An organisation’s culture is defined by the sum of its behaviours. Trade-offs are often made – for example, what takes priority: profit or customer? Making the right decision at key moments is fundamental to your business.
Culture and behaviour risk is all over the news; it affects multiple industries and sectors and the consequences can be severe. Often, boards fail to identify root causes or take tangible action to address systemic behavioural issues.
Leaders need to integrate enterprise risk management with strategy, improve their risk profile, embed good corporate governance, implement stress testing and embed continuous monitoring instead of focusing on cutting costs and aggressively streamlining operations.
