At many companies, processes for assessing and managing risk are cumbersome and create roadblocks. In addition, the level of risk tolerance among different business functions and IT can vary. Organizations should rethink their risk management processes to remove risk decision bottlenecks, accelerate delivery, and ensure that risks are balanced against benefits. Risk processes should be redesigned to support business partners’ need for agility and to empower employees to facilitate business risk decisions.
