Organizational Performance – Leadership – Culture – Resilience


Managing risk, whether it be Health & Safety, disruption (power outage) or non-disruption (business as usual) risk is the responsibility of everyone, leadership, management and workforce. A risk manager should not be seen as the person whose task it is to manage risk on behalf of everyone, but rather as the organization’s resident expert, the person who knows which tool or process to employ to manage a particular risk.

The adoption of a risk standard by an organization is more than just implementation of a process or a system. It’s the beginning of a journey, a way of doing things that involves everyone, a culture that enables rather than restricts.
