2.3 Summary of Course
In a rapidly changing global world, with decreasing product life cycles and increasing
customer and societal expectations placed upon businesses, there are significant and
increased risks that have the potential to imperil value creation by businesses.
In this world, value is put at risk - by competition, or failures of corporate leadership,
strategies, processes and operating capabilities. Developing effective ways of
managing such Business Risks is proving to be a central agenda item for organisations
seeking continuing success.
This course addresses this emergent field conceptually, technically and speculatively
by examining the tools, techniques and approaches used to identify measure and
manage business risks which are designed to enable managers to create value in the
face of the ever changing environment confronting them. The course makes extensive
use of case studies and research reports.
ACCT5919 – Business Risk Management  2
2.4 Course Aims and Relationship to Other Courses
The aims of the course are as follows:
1.  To provide a practical understanding of the nature of business risks organisations
confront.
2.  To examine the impact of risk on the decision-making processes of organisations.
3.  To review the techniques used to identify, codify and quantify these risks.
4.  To examine strategies and techniques used to mitigate the impact of these risks
on the business, including the role of strategy formulation and implementation
and the development of effective risk control strategies, processes and
structures.
This course will assist students to better understand the significance of adequately
assessing and managing risk in the context of the management of business operations
and in making informed business decisions. The course therefore builds upon material
in other management accounting course offerings.

3 LEARNING AND TEACHING ACTIVITIES
3.1 Approach to Learning and Teaching in the Course
The course is conducted in a single 3 hour block each week, which includes a lecture,
student presentations and group workshops. The course makes extensive use of case
studies to demonstrate real life examples of situations where specific issues in the area
of risk management have been either poorly or well managed. Students are allocated
to syndicate groups and will be responsible for presenting one of the case studies
during the course.
ACCT5919 – Business Risk Management  5
3.2 Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies
Students will be allocated to syndicate groups and one of the syndicate groups will
present a case study each week during the course. The case study examines how
organisations managed or mismanaged major risk events that confronted the
organisation. These case studies are intended to provide examples of the practical
application of the risk management techniques and approaches that are examined
during the course.
Students will complete an individual assignment which analyses the management of a
major risk event. The assignment is intended to develop students’ analytical and report
writing skills.

4.2.1 Assessment Task 1 – Individual Assignment Report – Due Date Week
Commencing 15 April 2013.
The management of your firm is proposing to develop a manual, for internal use, the
purpose of which is to train staff in areas of major risk, so that your company can avoid
experiencing similar failures in risk management procedures. Management are aware
that you have recently completed a course in business risk management, and have
asked you to prepare a case study for inclusion in the manual covering one of the
following six cases or another case of your choice (see below):
Company/Incident  The Risk Event
Fukushima Daiichi  - Nuclear disaster
BP  - The Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico
European Governments  - The European Financial Crisis
Parmalat  - Failures in corporate governance & fraud
News Corporation  - Phone-hacking scandal
Boeing and Airbus  - Strategic actions surrounding the launch
of the Airbus A380 and/or the 787
Another Case Study of your choice*
ACCT5919 – Business Risk Management  6
* If this option is chosen the case must receive prior approval from your supervisor
(Course Presenter) based on a brief written proposal (of one (1) to two (2) A4
pages) submitted no later than the end of Week 3, ie Friday 22 March 2013.
Please ensure that your email address is included to facilitate correspondence.
If you chose to complete a report on one of the six cases listed above you do not need
to submit the proposal referred to above, simply submit your report by the due date.
The Project
Management has agreed the following specific tasks after discussions with you:
1. Describe the facts surrounding the case. Material for the analysis of the case
should be drawn from the details of the case as reported in the press, internet,
or other sources such as books and journals, and should be fully referenced.
2. You are required to identify at least two, and at most three, risk management
issues illustrated by the case. Compare and contrast the way in which these
issues were dealt with by the firm(s) involved with material presented in the
course or other reference material dealing with the concepts or issues that the
case illustrates. In your report you may also assess the effectiveness with which
the crisis, created as a result of the failures in risk management evident in the
case, were managed.
3. Management believes that the quality of this material will not be judged on the
number of concepts or issues illustrated by a particular case study but on how
well each concept or issue is illustrated. Therefore greater depth in the
assessment of the risk management issues rather than breadth is required.
Indeed, some of the management team argued that each case should only
illustrate one concept or issue, but finally agreed that there may be
circumstances where more than one is desirable.
