Managing Risk to Stay on the Successful Path

A recent study by Accenture indicates that many large corporations across the globe are looking to improve their risk management capabilities as a result of the recent economic crisis.  The study included a survey of more than 250 companies to determine the current state of risk management practices.  Here is a summary of the findings.

  • About half of the respondents believed that their company was well prepared to face the current level of economic turmoil.
  • More than 85 percent of respondents indicated that their risk management capabilities needed to change.
  • Forty-two percent of respondents pointed to the need for better integration of risk, finance and business data.
  • Eighty percent of respondents say that poor data quality, inefficient reporting and fragmented systems are increasing the cost of risk management.
  • Risk managers spent only 20 percent of their time advising business units.
  • More than 70 percent of respondents have increased or plan to increase spending on risk management.
