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.

Tailings 2.0 course: Space observation, quantitative risk assessment bring value and comply with societal demands.

A brand new course from the authors of Improving Sustainability through Reasonable Risk and Crisis Management (2007) and The Long Shadow of Human‐Generated Geohazards: Risks and Crises (2016), in cooperation with MDA corporation, the largest provider of space observation data and solutions (radar interferometry -InSAR- and optical solutions).
A course beneficial for many stakeholders
This course is beneficial for many stakeholders including, but not limited to those who:
Why this course?
The key note lecture by Henry Brehaut at TMW2017 stated that “….clearly, the need emerges to develop risk assessments that are detailed and updatable, that allow determining residual risks (after mitigations) in addition to drawing rational and sensible mitigative roadmaps”.
In addition, the recent UNEP report entitled “Mine Tailings Storage: Safety Is No Accident” asks mining companies to make environmental and human safety a priority in management actions and on-the-ground operations by requiring:
All those point go in the direction of long term monitoring and observation, in addition to updated risk assessments which are the subject of this course.
A seamless two pronged approach consisting of Space Observation and Quantitative Risk Assessment synergy delivers value to the mining industry and regulators.
In this course we will show how a seamless two pronged approach consisting of Space Observation and Quantitative Risk Assessment synergy delivers value to the mining industry and also regulators. We will show how modern Space Observation (a mix of radar and optical satellite image data, as well as specific algorithms) can become input into a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) platform.
We describe a QRA platform capable of using that “Rich Data” context to deliver an enhanced, updated risk landscape of a project or operation. The QRA platform has to be updatable, scalable, drillable and finally also convergent to maximize benefits.
In addition this course provides case histories of specific applications where this joint technology delivers clear benefits to miners and governments, allowing for better Risk Informed Decision Making, which in turn generates value.
The two pronged approach brings significant advantages to mining end-users, whether they are mining managers, tailings stewards, other key stakeholders, and finally, the general public.
Thus, by virtue of this joint technology it is for example possible to identify emerging crises; check and update alert thresholds and finally, in timely and orderly manner, update probabilities and all other significant hazards and risk parameters. This allows to understand where projects or operations stand in term of risk mitigation at discrete and up to almost real-time pace, if and when required.
During the day we will work through all the phases of the approach (based on the ORE methodology -Optimum Risk Estimates- ©Oboni Riskope Associates Inc.), including:
