About the CRSA Forum

The CRSA Forum operates in the fast-paced world of corporate governance and risk management.   It is an independent group formed by enthusiastic practitioners and academics who value the ability to share experiences and learn lessons from each other.   Originally set up in the early 1990s to promote CRSA (Control and Risk Self Assessment) techniques, it has developed over the years to meet the challenges of corporate governance and risk management with CRSA being one of the tools used to meet those challenges. CRSA is particularly relevant to the human aspects of governance and risk and can be a key tool for understanding and assessing culture and behaviour in organisations.

The Forum benefits from a wide network of practitioners and experts who offer their time and knowledge freely so that collectively we can all better manage risk (including strategic financial, environmental and operational risks) in our organisations.   Members are drawn from a wide range of organisations, from investment banking and insurance to public and not for profit enterprises and professional disciplines including academia.  In keeping with the values of the group, membership is open to all practitioners and people with a genuine interest in the subjects irrespective of experience or qualifications.

One of the Forum’s strengths is the diversity of background and skills that participants bring.  Membership is free and informal.  Members from new practitioners to executive and non-executive directors share their successes, experiences, concerns and frustrations in a positive enabling environment. Members also help each other outside of the more formal meeting structure such as assisting less experienced members with risk meetings in their organisation.

The Forum is directed and controlled by a small Steering Group of Forum members. If you wish you can contact the Forum Steering Group Members for an informal discussion.  We also welcome members who may wish to share their experiences by presenting or leading practical sessions.

Our next meeting will be on 16 December 2016 near Westminster in London
