Task 2


There were several important themes in chapter 1. Here are a few quotes:

“Policy-making and its subsequent implementation is necessary to deal with societal problems.” (Janssen, 2015)

“Policy-making is driven by the need to solve societal problems and should result in interventions to solve these societal problems.” (Janssen, 2015)

“Examples of societal problems are unemployment, pollution, water quality, safety, criminality, well-being, health, and immigration.” (Janssen, 2015)

The author of chapter 1 discusses several developments that influence policy-making. Select one of the developments in chapter 1 and describe how that development can influence policy to solve a specific problem.

You must do the following:

1) Create a new thread. As indicated above, select one of the developments in chapter 1 and describe how that development can influence policy to solve a specific problem.

2) Select AT LEAST 3 other students’ threads and post substantive comments on those threads. Your comments should extend the conversation started with the thread.

ALL original posts and comments must be substantive. (I’m looking for about a paragraph – not just “I agree.”)

Additional Praise for
Implementing Enterprise Risk Management
“Educators the world over seeking to make the management of risk an integral part
of management degrees have had great difficulties in providing their students with
a definitive ERM text for their course. The Standards and associated Handbooks
helped, but until the arrival of Implementing Enterprise Risk Management: Case Studies and Best Practices, there has been no text to enlighten students on the application
of an effective program to manage risk across an enterprise so that objectives are
maximized and threats minimized. Fraser, Simkins, and Narvaez have combined
with a group of contributors that represent the cream of risk practitioners, to provide the reader with a clear and concise journey through the management of risk
within a wide range of organizations and industries. The knowledge, skills, and
experience in the management of risk contained within the covers of this book are
second to none. It will provide a much needed resource to students and practitioners for many years to come and should become a well-used reference on the desk
of every manager of risk.”
—Kevin W. Knight AM, chairman, ISO/TC 262—Risk Management
“The authors—Fraser, Simkins, and Narvaez—have done an invaluable service to
advance the science of enterprise risk management by collecting an extensive number of wonderful case studies that describe innovative risk management practices
in a diverse set of companies around the world. This book should be an extremely
valuable source of knowledge for anyone interested in the emerging and evolving
field of risk management.”
—Robert S. Kaplan, senior fellow, Marvin Bower Professor of Leadership
Development, emeritus, Harvard University
“Lessons learned from case studies and best practices represent an efficient way
to gain practical insights on the implementation of ERM. Implementing Enterprise
Risk Management provides such insights from a robust collection of ERM programs across public companies and private organizations. I commend the editors
and contributors for making a significant contribution to ERM by sharing their
—James Lam, president, James Lam & Associates; director and Risk Oversight
Committee chairman, E? TRADE Financial Corporation;
author, Enterprise Risk Management—From Incentives to Controls
“For those who still think that enterprise risk management is just a fad, the varied
examples of practical value-generating uses contained in this book should dispel
any doubt that the discipline is here to stay! The broad collection of practices is
insightful for students, academics, and executives, as well as seasoned risk management professionals.”
—Carol Fox, ARM, director of Strategic and Enterprise Risk Practice, RIMS
“Managing risk across the enterprise is the new frontier of business management.
Doing so effectively, in my view, will be the single most important differentiating
factor for many enterprises in the twenty-first century. Implementing Enterprise Risk
Management: Case Studies and Best Practices is an innovative and important addition
to the literature and contains a wealth of insight in this critical area. This book’s
integration of theory with hands-on, real-world lessons in managing enterprise
risk provides an opportunity for its readers to gain insight and understanding that
could otherwise be acquired only through many years of hard-earned experience.
I highly recommend this book for use by executives, line managers, risk managers,
and business students alike.”
—Douglas F. Prawitt, professor of Accounting at Brigham Young University,
and Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO)
Executive Board member
“The real beauty of and value in this book is its case study focus and the wide
variety of firms profiled and writers’ perspectives shared. This will provide readers
with a wealth of details and views that will help them chart an ERM journey of their
own that is more likely to fit the specific and typically customized ERM needs of
the firms for whom they toil.”
—Chris Mandel, senior vice president, Strategic Solutions for Sedgwick;
former president of the Risk Management Society
and the 2004 Risk Manager of the Year
“Implementing Enterprise Risk Management looks at many industries through excellent case studies, providing a real-world base for its recommendations and an
important reminder that ERM is valuable in many industries. I highly recommend
this text.”
—Russell Walker, Clinical associate professor, Kellogg School of Management;
author of Winning with Risk Management
“The body of knowledge in Implementing Enterprise Risk Management continues to
develop as business educators and leaders confront a complex and rapidly changing environment. This book provides a valuable resource for academics and practitioners in this dynamic area.”
—Mark L. Frigo, director, Strategic Risk Management Lab,
Kellstadt Graduate School of Business, DePaul University
“The management of enterprise risk is one of the most vexatious problems confronting boards and executives worldwide. This is why this latest book by Fraser,
Simkins, and Narvaez is a much needed and highly refreshing approach to the subject. The editors have managed to assemble an impressive list of contributors who,
through a series of fascinating real-life case studies, adroitly help educate readers
to better understand and deal with the myriad of risks that can assault, seriously
maim, and/or kill an organization. This is a ‘how to’ book written with the ‘risk
management problem solver’ in mind. It provides the link that has been missing
for effectively teaching ERM at the university and executive education levels and
it is an exceptional achievement by true risk management advocates.”
—Dr. Chris Bart, FCPA, founder and lead faculty,
The Directors College of Canada
“The Institute of Risk Management welcomes the publication of this highly practical text which should be of great interest to our students and members around the
world. Implementing Enterprise Risk Management brings together a fine collection of
detailed case studies from organizations of varying sizes and working in different sectors, all seeking to enhance their business performance by managing their
risks more effectively, from the boardroom to the shop floor. This book makes a
valuable contribution to the body of knowledge of what works that will benefit the
development of the risk profession.”
—Carolyn Williams, technical director, Institute of Risk Management

