The ability to master risk and manage the inevitable uncertainty associated with evaluating future outcomes is a key to sustainable competitive advantage. Traditional risk management approaches are no longer adequate in today's rapidly changing world in which the rules of wealth creation and preservation are ever evolving. They are too fragmented and function-driven. A new approach is needed - one that is cross-functional, integrated and adaptable in the face of constant change. Enterprise-wide risk management (EWRM) is a new strategic process which enables you to identify, measure and manage the entire range of business opportunities and risks facing your organisation. This value-generating process provides you with the discipline and tools to master risk as your organisation creates value. Enterprise-wide Risk Management guides you through the key stages of designing and implementing an integrated EWRM process in your organisation. Written by risk consultant James DeLoach, it is centred on the Business Risk Model(tm) he has developed.
It provides insight into the risk management practices of over 60 leading companies through in-depth interviews with their senior executives so you can learn from their experiences. This briefing facilitates the management of risk in a world of uncertainty so that you can capitalise on opportunities, risk and growth with confidence.
