ERM | Monitor, Measure, and Evolve

Posted by Andrew Masini on May 25, 2017 11:12:29 AM

 

In our previous posts on Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), we defined ERM and addressed how to set up the program and use it to assess and treat risks. We have come a long way! In this post, we evaluate the program.

 

ERM is not a static program. An effective approach to evaluating and enhancing the performance is a three-part one: measure, monitor and, most importantly, evolve.

ERM | Risk Appetite and Risk Tolerance: The Path to Informed Decision Making

Posted by Andrew Masini on Feb 1, 2017 12:08:27 PM

In our previous posts in this series, we introduced Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) as a “portfolio view” of risk and discussed various aspects of implementing ERM: roles, culture, a framework and preparing your organization. Now, we’ll begin looking at the “big picture” viewpoint of risk, starting with identifying and prioritizing risks. In the ERM process, management (1) determines acceptable levels of risk, (2) identifies and measures risks throughout the entire organization and aggregates the results, and (3) determines if the aggregated results exceed the acceptable levels. Risk Appetite and Risk Tolerance are the expressions of the “acceptable levels” of risk.

Implementing ERM | Establishing the Roles, Objectives and Context

Posted by Andrew Masini on Dec 16, 2016 3:26:57 PM

In our previous post, Taking a Closer Look at Enterprise Risk Management, we introduced Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) as a strategic discipline that affords a “portfolio” view of all threats and opportunities throughout an organization.  We contrasted ERM with the traditional “silo” approach to risk management, where various parts of an entity manage their risks with no overarching risk management strategy.

Taking a Closer Look At Enterprise Risk Management

Posted by Andrew Masini on Nov 17, 2016 10:58:35 AM

Every organization is faced with risks and needs to practice some form of risk management in order to maintain the health of the entity. Many take a traditional approach, where risk is managed in silos, with each leader of a business unit (sales, operations, finance, HR, etc.) responsible for managing the risks that fall within his or her area of responsibility.

What’s Behind the Counter? Enterprise Risk Management Can Be a Retailer’s Edge

Posted by Andrew Masini on Oct 19, 2016 7:06:42 PM

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) concepts can help retailers create a competitive advantage out of the business of managing risk. ERM’s “portfolio view” collects all risk and mitigation activity into a single Risk Register. This enables management to coordinate mitigation efforts across functions, rather than leaving risk to be managed in a patchwork fashion among various pockets in the organization. These are the critical areas for retail organizations where embracing an ERM approach adds value and opportunities that would likely otherwise be “missed:”

Oil and Gas Consolidation: Hidden Risk in the Pipeline

Posted by Andrew Masini on Oct 5, 2016 3:20:59 PM

Nine out of the 10 largest bankruptcies in the first half of 2016 were energy companies, according to investment insights publication The Turnaround Letter. Eight of those were oil and gas companies, specifically. Such widespread failures throw not just assets but whole segments of operations up for  grabs.  As the buyers assimilate these operations, it is no surprise that the acquisitions change the risk profiles of the new owners.
