Proactive risk management in your company enables you to anticipate unexpected events and to develop strategies in dealing with the outcomes. In this way you can prevent setbacks and safeguard your success on a long-term basis, particularly if you consider your company’s various planning levels in a complex risk management system.
This is how we implement a focussed risk management system
Target and status analysis for the risk management system
How much risk management you really need depends on the individual character of your company. For an exact assessment we take a close look at business conditions, products, services and corporate culture. Therefore, before developing a risk management system, we closely analyse strategic targets and objectives to find out exactly what it is that your company requires.
We carefully examine relevant structures, processes, your product range and external factors to specify the overall requirements of your risk management system. To do so, we work with a specially developed maturity model, which is helpful in showing general and company-specific requirements.
A new or optimised risk management system should build on existing elements in your company. Our maturity-based analysis helps us identify tools, processes and best practices, delivering detailed information about the function of interfaces between organisational units and about soft factors, like information management, transfer of knowledge and risk culture.
In a detailed and clear manner both analyses reveal what weaknesses and potential for development you have and what an ideal risk management should look like for your company.
Implementation and optimisation of risk management processes
To implement adequate risk management tools and procedures, we develop an individually tailored risk management system, based on an exact description of your company, its needs and present structures. This risk management system comprises, among other things, processes, tools, internal and external interfaces, rules of inheritance, reporting structures and habits of communication.
We work closely with you to ensure that our risk management concepts are effectively put into effect. In this way our know-how will seamlessly be integrated into existing procedures, so that risk management tools are, from the start, no mere add-on, but an integral part of your daily work routine.
Of course we also support you in implementing your personal risk management system by
- performing individual training and coaching
- assisting you in internal communication
- taking an active, responsible part in change management.
Throughout this process you remain in control: You decide what we do and how much we work for you.
Staff training and workshop facilitation
Not only do we establish an effective risk management strategy in your company, but we also improve the qualification and skills of your staff: Our special training measures or personal coaching services will help you develop and perfect your repertoire of methods and techniques in risk management.
Naturally we also actively support you in implementing risk management by
● preparing and facilitating risk analyses
● developing application-specific risk models
● performing ad hoc coaching sessions on current issues
Dynamic Strategic Planning
Increasing uncertainty and volatility make effective planning more and more difficult. In the face of digitalisation and disruptive market shifts, static annual or multi-annual plans turn out to be inappropriate in the long run. To stay in the race nonetheless and to reach long-term targets against the odds, alternative strategic planning tools are necessary that take into account both the short-lived nature of the environment and the long-term character of strategic objectives.
Agile process optimisation
It is the daily routines in businesses that determine how flexibly and quickly a company can work and react. Here a systematic process optimisation will make procedures not only faster and more efficient, but also more transparent and, above all, more adaptive to change. If process optimisation is integrated into the company in such a way that the firm becomes a self-learning organisation, it will have cleared a major hurdle on the road to success.
