Uncertainty plays a major role in business decision making, and never more so than in these fast-changing times. Business leaders seek better knowledge and insight on which to base their decisions. As recent events have shown, a comprehensive view of risk is all important. Which is why organizations are now transiting from conventional risk management to an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) approach.
As an enterprise risk management consultant, MBG uses in-depth understanding of strategic, business and operational risks to establish, review and enhance the ERM frameworks of businesses, aligning them with the latest standards such as COSO. Our consultative approach comprises interviews, surveys and risk workshops.
