MBA Risk Management Module

Location: SAA – School of Management

Organizer/where: SAA Turin (University of Turin School of Management)

MBA Risk Management Module

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:

  • semantically correct structures of threat-to/ threat from,
  • hazard identification,
  • probabilities estimates,
  • multi-dimensional consequences evaluations and finally
  • risk.

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

Organizer/where: Canadian Mineral Processors (CMP) conference Ottawa. NB: conference is January 22-24 2019, the course is pre-conference on January 21st.

Water Management and Treatment – Risks and Best Practices

We will deliver this course in cooperation with David Kratochvil (BQE ) and Charles Dumaresque (Mining Association of Canada, MAC).

Objectives:

  • Examine links between water management and overall performance of mineral processing projects using examples from existing and historic operations.
  • Review water related risks and identify those that are commonly overlooked by mineral processors.
  • Explain the concept of risk adjusted life cycle cost analysis as the emerging best practice for holistic assessments of water issues and finally
  • Review current best practices available for tailings management and water treatment

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:

  • Why Net Present Value (NPV) analysis is inadequate as the sole criteria for decision making about water
  • How to identify common pitfalls of risk assessments and how to avoid them
  • What new water treatment techniques are available to improve water quality for re-use or discharge
  • Define best practices related to tailings water management and finally
  • How to arrive at risk adjusted life cycle costs of water.

Course Outline:

Block 1: Introduction: Change in industry’s thinking about water

  • Why? Mind your motive in addition to exploring the
  • Connection between tailings and water management

Block 2: Effects of water on project performance:

  • examples of historic and current projects in addition to analysis of impacts throughout project life cycle

Block 3: Review of Water Management and Treatment Risks:

  • Common shortcomings in risk assessments and how to prevent them

Block 4: Best Practices – Risk Adjusted Life Cycle Cost Analysis

  • Tailings management guide – link to water
  • Water treatment systems for modern industry
  • ORE (Optimum Risk Estimate) methodology and finally
  • Example of ORE application

Block 5: Closing remarks:

  • Role of mineral processors in solving water issues.
