ERM International was founded to reflect what we have learned and valued from careers as senior risk executives in private sector organisations.
Done well, risk management is at the core of everything an organisation does. It provides a competitive advantage by seeing around corners. It allows the right risks to be taken at the right time in the right way. It enables organisations to dare - to make the big bets for tomorrow knowing they can succeed. At the same time, it protects the core value of today.
Done poorly, risk management is an after-thought compliance exercise focused on filling out spreadsheets and reviewing the same information month after month. The front line is distracted by a barrage of disconnected audits and not enough is done to manage the real risks.
We have lived in both these worlds, and have been at the pointy end of making the transformation from one to the other. We know what it takes, and we know the benefit it delivers.
Unlike the traditional consulting model, we are not career consultants. We do not operate on a pyramid model with an army of junior resources who do the work.
We bring senior risk expertise who have been there, done that. At ERM International, we look to partner with organisations to help them get the job done, and take pride in coaching and mentoring along the way. We make sure the knowledge does not walk out the door when the engagement is complete. We keep overheads low so we can offer maximum value for money.
