One thought on “Share your risk management story and win a free VIP pass to #RAW2020”
I first got involved in Risk Management in 2019 when I got a chance to work in a Risk Consulting and Training firm. It has been a great opportunity to learn and have first hand experience in how risk management is implemented especially with firms who are at the novice stage; and trainings how versatile risk management is.
I love and value risk management as:
1. It gives an opportunity to drive a firms strategy in the right direction. It detects weaknesses within the firm and if well understood and adopted enables the firm to seize opportunities that will aid in achieving the strategic objectives.
2. Risk management is a skill that adds value both professionally and personally. For example, you learn to recognize elements such as bias that have an effect on the business decisions that you make.
3. Risk management is a great platform for each business unit to evaluate its effectiveness.
I dislike it when Risk management:
1. Is not owned by department leaders and left to the hands of the Risk or Audit department.
2. Is seen as only avoiding the negatives and people fail to explore opportunities in a given risk.
3. As a profession is seen as a reserve of those who practice finance.
I wish that we can take Risk Management as an enabler in achieving strategic objectives and success of an organization and not an after thought when events such as the Covid 19 take place. I wish that the value of Risk Management is enterprise wide and a collective effort by those in management and the Board.
Risk management adds value and I believe that platforms such as the Risk Awareness Week 2020 enable risk practitioners and those interested in the field to challenge their beliefs in risk and enhance their skills for professional and personal growth.
