This two-day workshop will explore the risk-based approach to collections care and application of risk management methodology in practice. Participants will work on a case study involving a historic interior and collections. In a series of practical exercises participants will learn to assess and rank collections based on their significance, identify potential risks using the QuiskScan methodology, analyse and rank specific risks, set priorities for risk reduction, develop options and discuss issues in collections care, such as strategic planning, prioritization and cost-effective resource allocation.
