What is your risk management improvement potential?

All organizations face uncertainty when pursuing objectives, strategies, operations, and project plans. To resolve and reduce uncertainty, organizations assess risk against their objectives, and develop capabilities to manage risk by embedding these capabilities within existing management systems and organizational processes.

An effective risk management program is essential to the success of any business, large or small, and should be tailored to meet its unique needs and requirements. Risk management creates value, protects the interests of internal stakeholders, manages the expectations of external stakeholders, and contributes to the achievement of goals and objectives.

Access ERM Domains Easily Using Dashboards

ERM domains are easily accessible from dashboards. Each domain contains several ERM capabilities to assess and users can start at any point.

Consult Criteria and Author Guidance

Each capability can be scored with a 0-4 rating which is scaled from 0 being non-existent to 4 being fully in place.

Consult Criteria and Author Guidance

During the assessment, users can consult the single set of author criteria and use the guidance notes for each capability to design the 5-year risk management improvement plans.

Capabilities are organized per domain

In total there are over 120 Enterprise Risk Management capabilities for risk managers to explore and assess their organizational capability against.

Generate 5-year risk Managment Plans
