Embedded very good set of principles that are the foundations of a successful approach to risk management within any organization. A more detailed description of the PACED principles of risk management is set out in Table 5.1.

Many of the lists of principles set out a description of what risk management activity should be and what it should achieve. It is important to distinguish between what the risk management initiative has been set up to achieve and the nature of the risk management framework that will be put in place. It is suggested that a successful risk management initiative (and framework) will be: proportionate to the level of risk within the organization; aligned with other business activities; • comprehensive, systematic and structured; • embedded within business procedures and protocols; • dynamic, iterative and responsive to change.

If organizations are to get maximum benefit out of their risk management activities, the above principles should be implemented when the risk management initiative is planned and the risk management framework is developed. In many ways, the starting point for all risk management activities is to decide what the organization is seeking to achieve. Table 5.2 sets out the possible purpose or motivation for a risk management initiative as mandatory, assurance, decision making and effective and efficient core processes (MADE2). Core processes represent the activities of the organization and can be strategic, tactical, operational or compliance (STOC) in nature. The objectives for risk management provide the acronym MADE2 and this confirms that outputs from risk management will lead to less disruption to normal efficient operations, a reduction of uncertainty in relation to tactics and improved decisions in relation to evaluation and selection of alternative strategies. In other words, a key part of risk management is improved organizational decision making The resources available for managing risk are finite and so the aim is to achieve an optimum response to risk, prioritized in accordance with an evaluation of the risks. Risk is unavoidable and every organization needs to take action to manage it in a way that it can justify to a level that is acceptable. The appropriate range of responses will depend on the nature, size and complexity of the organization and the risks it faces.