About the Editors
nterprise Risk Management is an evolving discipline focused on a complex and still imperfectly-understood subject. In such a situation, science is
advanced best by collecting data from multiple, independent sites. A rich
set of observations educates the field’s scholars and practitioners and provides the
foundation for them to develop descriptive and normative theories as well as codified best practices about the subject.
The authors—Fraser, Simkins, and Narvaez—have done an invaluable service
to advance the science of enterprise risk management by collecting an extensive
number of wonderful case studies that describe innovative risk management practices in a diverse set of companies around the world. This book should be an
extremely valuable source of knowledge for anyone interested in the emerging
and evolving field of risk management. We should be grateful to the editors and
to each chapter author for expanding the body of knowledge for risk management
professionals and academics.

Businesses, business schools, regulators, and the public are now scrambling to
catch up with the emerging field of enterprise risk management.
—Robert Kaplan (quote from Foreword in Fraser and Simkins, 2010)
Most executives with MBA degrees were not taught ERM. In fact, there are only
a few universities that teach ERM. So some business school graduates are strong
in finance, marketing, and management theory, but they are limited in terms of
critical thinking, business acumen, and risk analysis skills.
—Paul Walker1
Over the past two decades enterprise risk management (ERM) has evolved
from concepts and visions of how risks should be addressed to a methodology that is becoming entrenched in modern management and is now
increasingly expected by those in oversight roles (e.g., governing bodies and
regulators). As Felix Kloman describes in his chapter “A Brief History of Risk Management,” published in Fraser and Simkins (2010), many of the concepts go back
a very long time and many of the so-called newly discovered techniques can be
Implementing Enterprise Risk Management
referenced to the earlier writings and practices described by Kloman. However,
it is only from around the mid-1990s that the concept of giving a name to managing risks in a holistic way across the many operating silos of an enterprise started
to take hold. In the 1990s, terms such as integrated risk management and enterprisewide risk management were also used. Many thought leaders, for example, those
who created ISO 31000,2 believe that the term risk management is all that is needed
to describe good risk management; however, many others believe that the latter
term is often used to describe risk management at the lower levels of the organization and does not necessarily capture the concepts of enterprise-level approaches
to risk. As a result, the term ERM is used throughout this book.
As ERM continues to evolve there is still much discussion and confusion over
exactly what it is and how it should be achieved. It is important to realize that
it is still evolving and may take many more years before it is fully codified and
practiced in a consistent way. In fact, there is a grave danger now of believing
that there is only one way of doing ERM. This is probably a mistake by regulators who have too eagerly seized some of these concepts and are trying to impose
them when the methods are not fully understood, and in some cases the requirements are unlikely to produce the desired results. As Fraser and Simkins (2010)
noted in their first book on ERM: “While regulatory interest can force ERM into
companies, if not d…
