It is not a time to throw away risk management thinking. It is a time to bring it into action.
As a supplement to our weekly webinar series on Applying Enterprise Risk Management Thinking to COVID-19, we've created a free sample assessment workbook to manage your COVID-19 organisational health.

The assessment tool is split into 8 focus areas:
Each area of focus is split into sub-categories on each individual focus page. You can use the provided example questions for each focus area as a starting point to assist you in your assessment or you can add your own set of questions.

After you answer the sample questions, you can use the sliders on the summary pages to enable you to score your status and progress period-on-period for each focus area and for your entire COVID-19 management plan.
These summary pages can then be included in your board or executive reporting pack.
