This session is the first in a series of webinars that will introduce the core concepts of Risk Management. This includes how to establish and utilize risk assessment criteria, how risk assessments fit into a broader risk management program, and how an enterprise-wide view of a portfolio of risks within your organization can position your organization for greater success in achieving its objectives. This first session will define Risk Management fundamentals utilizing best practices in federal government and explores how these principles and methods can be applied in the federal lab environment.
