Blog – The Organisational and Staff Benefits of Competency Assessments

June 29, 2017

The concept of a competency assessment is the kind of thing that can result in some initial anxiety for candidates and employees. If it leads to a workplace with unnecessary tensions, the result could be a skewed perspective of the actual competency of the assessment. Because of this, it’s important to make it clear right from the start how beneficial such a process can be for both individual staff members and for the organisation as a whole.

White Paper – Organisational v Project Change Management

May 15, 2017

White Paper – Stimulating Innovation with Risk Management

March 28, 2017

In a highly competitive global market, size and reputation alone are not enough to succeed. Organisations need to recognise that however good they are, however desirable their products or services, a competitor will challenge their position with a more desirable product or service. Lack of innovation is not an option; it is a risk as great as any risk in the organisation’s risk register. It is time for the risk manager to show his/her true colours, manage the innovation risk and become the champion of change.
