Sonia Jaspal commented on Sonia Jaspal's blog post Preparing Annual Risk Management Strategy

Good point you have raised. Acutally an organization should have a 3-5 yr risk management strategy plan. The number of years the plan should normally be the number of years of the business plan and strategy. Ideally, if an organization has a…"

Sonia Jaspal replied to Ketan Dholakia's discussion Risk Management in India - Cultural or Educational Challenges?

Couple of things which need to be done are:

1) Assess the level of senior management commitment to risk management
2) Understand what are the reasons which senior managers are not committing
3) Plan a strategy to build awareness and brand…"

"I think we need to try and figure out an approach. Maybe we can transfer this discussion on the IRC forum and also have a discussion regarding it in the F2F meeting being planned.

Sonia Jaspal replied to Ketan Dholakia's discussion Risk Management in India - Cultural or Educational Challenges?

I think it is both. Senior management does not perceive benefits from risk management, since they are not aware of the overall aspects of risk management. Hence, the focus is not there in organization culture to build a risk culture.

Sonia Jaspal replied to Mark Sands's discussion The Op Risk Challenges of 2011

Interesting question. My take is that nothing much has been done in 2010 to reduce the above mentioned risks, they have on the other hand increased.

In financial institutions, the reason for the risks are that orgnaization culture is risk…"

Thanks, actually if we can bring risk managers of different fields in one forum and then use their collective strength to lobby for changes, it would be great. It will require a lot of effort and cooperation. Looking forward for others…"

  • I am new to this portal. May be you could lead me through the Introduction session. Thank you.
  • Hi Sonia,
    It is my pleasure too.
    I would love to be a member of a risk community, where there is a substantial contribution, with a clear focus and drive to establish something meaningful & providing value on a sustainable basis. I feel in my opinion, we can look at the following:
    1. Set clear objectives in terms of what this forum is attempting to aim at and provide. I would like to hear from you all on this.
    2. Build a Risk Management consortium. We conduct 6-monthly / Yearly events, where various speakers can be brought in to talk about their experiences and latest development in Risk Management world. We could also associate with Global Bodies like “eGarp / ISACA” to get their contribution and be recognized as a platform, where people can become really serious.
    3. Establish Framework, where people can take the responsibility to contribute.
    4. Develop various Methodologies that can help Risk Members to use that methodology; mindmaps, documents, etc.
    5. Develop a portal, which could have everything that we do with respect to Risks.
    6. Formulate a monthly Newsletter, where we have a provision to write various subjects in and around risks practices from veterans or those who have experience in various Risk Management practices and ready to contribute
    7. Identify Tools that could be looked at helping Indian Organizations automate as well as MNCs having offices in India.
    8. Face-to-face meeting on a quarterly basis to discuss new strategies & growth Plans, where CxO can be invited to make them aware of these evolving systems.

    These are my 2 cents.
  • Sonia,

    What I do is first send a profile of my activities to the client. Thereafter I tell them that I can get a quick Sustainable Audit done. I normally approach this with the following emphasis: Sustainable Facilities, Water, Energy & Atmosphere, Indoor Air Quality, Materials Resources, Waste Management, Health & Safety Issues related to Sick Building Syndrome, Building Related Illnesses, Radon Emission and Exposure to Heavy Metals and the detrimental effects that they can have. This quick audit is carried out over a period of 7-10 days depending on what the client wants to get done. This audit is done for a nominal fee and then I give them the findings. I also would give them an idea of the solutions but they would not be expounded. Hopefully this would lead to a detailed study and a larger full blown consultancy assignment.
  • Sonia,

    I posed this question as I am a Health & Safety Expert with over 10 years experience in Air and Water Issues. I actually wanted to get an idea about what topics get covered therefore the thread.
  • Sonia,

    You are so very right that Risk Management is taking on a greater role. Infact the Risk Management field itself is expanding. Do you cover Health & Safety Issues?
  • Hi Sonia, It’s great to have you here! Feel free to invite new people, participate in discussions, activities and share knowledge. If you've got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
