Session I Title Root Cause Analysis (with some Soft Skills)

• Have you even communicated a recommendation only to discover the implemented recommendation didn’t resolve the problem?
• Do you feel like you identify symptoms of problems?
• Does your organization use the Band-Aid approach to correcting deficiencies?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this course is for you.

Root cause analysis is a process to identify and resolve the root cause behind problems to prevent recurring failures. However, conducting a thorough root cause analysis (RCA) presents many challenges:
1. To conduct a thorough RCA requires time, resources, and some essential skills, including emotional intelligence, relationship building, communication, analytical, and critical thinking.
2. Process owners, management, and auditors engaging in Root Cause Analysis often find identifying the root cause is hard especially when you don’t have the right tools and methods to perform the RCA.
3. The root cause may be politically sensitive and left uncommunicated.

This workshop is designed to help you overcome the above challenges. Participants of this workshop will be able to apply the needed skills, tools, and methods to conduct a root cause analysis for the most important problems. Through hands on practice with a problem you are currently facing, you will apply proven root cause analysis tools and techniques to identify the cause. Moreover, participants will also be able to communicate the root causes and identify alternative solutions.

Session I Title IT Governance / Oversight with Risk Management and Cybersecurity

Growth and frequency of Governance, Risk, and Control (GRC) discussions are inspiring; however, the increase in GRC failures is alarming, including failures in IT Governance and Oversight. Often, it is far to late to correct GRC problems and many organizations never fully recover. As the cybersecurity risks increase, it is more important than ever to connect risk management with governance and oversight before a problem occurs. But how? Participants in this engaging and interactive session will address real life situations to explore oversight and IT governance practices. Participants will explore the role of the CIO and integration of IT Governance across the organization to ensure IT has good governance, appropriate risk appetite, and sound practices to support the organization’s needs.
