Future of risk 2023-2026: people and capabilities

What are the changing skills and responsibilities of Risk and how can risk leaders prepare their teams to be ready for the opportunities that arise? Request to see the first report our unique "Future of Risk" series through a short presentation.
Several mature CROs in our network have identified "determining the future of the risk profession and the future value of risk management" as their key priority to address, so we've conducted this research and subsequent peer collaboration for them.
Through deep dives with senior risk experts from around the world, our series explores six essential pillars: People, Structure, Governance, Regulation, Technology and Culture. This is the first pillar in the series.
We're only able to show this data to prospective members - in-house corporate risk leaders at large non-financial institutions in Europe, MENA and Asia-Pacific.

Participants were hand selected for each pillar in this series, based on areas of interest, knowledge and experience. We typically interviewed four to five people per pillar, asking each interviewee the same set of structured questions in one hour, 1-to-1 conversations. All insights are anonymised.
In general, our participants have (or have recently held) CRO or very senior in-house risk roles. All come from large organisations with complex risk profiles; however some have large risk teams, while others operate very leanly (where relevant to the findings, this has been noted).
Despite the fact our research focused on large organisations, we believe our findings are relevant for risk leaders across the profession, as they highlight common challenges across the contemporary corporate landscape.

We developed this pulse check to support a member on their specific risk priority: they wanted to understand how other large organisations use standards and guidelines to guide the development of their risk management policy.
Yes, we regularly create benchmarks or pulsechecks in response to our members' priorities. Take a look at some of our latest benchmarks here. Through our bespoke, consierge "network assistance" service, we deliver these niche reports in a timely way to meet the exact needs of the organisation who requested it. Of course, the benchmarks are often useful for other organisations too and we share the results. If you'd like us to create a benchmark for your organisation, please fill in this form and we'll get back to you with a time-frame and membership proposal.
Please fill in the form and we'll present the key findings to you*, and discuss how our members are leveraging the data in the report to operationalise and accelerate ERM better practice.
Due to the high value data in the report, we only send the report to members of Risk Leadership Network.
*Subject to approval. You must be the risk lead at a global manufacturing organisation to take part.
Yes. Members of Risk Leadership Network work with a network manager to make sure we meet your risk priorities. If there's an informal benchmark that would assist you in your priorities, we'll create it for you in a timely manner. Most benchmarks are complete within 8 weeks of request. Tell us more about the benchmark you need and we'll get back to you with timescales and a membership proposal.
