Banks and financial institutions are exposed to a number of credit, operational, and market risks. The three Basel regulations - Basel I, II, and III - adopted a rigorous approach in their attempt to provide a reliable and risk-managed operating framework. They require banks to maintain an adequate capital level at all times in order to cover their aggregate risk. A number of approaches are used for identifying and measuring risk, then planning the capital requirement for the bank based on that risk. This course provides an overview of various approaches used for capital planning. More specifically, it presents components of the standardized measurement approach, the IRB approach, and the advanced IRB approach. It also aims to identify market risk and the capital requirement to cover that risk. Finally, the course outlines the risk-adjusted return on capital to quantify the amount of capital necessary to support all of a bank's operating activities.

Credit derivatives have seen immense growth over the past decade. They are used by hedgers to protect against credit risk and by speculators to take on credit exposure in the hope of earning high returns. Credit derivatives are also used by other financial institutions, such as banks, as a means of funding. Credit derivatives typically reference fixed income securities as a contract's underlying asset because of the inherent credit risk that arises from fixed income security ownership. Total return swaps have emerged as one of the most commonly known, and used, types of credit derivative due to their versatility and effectiveness in transferring credit risk from one entity to another. This course introduces some classic credit derivatives, such as asset swaps, basket and portfolio swaps, and principal protected notes, and also focuses on total return swaps and their applications. The course commences with an overview of debt instrument basics, which provides the basis for understanding its association with credit derivatives.

Coaching by definition is action-centered. This is the main thing that differentiates it from counseling. At this point in the coaching engagement, the coach and coachee will have agreed on and co-created the Strategic Action Plan, which defines the goals and activities that the coachee will be working on throughout the remainder of the experience.Techniques covered in this course will give the learner the tools needed to lead from behind as a coach. Leading from behind is providing guidance through skillful observation and communication techniques that help guide the coachee's discoveries, self-awareness, epiphanies, and 'aha' moments. Keeping the momentum of progress, staying the course, and creating detours characterize the coach's work in this phase. These are accomplished through coaching tactics that include questioning, listening, observing, and challenging.

The proven fact is that desired results are achieved more quickly with the guidance of a personal Coach. When a coach is working to drive performance, the coachee is being held accountable to do what they say they are going to do, and want to do. This phase of a coaching engagement is called the 'accountability phase' in coaching. It is also the phase when the 'shoulds and ought-tos' bubble to the surface - the things that a Coachee is unconsciously following, instead of their true aspirations. These 'shoulds and ought-tos come from outside the coachee, and it is in this phase that they must be dealt with, by either eliminating them or figuring out a way to deal with them. Towards the end of this phase, the coachee is clicking along and it's time to 'fire' their coach. The coach is no longer needed as the goals of the engagement are creating the coachee's desired outcome. The coach must be able to spot the pending conclusion of the engagement and set the coachee up for sustainability of performance using coaching tactics.

The commodities and energy markets are generally considered to be some of the largest markets in existence. Every day billions of dollars of commodities such as oil, coal, gold, and sugar are bought and sold between various traders acting on behalf of producers, manufacturers, and financial institutions. The derivatives market has seen explosive growth around these markets over the decades. Although traditionally used by farmers and other manufacturers to protect themselves against price movements that would affect their profitability, derivatives are now widely used by many financial institutions as a way to profit on speculation and arbitrage. Financial institutions, such as banks and hedge funds, are profit seekers by their inherent nature and are willing to take risks in return for these profits. Hedgers, on the other hand, look to protect themselves by removing risk or hedging. These two different points of view complement each other and have allowed the market to grow rapidly and become quite liquid- for every hedger there is almost always a speculator willing to take the opposite side of the trade. This course covers the fundamental characteristics of the commodities and energy markets. We examine the types of underlying products that are traded, such as various metals and energy producing chemicals, and we also examine what they are used for. We then identify various financial contracts known as derivatives whereby these products may be bought or sold at a predetermined price, in specific quantities, and for delivery at a future date. The course focuses on the features of forward and futures commodity contracts and swap and option commodity contracts and their uses for hedging, speculation, and arbitrage.

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is the methodology associated with the design of a process, product, or service, which results in Six Sigma output that satisfies both the external customer and internal business requirements. DFSS is an innovative strategy for the design or redesign of a process, product, or service from the ground up. This course examines several of the common methodologies utilized in Design for Six Sigma (DFSS), beginning with the two common counterparts to the DMAIC methodology: DMADV and DMADOV. Design for X is emerging as an important knowledge-based multifunctional approach to design that is aimed at particular prioritized process constraints, such as cost, manufacturability, testability, or maintainability. This course explores several constraints in more detail, offering strategies for achieving designs concentrated on the chosen criteria. Another recently developed approach, robust design, uses parameter and tolerance control to produce designs which will be reliable during manufacturing and while in use. This course will address the basic aims of parameter control, tolerance design, and statistical tolerancing. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.
