Execution has become the new watchword in Boardrooms.  As organizations fail to effectively implement strategies, the importance of pic-1-Organizational-DNA-Primer-300x169.jpeg?profile=RESIZE_710xexecution has risen to the forefront. Essentially, the first step in resolving these dysfunctions is to understand how the inherent traits of an organization influence and even determine each individual’s behavior. Organizations must also understand how collective behavior affects company performance.

The idiosyncratic characteristics of an organization can be codifi

Culture is essential today in helping employees and management survive in today’s environment. Survival has become a strong word pic-1-Lean-Culture-Framework-300x200.jpeg?profile=RESIZE_710xtoday. Without culture, everyone in the organization would act or behave differently. No one would be able to anticipate someone else’s behavior, and no one would understand why people behave the way they do. When this happens, the organization’s performance would be very chaotic.

What is culture? Organizational Culture is a learned process and is developed by the organ

Sustainable, superior returns accrue to companies that focus on what they do best. It is that simple. Yet it is incredibly hard to Business-CApabilities-Coherence-300x189.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xinternalize. It is a rare company that focuses on what we do better than anyone in making every operating decision across every business unit and product line. Rarer still is the company that has aligned its differentiating internal capabilities with the right external market position.

These companies are called coherent.

Most companies do not pass the coherence test b

Value-Based Management (VBM) has been regarded traditionally as a tool to help investors evaluate firms, optimize performance management, and maximize shareholder value.

However, there are mixed opinions on whether to utilize VBM as a mandatory investment or management tool.  Many investors, analysts, and executives, to this day, are skeptical of the influence and role of VBM in confronting the dot-com bubble or other financial downturns.  They are even cynical of the efficacy of VBM as a robust

What's Changing in the Approach to IT GRC?

Increasing cyber-hazards have been accompanied by another trend; Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) focused on IT (referred to as IT GRC) is changing. More and more organizations have been turning to a risk-based approach.

  • IT Asset Management, commonly used to inventory servers, computers, and other technology hardware;
  • IT Risk Management, including vulnerability and threat identification an

That functionality is of course important, but what about day-to-day operations and costs? An efficient risk management process starts with identifying and assessing risks a

How GRC Fails to Capture Enterprise Risk

8028226857?profile=originalGovernance functions are designed to manage risks that organizations face in operational and back office silos - financial misstatements, fraud, vendor management, disaster recovery, and other activities are all designed to address a subset of an organization’s risk profile. The concept of Enterprise Risk Management is not to create another function that exists in parallel to these areas, but rather creates a standardized methodology and language to objectively prioritize across functions and le

Risk Appetite Explained
In the face of the many recent failures of financial institutions, following market and asset crises and in the context of mounting regulatory demands from Basel 3, Solvency 2 and Dodd Frank, risk management is a topic high on the executive agenda. In particular, much emphasis has been placed on risk appetite and the role it has to play in an enterprise risk management approach, as part of an overall strategy execution process.
