Adapting to an uncertain environment is fundamental to business success. Today’s business landscape is fueled by the challenges such as digital evolution, stakeholder expectations, climate change, and geopolitical risks. Organizations require a dynamic and flexible risk governance framework to navigate an unpredictable future. Therefore, companies must refresh and strengthen their approach to risk management to better prepare for the next normal. In this article at Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland, Simon Ashby explains how organizations should reinforce risk governance to meet challenges.
Risk Governance: Factors to Consider
Institutions must make risk decisions rapidly and flexibly. They must lay out and execute responses about how to avoid, control, or accept each risk. “Predictive planning is never perfect, so do not try to prepare for every possible scenario; instead, plan to adapt by building as much flexibility as possible into your organizational process,” says Ashby.
Prioritize Your People
Experts believe that business leaders that care about employees’ emotional, physical, financial, and social well-being thrive under challenging conditions. The author suggests you ensure your employees are fully competent and empowered to make decisions and work towards keeping their morale high. This helps them stay motivated to act in the best interests of the organization and stakeholders.
Communicate Risk Governance Initiatives
Risk communication plays a vital role in reducing the real and perceived risks gap. Furthermore, effective communication delivers accurate information. Therefore, you must ensure that risk communication is frequent and two-way. Remember, your staff may have hands-on experience with the effects of a particular risk, and they may have even worked out a solution for its mitigation.
Fortify A Risk Culture
A good risk culture builds strong resilience and allows organizations to smoothly operate. In moments of high uncertainty, risk culture is of exceptional importance. It determines how an organization identifies and manages risks.
