Your team needs another team

In my last blog I spoke of your organisation as a market place where you and your team compete for resources. Those resources include money, people and the most valuable resource, people’s time. What you need is another team competing on your behalf. A team of advocates located in the key business units you want to engage with to ensure the valuable resources you need, you get.

In Seth Godin’s book Tribe he describes how he did just that in 1984 at the age of 24 after he…

The Boards of Directors of banks continue to face increasing accountability for ensuring their banks are effectively managing risk. Yet, despite improvements in risk identification, reporting, and strategic risk management initiatives, regulators still question whether banks are truly engaging in the right ways on the top risks that could bring down an individual bank or have a broader systemic impact.

Where did it all go wrong with Risk Management?

I think it all went wrong from the beginning; calling the risk practitioners "risk managers" creating the perception that they manage the risk, including the perception that the CRO is responsible for risk "management", Then the independent risk functions were mostly "born" out of the internal audit function and called the 2nd Line of Defense; creating the perception that it's another level of policemen and that there is something to "defend" against.

Your organisation is a market place.

I have had a few discussions lately about the importance of being crystal clear on why we do what we do. Our purpose. The reason this is so important is beautifully described by Simon Sinek in his book Start with Why: “…people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it”.

The same applies within your organisation. An organisation is in effect a market place. People are trading resources such as budget, people, assets and their time based on their perceptions of the value it…
