Communications Risk Profiling Tool (9 slides)
What are the key risks addressed by the communications function? Examples of risks could include: lack of communications support limiting program success and take-up; inconsistent and confusing messaging; negative/ incorrect media coverage; inconsistent communications service offerings; the organization being constantly in crisis mode.
Risk profiling template for the communications function
The communications risk profiling tool (9 slides in PowerPoint) provides a template to help identify and assess communications risks and mitigation measures.
A summary risk template identifies examples of communications risks and mitigation measures that would need to be assessed in terms of impact, likelihood, trend, mitigation measures and priority based on the mitigation gaps (see risk summary in the preview chart images).
Templates are also provided for more detailed profiles or descriptions of the risks identified, including the risk owner, risk description, risk drivers, evidence of the scope of the risk/ risk indicators, impact, likelihood, trend, existing mitigation measures, mitigation gaps and actions required, and priority (see example of detailed risk profile in the preview chart images).
These templates are fully editable and are intended to encourage managers to hold regular discussions on the risks faced by their organization and whether the mitigation measures are adequate.
You will receive an email with a link to download the template (9 slides) in a PowerPoint fully editable format.
