"Mastering 21st Century Enterprise Risk Management" takes a holistic approach

GOLD COAST, Australia, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Gregory Carroll, an enterprise risk management systems expert whose has consulted over 30+ years some of the world's largest companies and highest-security organisations, has a new book on risk management available from AmazonMastering 21st Century Enterprise Risk Management treats the subject not as merely a way to sidestep problems, but rather a way to add value. A free excerpt of the book is available for download at fasttrack365.com/ERM-book.

Risk management has traditionally focused on the downside—the "what if"—of risk, Carroll says. What if I get audited; will my documentation be in order? What if someone gets hurt? Risk has also traditionally been as siloed as many organizations, each functional area requiring its own unique parameters without any interaction. Different areas may even use different software.

"Modern risk management philosophy goes beyond 'staying out of trouble.' It incorporates the upside of risk—the people and process efficiencies that result when a holistic risk management framework is integrated into all aspects of the business and aligned to specific business objectives," Carroll says. "Investing in risk management, as with all other investments, must produce a return."

Mastering 21st Century Enterprise Risk Management explains why many risk management systems are broken and what needs to be done to fix them. It also explains the pitfalls to avoid when deploying an ERM system.

Carroll draws on his 30 years of experience as a business owner serving some of the largest organisations in Australia, both in the government and the private sector. But he also stays on top of current research into the subject. He notes a KPMG study published this year whose name sums up the situation: "Expectations of Risk Management Outpacing Capabilities - It's Time For Action."

Done properly, however, risk management can be a powerful tool for innovation, agility and growth. The reason few people harness this power is that they are focusing instead on administrating the process.

Carroll addresses the widespread disillusionment with risk management at C-Level particularly with enterprise risk management. With 40% of software implementation projects classed as having failed and the track record of QMS and ERM to-date, most organisations are behind the 8 ball before they start. He also explains the secrets to successfully implementing management systems in large organisations and how to achieve cultural change vital for success. Carroll then looks forward at future of risk management in the 21st century, and how it must produce a return of investment.

Mastering 21st century risk management goes beyond keeping your company on good terms with regulators. "Effective enterprise risk management takes a holistic approach to identifying, assessing and mitigating risk throughout the organization and is based on business objectives," Carroll says.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
