The Protiviti Academy

The Protiviti Academy offers high quality professional courses and seminars in the areas of Corporate Governance, Risk Management, Business Control and Performance Management & Measurement.

Training programs are characterised by:

  • A balance between concepts and practical examples;
  • a holistic approach in which the topic of the training is discussed in relation to other business aspects and developments;
  • sufficient attention for the practical implementation; 
  • and time for interaction and group discussions between participants.

The Protiviti Academy is an initiative of Protiviti in collaboration with Robert Half Management Resources, the world leaders in risk consulting and recruitment. Their wealth of practical experience and proven insights are used to develop and improve the courses.

Course Program: ‘How to Create Value from Enterprise Risk Management‘

Recently, many companies have implemented a risk management process or have taken initiatives to do so. At the same time many try to steer and evaluate their business based on economic value principles. Only a few have really succeeded to align those two processes tightly together and create actual value from Enterprise Risk Management

In order to further enhance the risk management process and make it sustainable, we have developed this one-day course which brings the developments within Enterprise Risk Management and Value Based Business Steering together. This is even more interesting now that e.g. Standard & Poor announced that the quality of a company’s Enterprise Risk Management system is part of the overall credit (risk) rating evaluation.
