Key projects

Risk operating model benchmark reports

Through in-depth interviews with risk leaders, we’re producing sector-specific comparisons of the main operating models used across organisations. We’ve now published our first risk operating models benchmark report offering unique insights into the risk team structure, capacity, resources and risk reporting lines at ten different energy and utility companies.

Emerging risk maturity model

Our emerging risk cohort have developed a maturity model to identify and benchmark global better practice, helping member organisations understand where they sit on both a capabilities scale and on a maturity scale when it comes to emerging risk management.

Risk culture maturity model and self-assessment tool

We’re developing a maturity model for members to benchmark better practice, assess their level of maturity, and provide them with a path to improving risk culture. Covering all aspects of risk culture – from leadership and speak-up culture to monitoring via dashboards – this model will help members understand the steps to take to improve their organisational risk culture.

Crisis taxonomy tool

Our resilience cohort is collaborating on the development of a taxonomy of crisis events. The group will also be working together to develop a database of critical controls, key risk indicators and playbooks aligned to the taxonomy.

Policy governance working group

Following a series of meetings and one-to-one interviews with a cohort of risk leaders, we recently developed a benchmark report to compare the different policy governance models currently being used. 

Benchmarking fast-moving digital companies

Following requests from members in our digital cohort, we’re preparing a benchmark survey highlighting to companies within this sector how risk functions implement and enhance risk management, covering their journey from being an innovative start-up to a large, established organisation.

Risk culture and behavioural indicators

Our risk culture cohort are collaborating on the development of a risk culture indicator library.

Integrated assurance maturity model 

Our assurance cohort is developing an integrated assurance benchmark to identify what better practice looks like and the steps organisations can take to achieve it.
