We all understand Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is not “one size fits all”; each organisation needs to adapt its approach, methodologies, practices and tools of the trade to suit their needs. What does and doesn’t work in applying ERM for one organisation and even industry will therefore be different for others. The key is knowing that valuable learnings can be taken on board from understanding different perspectives.

Webinar Highlights

In this webinar, we will hear from two leaders in the pharmaceutical and construction industries on what works and what does not for ERM. These leaders have designed, implemented and maintained enterprise-wide risk management frameworks and programs. In these interviews we discuss some key questions:

  • How can you embed ERM into a business seamlessly, so it does not add extra work, or appear ad hoc?
  • How can ERM encourage collaboration among divisions and functions?
  • What types of approaches, methods and techniques were used to help individuals and teams make good, risk-informed decisions?
  • What risk processes and/or practises provided the most insights, and value for leaders, perhaps in different parts, of the organisation?
  • What tools or practices did you try and fail with? Looking back, what caused them to fail and what did you learn? Was anything implemented in place of the elements that failed?
  • What successes in implementing ERM can you share that have given you, as an ERM practitioner, recognition and value for the ERM profession?
  • Given the rapid change that businesses are undergoing today, with Industry 4.0 and new technology, the increasing complexity of organisational eco-systems and different stakeholder demands, is ERM still “fit for purpose”?
