Transforming risk management

Derek is responsible for risk and assurance at a multinational corporation with three full-time employees working in his team. Before he joined the firm, risk management was perceived internally as a compliance exercise. He and his team are realigning risk management to support better decision-making. With a large portfolio and competing priorities, Derek is unable to dedicate the amount of time he would like to supporting his team in conceiving and implementing new risk management ideas. He turns to the Risk Leadership Network for support.

Intelligence platform

Derek’s team regularly log into the Risk Leadership Network’s Intelligence platform to learn how other companies are developing and implementing new risk initiatives.

Derek’s team discover a case study with a supporting framework of how another corporation has defined their risk appetite. The case study also outlines steps taken to turn a ‘flat document’ into a practical tool to enhance decision-making. Derek’s team downloads an editable copy of the company’s appetite framework, ready to adapt and use.

Derek signs up to a scheduled virtual meeting focused on the practical application of risk appetite. The group exchange experiences, lessons learnt and tips with one another and subject matter experts.

Future-proofing risk management

Tom is the head of risk management at a mid-sized corporation. He and his team have built a strong risk framework and culture. However, they are aware they operate in markets that are experiencing a high pace of change, and are focusing more on horizon scanning to understand how they should adapt their approach in the future. In the past, Tom has relied on industry conferences to provide this intelligence. He’s now looking to supplement these insights with detailed discussions with risk practitioners outside his immediate network and geography. He turns to the Risk Leadership Network.
