Podcast: Is ERM a Failure?

WillisWire Podcasts

During the recent financial turmoil many of the worst-affected companies had developed what they believed were robust and sophisticated ERM capabilities, so why were they not prepared to cope with the crisis?

In the latest podcast from WillisWire, I spoke to Geoff Taylor and Tom Teixeira from Willis discuss the key hallmarks of a successful ERM programme and what challenges organisations typically face. Both Tom and Geoff have established backgrounds in corporate risk management working for large blue-chip companies helping to integrate and embed ERM programmes.

Key highlights from the podcast include:

  • Can ERM really challenge the board and influence a charismatic CEO?
  • Does ERM really allow risk to be integrated into business strategy or does it just add more items to the risk register?
  • Is ERM really the vehicle that will change organisational behaviours and that will enable managers of all levels and disciplines to contribute to the risk conversation?
