Presentation Title:

‘Managing Project Risk Through the Use of Compliance – HIPPA, SOX and Other Regulations’ -- Presented by Shrini Keskar-- Vice President of Global Operations at Larkspur Technology Solutions & Systems, Inc.

Presentation Abstract:

Risk Management is a prerequisite for the execution of projects in any type of organization but is especially important for those organizations whose projects also include legal or regulatory compliance activities such as HIPPA or Sarbanes-Oxley. Developing an effective strategy to plan and execute compliance activities is crucial to project success for these types of organizations.

Shrini Keskar will present a set of approaches and discuss a set of questions that CFOs, Department Leaders and Project Managers can ask in order to properly assess the level of regulatory compliance within their organizations for their IT systems, as well as their project management, operational and financial activities. Topics discussed will include:

  • How and why IT systems play a significant role in regulatory compliance
  • The risks of lack of compliance
  • How to gauge compliance
  • Program steps to ensure compliance
  • Questions to ask regarding compliance
  • Why transformation needs to become compliant
  • How compliance can turn into a strategic asset and market differentiator
  • How project managers are the key drivers in achieving organizational compliance success

Speaker Biography:

Shrini Keskar leads the Risk Management consulting practice for Commodities Management Healthcare domains at Larkspur Technology, a boutique consulting firm. He co-founded Larkspur technology in 2002 with the purpose of driving innovation for businesses to create unique differentiators and to provide an unconditional and par excellence service to its clients. His leadership helped transform the aviation fuel industry on a global scale, where lack of automation and compliance used to be the norm. Shrini and his team transformed a small jet fuel reseller into a knowledge and customer service driven organization that led to the client's growth from $150 Million to $700 Million in revenue. This reorganization and the resulting improvements spurred the creation of new and innovative processes that were subsequently adopted by larger companies and International airlines, including Barclays, General Mills, Netjets, Japan Airlines, and Singapore Airlines, to name a few.

He innovated a partnership for companies to reach outside of their comfort zone and go global in the quest for business expansion and growth. As an avid world traveler and entrepreneur, he is very aware and ambitious of social entrepreneurship that would not only help transform businesses but also transform the world.
