Managing Non-Technical Risks - MNTR


Non-technical or societal risks have become the main source of business delays and budget overruns in the oil and gas industry. Non-technical risks typically are related to political, regulatory, health, safety, security, environmental, and social issues. Mitigation requires good external awareness and stakeholder engagement skills, but also the willingness of technical and commercial teams to work closely together with the non-technical disciplines to accommodate non-technical perspectives in project designs and plans.

This course looks at both the internal and the external challenges that a company may face related to stakeholder engagement. On the external side, we look at current trends in western and non-western societies, we study key stakeholder groups, in particular those seen as 'difficult to deal with,' and then cover the practicalities of creating and maintaining effective relationships. However, a company will not be effective in its response to the external world if it is not well organised internally. Therefore, this course will also look at processes and tools to ensure internal alignment and cooperation with the aim to link external.
