Risk and the management of risk are at the centre of all organisations; however, many organisations still take the view that risk is something that is best left to chance despite the growing need to manage business risks as part of the regulatory and prudential management obligations placed on today’s modern enterprise. It can be a source of potential loss or a contributor to poor performance. When understood and managed effectively, risk can create value and success, and risk management is all about driving success and business excellence. Whether an organisation has been in business for decades, in start-up mode, or driven by innovation, the risk is key in daily operations, regulatory compliance, strategy, and projects and transformation initiatives.
