Do you integrate uncertainty?
A central challenge of Risk and Strategy in general is that we have to make choices now, but the payoffs occur in a future environment we cannot fully know or control. Rigorously understanding the uncertainty you face starts with listing the variables that would influence a strategic risk management decision and prioritising them according to their impact. Focus early analysis on removing as much uncertainty as you can. Then apply Risk & Compliance tools such as simulation and scenario analysis to the remaining, irreducible uncertainty, which should be at the heart of your Risk strategy.
Risk & Control Frameworks:
In the aftermath of compliance projects since 2005, the multiple Governance-Risk-Compliance (GRC) frameworks did not systematically prove to increase risk awareness and risk management effectiveness, according to recent studies. Most (market-)finance related frameworks assumes that company management is behaving as rational economic agent, using the risk - reward balance as metric. Based on recent findings however, managers do not behave as rational economic agents and companies still encounter difficulties to define their risk appetite.
One possible option to bring more effectiveness is to use comprehensive integrated risk models as a key component of the organisation structure & culture. We help clients to design and implement integrated risk-management solutions - Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) - and bring a risk-reward perspective to strategic decision making:
