Very comprehensive overview of how to start an ERM program. Would be even better if the "ERM 101" course was made a prerequisite and the overlapping content removed. Would like to learn more about how to determine the risk rating/score.

Overall great course for an introduction to ERM. It would be helpful to see some examples of the process in action to help people understand how the concepts can be applied.

Great presentation Lynn, it was so insightful for implementation of ERM. In Slide 40, SWAT is used, I think it is SWOT. Thanks
