ERM Council

The Council on the Practical Conduct of Enterprise Risk Management 

The CCRO is acting as host for a series of live webinar discussions among our most experienced CCRO members, especially those with a mandate of some kind to implement ERM.  This group, known as the ERM Council for short, is holding regular 1hr discussions on the second Friday of each month.

Currently with sixteen CROs involved, and growing in popularity - this council is a valuable source for our members to share ideas and hear about the challenges others have with ERM and how they have tried to tackle them.

We believe that these discussions will yield unique insights into the way forward for effective ERM implementation, providing us with the sort of cutting-edge risk topic & material that the CCRO is known for.
In its first two foundational conference calls, the group decided to focus the series of future webinars each on one of these topics which many wish to hear more about from each other:

1. Demonstrating the value-add of ERM to the company – what has worked? what not? 2. Understanding emerging risks & integrating them into ERM.
3. Your board’s wants & needs from ERM; clarify. 4. Measuring risk appetite; process & measures.
5. The most effective process for risk assessment & consolidation; from Board to Business Unit to Asset-level; Keeping it ‘real’ and ‘fresh’. 6. The capital allocation process and ERM.
7. Operations risks; measurement, management and ERM. 8. ERM and strategic planning; special emphasis on emerging risks?
9. Compare & contrast; organizations for ERM. 10. Other
