The Next Art Movement: Forecasting Changes in Your Risk Landscape
The work of Wassily Kandinsky is familiar to fervent fans of abstract art. In his early life, Kandinsky studied law and economics and worked in academia; later inspired by an exhibition of French impressionists, at the age of 30 Kandinsky decided to become an artist. Many nonprofit leaders begin their risk management journey in a mindset like Kandinsky—focusing on compliance and developing policies intended to keep their missions, clientele and staff ‘safe.’ It’s only later on that these leaders recognize the difficulty and necessity of anticipating the actual risks their organizations might face. Unless you believe in seers and palm readers, you know that the future is probably impossible to predict. This workshop dispenses with futile prediction and focuses on tools used to effectively forecast and anticipate risk events. Included in the session is a hands-on exercise exploring the “Cone of Uncertainty.” Learn lessons and techniques to translate the abstract forms in your risk landscape into colorful, inspired forecasts.
