Risk management team beliefs & insights

Corporate culture, compliance and performance risk management

What we believe that inspires risk management

Our risk management team have over 50 years experience in risk management, compliance and leading teams. In this time we have developed an insight which we are happy to share with our customers.

Risk management, compliance and performance management has traditionally assumed that people’s behaviour can be predetermined. That implementation evidence is visible and compliance to requirements can be the subject of audit. This evidence provides little insight into how people are really behaving, what is invisible. Yet it is this forward looking behaviour of business culture that impacts on risk to future compliance and performance management.

Investigations into performance failures reveal that the corporate culture causing the systemic failure were largely invisible to management. Financial sector, Stafford Hospital, Deep Water Horizon, Grenfell Tower being examples. As a result, once poor performance becomes visible it is too late and only the consequences can be subsequently managed. These could include loss of brand, fines, profitability, compliance, conduct risk and the delivery of other business outcomes affected.

Current risk, due diligence and audit methods are only picking up on what is easily visible which is a backward looking view of risk, compliance and performance management. It is like driving a car by looking in the rear view mirror. A forward looking view is achieved by measuring business culture as the ‘business as normal’ and understanding the risk this poses to business outcomes. This is like driving a car by looking through the windscreen not just looking in the rear view mirror.
