effective management

Is the goal of risk governance taking boards in the wrong direction?

The board is discharging its responsibilities to ensure stakeholders get the performance they should: value creation as well as (and not just) value protection. The board should make sure the management team is effective in running the organization, and that is not done by focusing on a list of harms. Effective governance of an organization is limited if the board focuses on risks.

Risk management: What academics fail to understand

How do you expect a CEO to believe risk management enables success when all the CRO gives him is a list of what could go wrong? He needs help to see what might happen, both good and bad, and what to do about it—in other words, risk management needs to be seen by the CEO as helping him or her get where he or she needs to go. Do you share my view? If so, how do we move both the practitioner and academic community?
