Governance and Risk Management

Governance and Risk Management

An effective risk management program helps an organisation to identify and evaluate the full range of risks that it may face.


The most common definition of Governance is “the system by which entities are directed and controlled. It is concerned with structure and processes for decision making, accountability, control, and behaviour at the top of an entity. Governance influences how an organisation’s objectives are set and achieved, how risk is monitored and addressed and how performance is optimised”. Governance is a management system and a set of process, not a single activity and therefore successful implementation of a good governance strategy requires a systematic approach that incorporates strategic planning, risk management and performance management.

Risk Management

Every organisation faces risk, regardless of its size, location, turnover, or sector. Risk management is a systematic process of identifying, assessing, and controlling threats to an organisation. Risks can originate from a variety of sources, including financial uncertainties, legal liabilities, technology issues, strategic management errors, accidents, natural disasters and reputational damage etc.

Why should it be considered?

An effective risk management program helps an organisation to identify and evaluate the full range of risks that it may face. This may include ISO 31000, the standard can help organisations increase the likelihood of achieving objectives, improve the identification of opportunities and threats and effectively allocate and use resources for risk treatment.

This holistic approach to managing risk is sometimes described as enterprise risk management because of its emphasis on anticipating and understanding risk across an organisation.

In addition to a focus on internal and external threats, enterprise risk management (ERM) also considers the opportunities associated with positive risks. In other words, those risks which can be turned from something with the potential to damage an organisation into one that the organisation can take advantage of and gain from e.g. acquisition of a competitor.
