This training is part of the 2015 Paperless Lab Academy conference. Conference theme: Manage the laboratory change process.
For whom? Managers, scientific as well as non-scientific, experiencing challenges in ICT-systems change.
Program: Risk management has become an important part of organizations’ daily practice due to increased complexity of regulation and operational processes. Especially in industries heavily relying on laboratories, risk management on ICT-systems change has gained importance. Firm value and customer safety are at stake should ICT-related risks materialize. Systems change towards cloud computing for instance is frequently addressed in industry literature. Although of great help, this literature still leaves managers questioning how exactly they can manage change and related risks in their own specific organizational context. Which risks can be identified? What are their probability of occurrence and impact in terms of business or patient safety? How can risk management practices be aligned with regulation and the overall goals of the company? To answer these questions comprehensively and so to make sound decisions on ICT-systems change, the use of risk management frameworks can be very rewarding.
The use of ICT-systems is deeply intertwined with organizational practice and change is much more encompassing then updating technological requirements. Managers of any kind involved in ICT-systems change might experience three basic viewpoints interplaying in the laboratory context: science, business and technology. As frames of reference, each of these viewpoints determine which risks are identified, how risks are valued and how risks are going to be controlled for.
Goal: This training will support sound decision making amongst managers of any kind experiencing ICT-systems change. After this training attendees can identify risks of cloud computing, categorize different viewpoints of organization members, relate them to risk management frameworks and apply the frameworks within local organizational contexts.
