Practical ideas: Join forces with the managers responsible for other areas of performance improvement

Risk managers should build relationships and join forces with the other managers responsible for performance improvement initiatives, like lean management, quality, safety, environment, security or others. Risk managers should participate in relevant major performance improvement workshops (for example, kaizen sessions during lean projects) to better understand sources of risks and suggested solutions, or at least review the results of those analytical sessions.

Risk managers should make sure that common risk management principles and language are used throughout the organization. However, they should be able to help tailor risk management tools for risks assessment and documentation to suit specifics of each function.

The ISO experts at the ISO Technical Committees level are doing it, making sure the language in ISO9001:2015 and ISO14000:2015 is consistent with ISO31000:2009, so no excuses for the risk managers on the ground.


Establish a temporary or permanent working group with managers responsible for other performance improvement initiatives

Develop a roadmap for improving consistency in terms of principles and terminology in managing risks across different fields / siloes
