Warren Black,  Principal of Complexus
"An Introduction to Complexity and How it Influences Risk Management”

  • Risk Complexity and complex systems
  • System of systems and Risk Management techniques

Warren is an Engineer, Risk Professional and Complex Systems’ Advisor who has particular interest in understanding how the complexity sciences may offer a better means to controlling emergent risks within highly complex, operating systems. He consults to industry on how to improve Governance, Risk & Assurance practices so that they may reflect not only the degree of investment at risk, but also the specific complexities in play. Warren is currently engaged in a higher degree in research (PHD) program, whereby he is Investigating a Complex Systems Approach To Controlling Complex Organisational Risks, at the Queensland University of Technology.
