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

Business, favole e prodigi. Imparare a scrivere la propria favola per andare verso il successo. 

by Dr. F. Oboni, Ph.D & Dott.ssa R. Renaudo

Scrivere la propria favola é avere il potere di cambiare le cose:

impara a riscrivere il tuo business oltre la fiaba, verso la favola.

Business, favole e prodigi. Imparare a scrivere la propria favola per andare verso il successo.

Business, favole e prodigi. Imparare a scrivere la propria favola per andare verso il successo. Un viaggio interattivo e guidato tra la letteratura e le tecniche di presa di decisione aziendali più avanzate, basato sugli insegnamenti del formalista russo Vladimir Propp che propose una tecnica di analisi strutturale e funzionale adattabile a qualunque narrazione, compresa quella dei problemi attuali e futuri del tuo business.

Ogni imprenditore nel creare la propria azienda é infatti partito, come il personaggio delle favole, da una mancanza o da un desiderio iniziale e avrà trovato sul suo cammino ostacoli ed aiuti prima di raggiungere, se c’é riuscito, la “Principessa nella torre”. 

Business, favole e prodigi. Imparare a scrivere la propria favola per andare verso il successo.La fiaba é dove si trovano le nostre credenze, le paure che impediscono di poter vedere chiaramente il “paesaggio” che ci circonda. La favola é dove troviamo il cammino e diventiamo capaci di vedere veramente quello che le moderne tecniche di supporto alla presa di decisioni ci possono rivelare.

Scrivere la propria favola é avere il potere di cambiare le cose: impariamo a riscrivere i nostri business oltre la fiaba, abbandonando credenze e paure, verso la favola, grazie a visioni chiare rese possibili da metodologie innovative.

Perché dovrei andarci?

Tutti noi imprenditori partiamo con un sogno, una missione da raggiungere: durante questo seminario troverete i mezzi necessari a “sconfiggere il Drago e conquistare la Principessa”.

Che cosa imparerò?

Business, favole e prodigi. Imparare a scrivere la propria favola per andare verso il successo. In questo seminario utilizzeremo lo studio del formalista russo V. Propp sulla morfologia della fiaba per creare legami utili ad analizzare in modo funzionale la storia del nostro business e trovare delle soluzioni pensando “out of the box”.

Guardando il nostro lavoro di ogni giorno da un punto di vista completamente diverso, sarà più facile scoprire modalità e schematizzazioni allontanandoci da basi fuorvianti create da credenze o luoghi comuni.

Durante il seminario vedremo insieme come le varie funzioni che costruiscono una favola, come tanti mattoni, possono essere usate anche per ri-costruire lo schema del nostro business e trovare soluzioni a problemi che paiono annosi o impossibili.

A che cosa mi servirà Business, favole e prodigi. Imparare a scrivere la propria favola per andare verso il successo.

Un seminario altamente interattivo ed innovativo dedicato a tutti coloro che vogliono riscrivere il loro percorso di business cambiando punto di osservazione.

Una “prodigiosa” sinergia tra l’analisi letteraria derivante dagli antichi archetipi delle favole e le più moderne tecniche di supporto decisionale che ti servirà a trovare soluzioni laddove oggi vedi solo difficoltà ed incertezze.

Brief goal and objectives of the course Risk Assessment, Decision Making and Management of Mine Waste Facilities

This course is for all who have to design, permit, construct, operate, finance, insure, steward and ultimately close a mine tailing
s 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.

Authors and affiliation

Franco Oboni, Riskope, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Themes

  • Site selection for a new tailings facility using risk assessment and decision making methods.
  • Design of tailings facilities based on risk management and mitigation considerations.
  • Continuous performance improvement during the operation of a tailings facility.
  • Risk assessment in the conduct of dam safety inspections and reviews.
  • Tailings facility closure scenarios assessment using risk-based approaches.

Case histories spanning some thirty years and spreading from South Africa to Latin America, Canada and Europe will be used through role-playing 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.

Innovative methodologies based on sound and best practice risk assessment approaches will also be explained. These offer users:Risk Assessment, Decision Making and Management of Mine Waste Facilities

  • The possibility to perform discrete or real time updates (depending on the applications and the criticalities involved).
  • “Decluttering” the results, reducing the “overwhelming syndrome” often root-cause of inaction.
  • Enhancements in the internal and external communication process, thus supporting the social license to operateand the CSR efforts of the owners/operators.

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. It is time for miners to embrace Risk Management 2.0 and evolve from the obviously not always successful status quo!

Participants

The course is intended for:

  • Mine managers and operators, stewards who need to be sure the mine’s tailings facility, waste rock dump, or spent heap leach pad is safe, cost effective, and in accordance with current good risk management practice.
  • Consultants who design new mine waste disposal facilities, assist in their operation, and plan closure works and who therefore need to be aware of and able to incorporate new and relevant RA & RBDM methods.
  • Civil engineers who undertake dam safety inspections that demand the use of risk assessment methodologies.
  • Regulators who have to review and approve new tailings facilities, expansion of facilities, and ultimately the closure of such facilities.
  • Surface and groundwater hydrologists and specialists faced with management of surface water and seepage from tailings facilities, waste rock dumps, and spent heap leach pads.
  • Environmental scientists who are charged with protection the environment of the site and surrounding region of mine waste disposal facilities.
  • Financial institutions that finance or insure mines and their facilities and who need to be assured that the facilities are risk resilient.
