Efficiently finding the right risk software selection the first time
Company recognized its need for a robust risk management information system to support the maturity of its risk programs and processes, but it didn’t know where to start. This led them to engage with SDS who helped them understand their unique business requirements and ultimately find the right software the first time.
Better, risk-informed decisions with a risk appetite revamp
It was clear to company leadership that its existing risk appetite statements were inadequate, but after working with SDS, management has the metrics, limits, and thresholds directly tied to strategy and operations to make better, risk-informed decisions day-in and day-out.
Overcoming roadblocks in a dynamic environment
Company’s ERM program was unwieldy and inadequate for meeting the needs of the dynamic environment, but with bi-weekly ERM Advisory calls with SDS, the CRO and supporting ERM personnel are now able to work agilely around roadblocks, deliver value faster, and play a more direct role in the decision-making process.
How this company transformed ERM dynamics and efficiency
The stand-alone ERM program at company was barely functioning with no connection to business metrics, processes, or strategic objectives. After SDS evaluated the program, company is on the path to integrate ERM into its day-to-day business, integrating optimal resource planning and allocation, providing leadership with actionable takeaways from risk conversations, and much more.
