Risk Management in Organizations

In any organization, risk plays a huge role in the success or failure of any business endeavour. Measuring and managing risk is a difficult and often complicated task and the global financial crisis of the late noughties can be traced to a worldwide deficiency in risk management regimes. One of the problems in understanding how best to manage risk is a lack of detailed examples of real world practice. In this accessible textbook the author sets the world of risk management in the context of the broader corporate governance agenda, as well as explaining the core elements of a risk management system. Material on the differences between risk management and internal auditing is supplemented by a section on the professionalization of risk – a relatively contemporary evolution. Enterprise risk management is also fully covered. With a detailed array of risk management cases – including Tesco, RBS and the UK government – lecturers will find this a uniquely well researched resource, supplemented by materials that enable the cases to be easily integrated into the classroom. Risk managers will be delighted with the case materials made available for the first time with the publication of this book.

Riskwork

This collection of essays deals with the situated management of risk in a wide variety of organizational settings - aviation, mental health, railway project management, energy, toy manufacture, financial services, chemicals regulation, and NGOs. Each chapter connects the analysis of risk studies with critical themes in organization studies more generally based on access to, and observations of, actors in the field. The emphasis in these contributions is upon the variety of ways in which organizational actors, in combination with a range of material technologies and artefacts, such as safety reporting systems, risk maps and key risk indicators, accomplish and make sense of the normal work of managing risk - riskwork. In contrast to a preoccupation with disasters and accidents after the event, the volume as whole is focused on the situationally specific character of routine risk management work. It emerges that this riskwork is highly varied, entangled with material artefacts which represent and construct risks and, importantly, is not confined to formal risk management departments or personnel. Each chapter suggest that the distributed nature of this riskwork lives uneasily with formalized risk management protocols and accountability requirements. In addition, riskwork as an organizational process makes contested issues of identity and values readily visible. These 'back stage/back office' encounters with risk are revealed as being as much emotional as they are rationally calculative. Overall, the collection combines constructivist sensibilities about risk objects with a micro-sociological orientation to the study of organizations.

ERM   Enterprise Risk Management

A wealth of international case studies illustrating current issues and emerging best practices in enterprise risk management Despite enterprise risk management's relative newness as a recognized business discipline, the marketplace is replete with guides and references for ERM practitioners. Yet, until now, few case studies illustrating ERM in action have appeared in the literature. One reason for this is that, until recently, there were many disparate, even conflicting definitions of what, exactly ERM is and, more importantly, how organizations can use it to utmost advantage. With efforts underway, internationally, to mandate ERM and to standardize ERM standards and practices, the need has never been greater for an authoritative resource offering risk management professionals authoritative coverage of the full array of contemporary ERM issues and challenges. Written by two recognized international thought leaders in the field, ERM-Enterprise Risk Management provides that and much more. Packed with international cases studies illustrating ERM best practices applicable across all industry sectors and business models Explores contemporary issues, including quantitative and qualitative measures, as well as potential pitfalls and challenges facing today's enterprise risk managers Includes interviews with leading risk management theorists and practitioners, as well as risk managers from a variety of industries An indispensable working resource for risk management practitioners everywhere and a valuable reference for researchers, providing the latest empirical evidence and an exhaustive bibliography

Organizational Risk Management

Organizational Risk Management: Managing for Uncertainty and Ambiguity serves to extend the discussion of risk established by the rest of this book series toward the roles of uncertainty and ambiguity in organizations. The content of this volume will oftentimes challenge the expectation for and utility of clarity in crisis situations, thereby favoring uncertainty and ambiguity as the necessary conditions to exploit organizational risk. As such, this volume seeks balance among traditional and contemporary perspectives on risk and reliability in organizations. This volume specifically explores opportunities in organizations to apply uncertainty and ambiguity for desired operational outcomes. These opportunities - such as, organizational structures and processes, team meetings, and so on - rely on interpretation, learning, and knowledge among individuals. With contributions from scholars and practitioners, this volume will situate concepts and theories alongside their tangible applications. The ultimate objective of Organizational Risk Management: Managing for Uncertainty and Ambiguity is to promote discussion among practitioners and organizational scholars who venture to understand organizational risk. Setting such a goal is to essentially practice what this volume shall inevitably preach: engage one another in order to proactively monitor and respond to risk. Strengthening ties along the bridge between practice and science will be a welcomed consequence of this volume.

