Risk management is inseparable from the company’s strategic and business processes.

A considered and systematic approach to risk underpins the success of the company.  The board is expected to exercise duties of care, skill and diligence in identifying, assessing and monitoring risks as presented by the management.  Delegates will be given an overview of King III in this regard.

Risk management is the practice of identifying and analysing the risks associated with the business and, where appropriate, taking adequate steps to manage these risks and may imply the elimination or mitigation of particular risks. It may also imply increasing the risks accepted as a measured and calculated move to benefit from a forecast outcome. The costs arising from risks flow not just from the harm from unforeseen events, but also from the failure to capitalise on foreseeable opportunities or situations.

Risk management should be intrusive and should not be viewed only as a reporting process to satisfy governance expectations. The objectivities of risk management should seek to provide interventions that improve the balance between risk and reward within the company.

Risk management is important to companies of all sizes and complexity and is essential for smaller companies with traditionally higher rate of business failure or missed opportunities. These companies may find it easier than their larger counterparts to adopt more aggressive risk management policies.  Time constraints and scarce resources (such as capital) may have a negative effect on these companies’ ability to implement appropriate and effective risk management.
