"To be alive in the twenty-first century is to rely on countless complex systems that profoundly affect our lives―from the electrical grid and water treatment plants to transportation systems and communication networks to healthcare and the law. But sometimes our systems fail us."
Excerpt from Meltdown: Why Our Systems Fail and What We Can Do About It
Please join us for a presentation by Chris Clearfield, co-author of the National Business Book Award 2019 Winner "Meltdown: Why Our Systems Fail and What We Can Do About It."
Through vivid examples of high stakes corporate failures, Chris addresses the risks associated with complex business systems―paradoxically sometimes arising from risk mitigation practices themselves―and provides solutions on how to safeguard against catastrophic damage.
Following this keynote presentation is a panel discussion on crisis and risk management challenges faced by in-house counsel, including a look at what keeps GCs up at night according to the results of the Bennett Jones Crisis and Risk Management Survey of In-House Counsel.
This 90-minute webinar will provide in-house counsel and senior management with a deeper understanding of the hidden sources of risk in complex systems and organizations and draw out insights from experienced legal and business advisors on developing, maintaining and applying crisis and risk management protocols.
