We need to pay attention if we are to get there!!



Enterprises who don’t take cognizance of their risks and the impacts they have, are and will continue to fall behind and struggle to adapt or survive. As business continues to innovate, and competition becomes fiercer, it is logical that more risk will need to be taken on. And don’t believe for a minute that throwing up the defences will ensure survival. Going on the offensive, and taking risks that add value, in a controlled, managed way won’t just encourage organizational growth, but also go a long way to creating a far more palpable link between the functions of risk management, and the strategic growth and blueprints for success.

Some points to consider

  • Are enterprises really being cognizant of their risks and their impacts and taking action?

  • Does leadership prioritize risk as they should?

  • Why is it that a lot of research still reflects management/leadership not understanding the risk analysis that their managers show them? How many risk reports go into the filing cabinets?

  • Do risk managers really learn from history and therefore complete realistic assessments that create value for enterprises?
