Risk Management Simulation Game for City Councils. The Case of Poland.


  • Anna Pikos


The public sector around the globe has faced many radical challenges. The Public Finance Act of 27 August 2009 imposes an obligation on public sector finance entities to implement risk management policies. The essential aim is to improve the overall performance. A qualitative study conducted in city councils in Poland has shown that they find it problematic to introduce risk management within their structures. The author recognized four factors which determine the success in implementing this process: top management support, leader, internal communication and process continuous improvement. This paper explores further a risk management simulation game that was originally designed in 2012 by the author. Multiple game scenarios and solutions will be described. The simulation game will be a step-by-step guide to implementation of risk management into the structures of city councils.
