Enterprise risk management

While global companies are intensifying their focus on enterprise-wide risk management (ERM) in the wake of the financial crisis, most corporate leaders believe their companies have a long way to go in building an effective, risk aware culture.

These are the results of a Zurich-sponsored study, "Risk Management in a Time of Global Uncertainty," conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services.

Over two-thirds of 1,419 business executives surveyed said the topic of risk management has increased in importance over the past three years. Only one in ten said their executive management is “highly effective” in creating a strong risk-management culture.
