MBA Risk Management Module
Location: SAA – School of Management
Organizer/where: SAA Turin (University of Turin School of Management)
This is the fourth edition of our Risk module in MBA course at the SAA (University of Turin, Italy, School of Management).
Through a series of exercises of increasing complexity delegates will have the opportunity to practice the correct glossary and then:
MBA Risk Management Module
We make a point to illustrate each concept with countless anecdotes and “vignettes”. Furthermore this year we will use the horrific highway accidents in Bologna as well as the Morandi Bridge disaster to illustrate numerous aspects of risk management.
Delegates will e able to realize by themselves the limitation of classic, common practice 4×4 or 5×5 risk matrix approaches (FMEA). They will come to understand the advantages of modern approaches, especially when risk informed decision-making (RIDM) is requested.
This year again we will offer delegates the opportunity to use a Riskope test which delivers a view on the participant talents and risk taking archetypes.
We will then perform exercises first with “homogeneous” groups, i.e. delegates with similar talents and archetypes, then with “mixed” groups.

Water Management and Treatment – Risks and Best Practices
Location: The Westin Ottawa
Water Management and Treatment – Risks and Best Practices Description:
Water has become a strategic issue for the industry as it can be both a threat and an opportunity. Thus decisions about water have grown increasingly complex. As a result new tools are being applied to enable holistic assessments of water management in mineral processing. These aim at improving performance of projects while reducing multi-hazard risks since pre-feasibility stage .
The course will draw on examples of existing and/or historic operations to explain the benefit of adopting modern best practices in water treatment, tailings management, and finally risk assessments. In brief, the participants will learn the following:
Block 1: Introduction: Change in industry’s thinking about water
Block 2: Effects of water on project performance:
Block 3: Review of Water Management and Treatment Risks:
Block 4: Best Practices – Risk Adjusted Life Cycle Cost Analysis
Block 5: Closing remarks:

Regulators are more and more demanding risk-based evaluations in permitting tailings facility construction, operation, and closure. The public is asking for a path to “zero failures”. Mining companies are more and more sensitive to the consequence of tailings failures and want to reduce risk without incurring excessive costs.
Risk practitioners are asking hard questions about what constitutes a tolerable (real world) risk. Practitioners are demanding clarification of what constitutes good practice in the use of formal risk-based decision making (RBDM) tools in the management of tailings facilities. The public and insurers are more and more asking questions that only rational, quantitative risk assessment (QRA) can answer.
This course is for all who have to design, permit, construct, operate, insure and ultimately close a mine tailings facility, waste rock dump, or spent heap leach pad.
The course describes the use of risk assessment and decision making methods during all phases of the management of a mine waste facility.
Topics included are:
Case histories spanning some thirty years and spreading from South Africa to Latin America, Canada and Europe will be used through role-plays to illustrate the use of risk analysis and decision making in both informal and formal ways as part of the professional and responsible management of mine tailings facilities. Attendees will leave the course equipped to select methods, to apply principles, and to make decisions leading to better, safer management of their mine tailings facilities.
The course is intended for:
