The 6th RiskLab Forum was a huge, sold-out success with over 50 participants

Over 50 participants from 4 countries spend a day together to explore the theme of creating resilient organizations and better managing surprises.

We presented findings and prototyped a workshop format developed as part of the DTU-Brightline cooperation on better dealing with strategically relevant surprises.

The main themes were:

  • Understanding the different types of surprises an organization faces
  • Discussing the organizational journey understanding and (eventually) agreeing on the type and magnitude of the disruption and finally
  • Strategies, enablers and blockers to dealing with surprises.

One of the main take-aways for the participants was that we need to drastically reduce the time between the occurence of a fast- or slow-moving surprise, and the organization taking decisive action.

During the day, three industry experts contributed their viewpoints through impulse talks:

  • Lars Eriksen, Senior Director at Novo Nordisk and head of the Investment Project Office
  • Søren Jacobsen, Nobina Danmark
  • Lars Frisk, Chief Consultant Risk & Safety at Rambøll


A big thank-you to the co-organizers and supporters of the event: IDA Risk, Brightline, PMI and the University of Twente.