4. Prepare a report as specified below.
The Report
Your report should contain the following sections:
1. Executive Summary: A concise review of the report including major findings and
conclusions. This should be no more than one (1) A4 page. This section is
allocated 4 marks out of 30.
2. Introduction and Aims: Outline the general aims of the analysis and discuss the
approach you have taken to develop your case material. Make explicit the criteria
that you have used in choosing the risk management issue(s) identified in the case.
This should be no more than one to two (1-2) A4 pages. This section is allocated 3
marks out of 30.
3. Case Study: This section should include the full text of your case study and
analysis. Please be concise and limit this section to no more than six (6) pages.
Management has specifically asked for some shorter examples for inclusion in their
manual. In the event that your case study is included in the manual it will fully
acknowledge you as the author (management believe this will be great “profile” for
you). Longer case studies should be negotiated with your supervisor (course
presenter). This section is allocated 12 marks out of 30.
4. Conclusion. Identify the lessons that can be learned from the case, your
conclusions and the nature of any control procedures and/or risk treatment systems
that you believe should have been implemented or where failures occurred. This
should be no more than three (3) A4 pages. This section is allocated 9 marks out of
30.
5. References: Please list the sources you have consulted for the completion of the
report. This section is allocated 2 marks out of 30.
ACCT5919 – Business Risk Management  7
Grading
In grading the report marks will be allocated for each of the above sections of the report
as above. Creative and innovative work will be rewarded. In particular in assessing the
case study the assessment will consider the extent to which the case study effectively
links the facts of the case to the risk management issues that have identified, and the
extent to which the conclusions and lessons highlight better ways of addressing and
managing the risk management issues identified.
General
The report should include a cover page (indicating your name and student number)
and be no longer than nine (9) to ten (10) single sided A4 pages (size 12 font, one and
a half line spacing) excluding the cover page and any attachments.
4.2.2 Assessment Task 2 – Group Syndicate Presentation and Report
All students will be allocated to a syndicate group. Each syndicate will be allocated to
one of the case studies listed in the course outline under each week’s work, eg the
Case Study for Week 2 is the Heblon case.
The syndicate is required to present the case to the class during the session listed. The
scope of the presentation will obviously vary from case to case, but as a guide the
following are intended to assist you with your presentation.
1.  Describe the facts surrounding the case. Material for the analysis of the case
should be drawn from the details of the case included in the material provided for
the Session. If appropriate, additional credit will be earned for the use of additional
references sourced from press reports, the internet, or other sources such as
books and journals, and should be fully referenced.
2.  Identify the risk management issues illustrated by the case.
3.  Compare and contrast the way in which these issues were dealt with by the firm(s)
involved with material presented in the course or other reference material.
4.  Identify any lessons that can be learned from the case.
5.  Identify what proscriptive action was taken by the firm involved or regulators, and
identify any broader consequences of the case that have added to the
management of risks or the understanding of risk management processes.
6.  A formal presentation should be made to the class. The duration of the
presentation should be 25 -35 minutes. If you propose to spend longer than this
time you should consult the Course Presenter prior to the evening of the
presentation.
7.  Since the class will have read the material you may wish to make the presentation
interactive and to draw out the views of the class on certain aspects of the case.
This could be done, for example, by posing provocative questions or giving the
class a short exercise to do.
Syndicates are free to determine the style of the presentation which could include
(without limitation) a formal presentation, a role play, interviews. Syndicates should
assume that all members of the class will have read and prepared for the case and
therefore class interaction including exercises can be incorporated into the
presentation.
The marks for the presentation will be 14 out of the available 20 and following criteria
will be used for grading the class presentations:
•  Time management (eg the pace and total time of the presentation)
•  Clarity of communication (expression of ideas)
ACCT5919 – Business Risk Management  8
•  Engagement with the audience
•  Structure of the presentation (transition and logic, quality of slides etc)
•  Content of the presentation (insights and applications)
On the night of the Syndicate Presentation each Syndicate will be required to submit a
report. The report has no formal word limit but as a guide the report should be at least
5 to 6 pages. The report will present the key features of the syndicate’s presentation
and the syndicate’s findings and conclusions in relation to the case. These findings will
cover the issues listed on points 1-5 above (as relevant), and will in particular detail the
syndicate’s conclusions about the lessons from the case for risk management. The
marks for the report will be 6 out of the available 20.
4.3 Assessment Format
Refer to Section 4.2 for details.
4.4 Assignment Submission Procedure
Completed individual assignments are to include a completed cover sheet and must be
submitted at the start of class during week 6, ie the week commencing 15 April 2013.
