Implement Selected Strategies
The application of this step of the risk management process will vary from school board to school board. Implementation plans may be developed on a board wide basis or on a departmental basis, depending on the scope and the nature of the risk issue.
Many organizations establish risk management committees to implement specific programs or to act as a sounding board for risk management issues. Such a committee may also have authority to approve or reject activities or programs based on pre-determined risk management criteria. (See section – Risk Management Committees)
The best implementation plan will involve “buy in” from all stakeholders, and in particular, should include senior administration. A risk manager or lead resource should be given authority to oversee the implementation and to ensure compliance with selected strategies on an on-going basis. If a risk management committee is struck, the risk manager would act as a lead resource.
