The presentation will examine notions of risk and uncertainty in the external regulation and internal governance of universities and colleges in England. The talk will examine the relationships between executives, governors and regulators in risk handling, including key information dilemmas. It will explore the appropriate approaches, tools and artefacts that help better risk-taking. Data governance is becoming a key development in risk and reputation management. Rather than focus predominantly on risk as hazard, however, the presentation suggests that effective risk-taking – risk as both upside and downside – should be the institutional objective.
