At Risk Alternatives, dealing with risks and improving processes are not expenses. They are investments.

Our mission is to build stronger communities by helping nonprofits and startups master risk management and process improvement. We train and support organizations as they inventory their risks, develop a prioritized punch list of the most important items, and implement a regular cycle to create a resilient culture. We also provide risk management board training, structured coaching on risk management and continuous process improvement, and web-based awareness building and training.

 

At Risk Alternatives, you learn what to focus on first, giving you awareness and peace of mind. And because we help you identify opportunities as well as threats, your risk management and process improvement efforts can unlock value throughout your organization.
