We believe ERM can help protect and enhance the value of any size organization. The concepts are not new. They have been practiced by good risk managers for many years. ERM is a natural progression of the risk management discipline to consider interrelationships between risks and ensure that significant risks receive appropriate attention within the organization.
We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Each organization has their own capabilities, goals and focus areas. We help client organizations find a process that works for them. We have a strong reputation for offering pragmatic risk management advice. This pragmatism extends to our ERM-related efforts.
We draw upon over 45 years of experience in helping clients identify, analyze, and protect against risks. But, we understand that no consultant can offer all of the "content" expertise to fully examine all forms of organizational risk. We are process guides. Our expertise helps facilitate and streamline the effort and helps to avoid common roadblocks or stumbling points.
We know that ERM cannot be accomplished through a one-time exercise. To receive the real benefits, a sustainable commitment must be made by the organization. That is why we believe a pragmatic approach to ERM offers the best chance for long-term success. We ensure that knowledge gained in any exercise transfers to the client.
And, we have unique expertise with simple and affordable technologies that help streamline communication, documentation and tracking.
