In conjunction with Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), ALARM is embarking on a research project to gain a better understanding of the ways in which risk is reported to boards and committees within organisations that deliver services to communities and citizens in the UK. The intention of this research is to establish what existing arrangements are in place for reporting risk information, and how this is used to inform decision-making.
It encompasses three key stages: documentary analysis of existing guidance on risk reporting, a UK wide survey, and interviews with key individuals within organisations. The outcome of this research project will be to make recommendations on risk reporting, based on the research findings, and to provide a generic guide on risk reporting for our members.
This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in shaping the future of risk reporting.
If you are aware of any guidance or publications in the area of risk reporting which may be of use in the first stage of research (documentary analysis), please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
If you are willing to take part in the second stage survey (risk managers/responsibility for risk) or stage three (board and committee) interviews, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, with your contact details, indicating your preference of survey participation or interview.
ALARM is leading on this project. For more information, please contact Paul Dudley.
