Enterprise Risk Management

Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.

     Warren Buffett


Delta Partners defines Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) as:

  1. A risk-based approach to managing an enterprise or organization.
  2. An integration of strategic planning, process management, and internal control.
  3. A strategy for managed risk response.
  4. A prerequisite for effective preventative actions.
  5. A systematic process for risk identification, prioritization and mitigation.

Do you know where the ticking time bombs are that could impact your organization?

By having a systematic approach to analyzing risk, you can:

  • Prioritize the threats that will have the greatest impact on your organization.
  • Predefine reaction strategies.
  • Track issues over time.

Have you planned for reduced staff, decreased budget, and operational upheaval?

The structured analysis of future states can allow you to:

  • Anticipate the impact on your stakeholders.
  • Forecast issues that will impact the effectiveness of the strategic planning process.
  • Appropriately assign resources to minimize organizational disruption.

Enterprise Risk Management Framework

Organizations manage risks every day - risk management should not be a once a month or once a year activity.  An integrated approach to risk management builds on existing practices and provides you with tools to enhance planning and decision-making processes.

Your ERM Framework will ensure that:

  • The corporate context, criteria and practices for managing key risks are defined.
  • All risk management decisions comply with legal requirments and ethical policy, and that all activities are conducted with the view of maintaining your organization's reputation.
  • All risks undertaken are related to the achievement of strategic outcomes. 
  • Risk management processes are documented and fully integrated with major strategic and operational processes.
  • Risk management roles, responsibilities and authorities are assigned.
  • Risk identification and assessment is conducted on a continuing basis and is integrated with existing long-term strategic business planning, as well as day-to-day operational decision-making.
  • A risk escalation approach is used to ensure that timely decisions related to risk response are made at an appropriate level of the organization. 
  • The interests and perceptions of clients, the public, and other stakeholders are fundamental considerations in risk management.
  • Risk management results are measured and monitored.
  • Risk management experience and best practices are shared across the organization.
