Overcome ERM implementation challenges by taking cues from leading global organizations Implementing Enterprise Risk Management is a practical guide to establishing an effective ERM system by applying best practices at a granular level. Case studies of leading organizations including Mars, Statoil, LEGO, British Columbia Lottery Corporation, and Astro illustrate the real-world implementation of ERM on a macro level, while also addressing how ERM informs the response to specific incidents. Readers will learn how top companies are effectively constructing ERM systems to positively drive financial growth and manage operational and outside risk factors. By addressing the challenges of adopting ERM in large organizations with different functioning silos and well-established processes, this guide provides expert insight into fitting the new framework into cultures resistant to change. Enterprise risk management covers accidental losses as well as financial, strategic, operational, and other risks. Recent economic and financial market volatility has fueled a heightened interest in ERM, and regulators and investors have begun to scrutinize companies' risk-management policies and procedures. Implementing Enterprise Risk Management provides clear, demonstrative instruction on establishing a strong, effective system. Readers will learn to: Put the right people in the right places to build a strong ERM framework Establish an ERM system in the face of cultural, logistical, and historical challenges Create a common language and reporting system for communicating key risk indicators Create a risk-aware culture without discouraging beneficial risk-taking behaviors ERM is a complex endeavor, requiring expert planning, organization, and leadership, with the goal of steering a company's activities in a direction that minimizes the effects of risk on financial value and performance. Corporate boards are increasingly required to review and report on the adequacy of ERM in the organizations they administer, and Implementing Enterprise Risk Management offers operative guidance for creating a program that will pass muster.

"Das Buch bietet eine exzellente Ergänzung zu den beiden Büchern von Kaplan und Norton. Es werden die Details und Prozesse erklärt, welche Projektmanager beachten sollten, wenn sie die Mess- und Managementsysteme für die Balanced Scorecard in ihre Organisation einführen." Aus dem Vorwort von Robert S. Kaplan Balanced Scorecard ist das effektivste und verbreitetste Managementsystem, um auf der Basis von Finanzkennzahlen strategische Entscheidungen zu treffen. Dieses bewährte Kennzahlen-System ermöglicht die Messung der Performance und die Steuerung des Unternehmens. Sehr praxisorientiert und topaktuell wird von Paul Niven diese ausgereifte Methode präsentiert. Der Autor zeigt Schritt für Schritt, wie Balanced Scorecard eingeführt und in das bestehende Managementsystem implementiert wird: Wie erfasse ich ideelle Werte, wie intellektuelles Kapital oder Kundenbeziehungen? Wie verbinde ich aktuelle Finanzzahlen mit zukünftigem Wachstumspotenzial? Und wie nutze ich Balanced Scorecard, um die Unternehmensorganisation neu auszurichten? Einen Schwerpunkt des Buches bildet das Updating, das heißt die kontinuierliche Aktualisierung und Verbesserung der Balanced Scorecard. Da sich Unternehmen und Märkte dynamisch entwickeln, ist diese niemals abgeschlossen. Ständig müssen die Kennzahlen überprüft, die Ziele neu definiert beziehungsweise die Strategie angepasst werden. Das Buch zeigt auch, wie diese Prozesse zur bestmöglichen Nutzung von Balanced Scorecard automatisiert werden können.
