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.
