Posted by The ALS Group on Aug 3, 2020 12:43:13 PM

As companies think about their supply chain and the risks that are inherent with that area, a good place to start is with your contract terms with the supplier – what are the terms you want? What are the terms you have agreed to?

With the unsettling state of affairs of the world today, a manufacturer or distributor has to be properly vetted and the terms of supply carefully considered. What is an acceptable delay or non-delivery?

Notaries are essential. You may know one or may be one yourself, and chances are, you will need one in the course of your life.

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.

The 10 Fundamentals of a Sound Risk Management Program

Posted by The ALS Group on Feb 28, 2017 9:25:48 PM

More than 80% of companies don’t manage risk effectively. Is yours one of them?

A 2014 survey by a non-profit business research firm found that fewer than 20 percent of executives say their companies effectively manage risk. Companies will often have a process in place to identify and monitor risks. But they fall short when it comes to actually implementing practices to manage those risks as part of the overall strategic plan.

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.
