Enterprise risk management (ERM) is fairly straight forward to understand. However, implementing ERM is difficult because there is no simple roadmap. ERM and its effective utilization has to be customized to the organization. It is not and cannot be a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
The process of managing risk on an enterprise-wide basis has to be based on the organization’s specific organizational structure, as well as the size, scope, complexity, volume, and delivery channels of the products and services. The more complex the organizations products and services are, the more varied the delivery channels used, the greater the need to ensure risks—individually and in the aggregate—are identified, and effectively understood, measured, monitored, and managed.
No set of policies or procedures, whether you call it enterprise risk management or something else, will be effective if it is not integrated into the culture and governance practices of the organization and included in all facets of the decision-making processes.