Aviation Risk and Safety Management

The book shows how to build a system with reasonable effort, appropriate to the size and complexity of the specific operator. It also gives inputs on the key aspects and how to effectively operate such a system with the various interfaces.

Aviation Risk and Safety Management

The International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) decision to require aviation organizations to adopt Safety Management Systems poses a major problem especially for small and medium sized aviation companies. The complexity of regulations overstrains the aviation stakeholders who seek to fully advantage from them but have no clear guidance. The aim of the book is to show the implementation of such a new system with pragmatic effort in order to gain a gradation for smaller operators. This approach should illustrate the leeway in order to adapt the processes and to show the interfaces between Corporate Risk Management and Safety Management. The book shows how to build a system with reasonable effort, appropriate to the size and complexity of the specific operator. It also gives inputs on the key aspects and how to effectively operate such a system with the various interfaces. Furthermore, the book highlights the importance of Corporate Risk Management independent of Safety Management Systems based on ICAO.

People Risk Management

People Risk Management provides unique depth to a topic that has garnered intense interest in recent years. Based on the latest thinking in corporate governance, behavioural economics, human resources and operational risk, people risk can be defined as the risk that people do not follow the organization's procedures, practices and/or rules, thus deviating from expected behaviour in a way that could damage the business's performance and reputation. From fraud to bad business decisions, illegal activity to lax corporate governance, people risk - often called conduct risk - presents a growing challenge in today's complex, dispersed business organizations. Framed by corporate events and challenges and including case studies from the LIBOR rate scandal, the BP oil spill, Lehman Brothers, Royal Bank of Scotland and Enron, People Risk Management provides best-practice guidance to managing risks associated with the behaviour of both employees and those outside a company. It offers practical tools, real-world examples, solutions and insights into how to implement an effective people risk management framework within an organization.

Success Stories

This book is a Six Step Approach to show how to develop and implement an Enterprise Risk Management Program within your organization. This book will cover how various public entities are addressing risk identification, risk assessment, risk analysis, implementation of their ERM program, monitoring and evaluating their ERM program. Examples are taken from public entities that are using Enterprise Risk Management in their organizations: Department of Homeland Security, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Education, University of California, State of Washington, Penn State University, British Columbia, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, Washington State Department of Transportation, San Francisco International Airport, MassDevelopment, Dakota County, Minnesota, and Longmont, Colorado. Enterprise Risk Management is able to improve the strategic decision making of an organization by addressing strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities in a way that integrates risk management and the strategic planning process.The ERM process is different because it allows organizations to establish internal and external contexts, assess risks, choose appropriate treatments, and then monitor the treatment to the organization's strategic goals. This allows all stakeholders of an organization to have a clear picture of all the risks that could impact their strategic plan within their organization. By identifying all the risks, the organization now has the ability to quantify critical risks and prioritize their risk treatment. When threats and opportunities are understood across the organization, managers will make better decisions that in turn only improve their department's goals but also positively impact the entire organization. The benefits of implementing an ERM program within your organization include: 1) enhanced decision making 2) increased sustainability 3) reduced volatility 4) improved ability to meet strategic goals 5) increased management accountability 6) breaking silos-seeing risk from a holistic approach 7) develop business continuity. A strong ERM program encourages the buy-in of an organization's internal and external stakeholders by establishing strategies, that protect the organization's reputation and assets. No risk management plan is perfect, but an organization that is prepared to identify, assess, analyze, implement, monitor, and evaluate all risks and is willing to work on improving those risk conditions will benefit from an ERM program
