    Thank you Chris for calling my attention to this buzz. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with this kind of risks, but with the ones which have to do with personal risks, like possibles injuries on working environment. On this matter, I have seen many evaluations/action plans which use to fail always due to the human factor. If common sense is not added, people always find a way to make it wrong. I suppose in accounting it happens the same.
    Sorry for not being more helpful this time.

    #4 Indeed there is a hierarchy of risk: Strategic - tactical - operational levels. Scalability of consequence/impact can be implemented to manage appropriately. - e.g. the risk assessment matrix for large capital projects would contain escalated dimensions as opposed to those used to assess and measure risk for operations.

    Risk is always a perception of a lot of gathered data, available resources and the entities, people and personnel that may expose the risk. Risk from the C-Suite is quite different than the risk exposure at the operational level. The variables expand exponentially. It is difficult to express risk management unless we label the risk and then talk, so my general statements are very broad.

    When we centralize the risk plan it is difficult to express every variable within the operational transaction. This means that gray areas will always exist and produces the need for interpretation at the same level. In other words people justify their choices through the gray area and it is based on how it will benefit their operational goals locally.

    Your post describes a very large organization and with humility i am expressing it at the small business level. The operational transaction level is something i am close to everyday on just about all aspects. SO i have the ability to train and OJT with front line staff about measuring risk and helping them may good decisions when entering a transaction. Mainly when the transaction is different than previous ones and may need a higher level of authority to walk them through. I am sure this is not practical from a leader's perspective three countries away.

    Great buzz @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA. In our turbulent times minimizing risk may be the overriding concern for managers. SOme risks are external and others are internal. Some risks are frequent and others are rare. I like the way you addressed risk. One great point is having a risk owner.
    In my buzz of today "not to defend leaders" I covered some of the hidden risks within an organization. Some of these risks need some tolerance because they can't be expected. I wonder how you would deal with them?

    Risk assessment is important when planning events. I am wondering how many event planners and companies have a formal risk assessment process when planning events. Do you engage in this process for all events or just large foreign events? How do you ensure compliance?

    #4 Fully concur @Harvey Lloyd. 2nd line compliance/ assurance internal reviews I've designed are more collaborative/collegial in nature and execution - where did we go wrong previously ? what lessons can we learn? where can we improve processes? Idea being to get the shop in good order before audit (3rd line) visit. Demonstrtaes a lot of value in practice.

    https://goo.gl/7zDXjF The speed of trust book was an interesting read. I introduce this book only as a balance to your post. Internal review processes can become mechanical and somewhat punitive in outcomes. This is how i have experienced most of these processes.

    But i see and understand the need for such processes. Especially an organization that has many levels and the need to extend authority throughout the layers with monitoring and efficiency. I would humbly suggest that these processes should include a framework of continuous improvement and efficacy.

    We have many processes that we do only because that what was done last year and the year before etc.. Sometimes we need to look at understand the goals of our policies and make sure the resources we are utilizing to perform these are getting the intended results. All to often these policies are seen as drag nets to catch evil doers. I don't believe they were written for that purpose but as we get down through the levels managers tend to expend the resources and a fundamental need to show findings is tied to how well they performed the process.

    A police officer that does 4 hours of speed monitoring activities and comes back having written no tickets is thought to have been at the donut shop all day.

    All processes should build trust and demonstrate the purpose or goal of the organization.

    Management should realize that there are certain areas that should be under tight control and others much less so. For example, control on the creative staff is not welcome. However; it is another story when it comes to financial control. In today's business this is a hugely important issues for organizations may control their expenditures, but not their revenue. By controlling costs they also minimize risk. Great buzz @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA

    @Qamar Ali Khan Sir hope you might have read articles posted on LinkedIn by an influencer "Mohamed El-Erian". And also like him there are other Muslims listed in influencers list. Maybe you have missed something or something skipped under your eyes or I am unable to rule out your focus. Surely I couldn't get the point .. there are so many others (to pin point specifically "Muslims" (kept an observation who interact in various places within LinkedIn). Frankly I am not supporting any such. Also once shared with East asians in 1990 and later with many and till day I follow rule one "I have not mastered everything but at maximum I follow some principles and morals. Sincerely follow all testaments prioritizing the last one. By chance for reasons have to fake it to make it (no matter whatever bountiful riches it might give in return), I step back or move away. What's in there for me is destined by the only Omni present". (Last year Ramadhan tried to reach you via LinkedIn, seems I am listed in your blocked members).

    #208 Well this anti-muslim sentiment is really getting to me. I went to schools in England that had people from all over the world attending them. One of my greatest friends was a girl called Shalahleh Qadir. Her wit, intelligence and knowledge of Islam was truly inspiring. It really gets my goat when people who have not even bothered to read the Koran say that it promotes violence and says that Jesus Christ was just a prophet. I finally got my hands on my own copy of the Koran last year and opened it at random. I got the book of Maryam which is just beautiful.

    @Qamar Ali Khan - this is the only post that is left on Qurban's profile : -

    The problem with third world countries like us are that theses are not only devoid of material resources but also lack moral and intellectual values. So if a flood ravages the communities and the leaders are compelled by the pressure of public opinion to react to it, they say thanks heavens only a hundered or so people have died and we will take care of them. They can't realize that the death of a single person for a family is like the death of the whole world to them.The developed world or philanthropists could offer money to such communities to mitigate the hardship but to instil moral values and respect for human life in to their mindset is beyond their mandate and would be mis construed...
