If you are looking for a great new initiative for engaging the next generation of security leaders & risk managers, look no further.

The Institute of Strategic Risk Management(ISRM) will be hosting a series of Student workshops to look at specific aspects of academic strategic risk and crisis management, based on some of the classical texts, but seeing how they now have relevance to current issues and challenges.

 The first program, on 10th March, will be looking at Rittel & Webber’s 1973 paper on Wicked Problems, which is as relevant today as it was fifty years ago. This event will be held at 11 am EST  and will be hosted by Dr. David Rubens, Executive Director, ISRM.

Future workshops are planned on the work of Weick (Sense-Making), Klein (Recognition-Primed Decision Making ), Lagadec (Unthinkable events in inconceivable contexts), Boin (Leadership), Comfort (Crisis management in reality), and other similar foundational texts and authors, as well as reviews of the report such as A Failure of Imagination following 9/11, and A Failure of Initiative following Hurricane Katrina.
