Enterprise Risk Management Systems should be Effective

Every organisation has a set of business objectives. There are always risks and evolving situations present that could prejudice the meeting of these business objectives and may even prejudice the very existence of the organisation itself. To succeed in business, one has to manage its business risks and situations.

Top C-class management (i.e. CEO, COO, CFO, etc) do look out for presence of risks and changing of situations. But because of their busy work schedule heavy responsibilities, they are not able to always identify and prevent risks of mishaps from occurring. Most employees even in senior and middle management do not place risk management high on their lists of KPIs. Accordingly, the number of process failures increased, as organisations get leaner. These manifest themselves as fire-fighting episodes that result in business disruptions, lower product quality and productivity, and in some cases even causing the demise of the organisation.


Successful organisations succeed because they are have a risk management culture and that they place risk management as integral to their business processes throughout the organisation. This means internalizing a system – a management system that regulates risk management practices by all employees at all business functions. This is Enterprise Risk Management (“ERM”). This takes the burden of risk oversight from the top C-class management and spread it over to all heads of departments who are directly involved with the risks.

Services of BCP Consultants in the Event of Crisis

CEOs and senior managers are aware that things under their responsibility can suddenly go wrong, and that they are required to restore them back to normal. In this modern days, any business disruption can be very costly and customers and stake-holders generally are not sympathetic when one occurs.  It is now a requirement for companies to ensure that there is a plan available that will guide them to respond to any operational breakdown.

Business continuity requires first seeking understanding of what key business drivers are. Then to explore possible situations that could arise to affect them to the point where a total disruption to the organisation occur. This means risk identifications, risk mitigations, planning for restoration of critical business functions, and certainly also crisis management.


A BCP Consultant generally formulates business continuity plans (i.e. BC Plans). However, the BCP Consultant must also be capable of extending BC Plans into providing organisations with the proper bases and training in providing incident response and crisis management.  Paper plans alone cannot respond to the crisis, only crisis management team can – and the team has to be trained.

The ISO 22301-2012 provides the international standards on the requirements of business continuity management. This ISO 22301 standards has superseded many national standards such as SSS540:2008 and BS25999-1/2.

What is a crisis?crisis-management

 A crisis is any situation which is posing a threat to harm the people or the property, or interrupt the business operations seriously and damage the reputation of the company. The bottom line is that a situation of crisis brings about a negative impact on the business.

Every business enterprise is vulnerable to crisis. If your business organization is not prepared for the crisis, it is likely to cause more damage. Any crisis management related business plan fails only if it unable to address the communications issues related to the disaster or crisis response.

Therefore, adequate internal as well as external Crisis Communications is required in every organization. The basic key steps of Crisis Communications are not at all difficult. But you need to devise these steps in advance so as to minimize the impact of the damage on the business concern.

So, you should follow the steps towards crisis communication, such as, anticipate crisis, identify your crisis management communications team, establish the monitoring systems, identify and know the needs of your stakeholders, develop the holding statements, assess the crisis situation, finalize the key messages, and conduct a post- crisis analysis.

The importance of Internal Control in the organization

Business operations are, in most cases, complex. They are carried out by employees of business-consultancy-305x215different levels, who may be well trained or experienced, or who may be new staff who may not yet be proficient in handling them. Knowledge is not the only concern because there could be some employees who might conduct unscrupulous actions that may be harmful to the organization.

It is virtually impractical to expect business managers to supervise all daily work carried in operations. So mistakes can be made that could result in significant ramifications to the objectives of the organizations. Hence, there should be management systems put in place that could help trigger off alarms when things go wrong so that remedial actions can be taken to avoid damage and losses. Enterprise Risk Management (“ERM”) is the umbrella management system that could highlight potential risk and vulnerabilities in an operating platform. When such are identified, risk management actions and Internal Controls can be put in place.

Using JaBA’s methodologies, business operations are made resilient against mistakes and misdoings meeting the stringent requirements of listing requirements and corporate governance.

Corporate Governance is Essential for Business Efficiency, Effectiveness and Productivity!

Corporate Governance is a system by which a company controls and directs the organisation. It requires the establishment of optimal method and processes for the organisation to ensure sufficiency of vigilance against omissions, errors and fraud, and to manage these by implementing of effective controls and checks. Corporate Governance applied at two levels: board governance and business governance.

Essentially, corporate governance is important to its stakeholders, primarily its shareholders and key customers. It involves fair balancing of these stakeholders’ interests and ensuring transparency in dealings by both the supervisory board and the operational managers. Most countries publish their respective sets of rules of corporate governance for their business communities and non-profit. All public-listed companies are required, additionally, to adhere to their respective stock exchange’s listing rules.


Of primary concerns in corporate governance are: effective board member composition and practices, presence of committees (e.g. audit committee, remuneration committee, nominating committee, risk committee), adoption of fair and robust business practices, transparency to shareholders, internal audit, and a sound practice of risk management and internal controls. Sustainability is another growing key concern, and the board is incumbent to ensure that the organization’s operations is sustainable to both itself, the society and ecology.

Procedures for working between the board and operational management, i.e. proper bilateral flow of information, directions for control and supervision serving as a system of checks and balances for any corporately governed organizations. It is a transparent way in which an organization is governed so as to completely satisfy the stakeholders. It also helps in determining the most effective strategies for decision making.
