“a process that provides confidence that planned objectives will be achieved within an acceptable degree of residual risk.”

Drivers for a Global Standard  Multinational companies operating in many countries around the globe  A need to set priorities and address risks based on global importance  Need a “common look and feel”  Need to demonstrate that effective and reliable standards have been used.  Many existing standards are “down in the weeds” and unsuited to broad application 4 .

 Use of AS/NZS 4360 extended globally over a 13 year period.  It became apparent that the demand of a global standard was high enough to interest ISO 5 .The Search for a Standard  AS/NZS 4360 was originally written to guide the implementation of risk management in Australia and New Zealand. global leaders in the new “enterprise risk management” approach.

the first steps towards the development of a government wide Management Accountability Framework which would be used to assess the performance of departments annually 6 . It was the beginning of a new focus on results. In 2000.The Canadian Context A pivotal point was in 1998. the publication of a report called “Results for Canadians”. and eventually things that could impair their delivery.

A project is required to produce defined outputs and realize specific outcomes in support of a public policy objective.What the Policy requires  That each Department or Agency assess its capacity to manage risks using a specified assessment tool  That (by April of 2011)the risk of every “project” is assessed using a standard risk assessment tool and those projects whose risk level exceed the departmental capacity must come before Treasury Board Secretariat for assessment Project– Is an activity or series of activities that has a beginning and an end. A project is undertaken within specific time. within a clear schedule and resource plan. cost and performance parameters. 10 .

Principle On Which ISO 31000 is based Risk “the effect of uncertainty on objectives” ISO 31000 identifies risk as the uncertainty between an enterprise and its objectives. This approach implies a topdown approach and risk is neither positive nor negative Defined in Guide 73 As defined in Guide 73 11 .

CSA Q850 will be withdrawn 17 . A “guide” that will provide more detail and clarity.How Can ISO 31000 Help ? Risk Practitioners are best placed to make these assessments based on their experience with clients. A number of interested Canadian risk practitioners are working with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) to build a bridge between ISO 31000 and the Canadian condition. and may include examples.

 Where: Activities  Outputs  Outcomes  Often an evaluation framework or a “results based management accountability framework” (RMAF) is a good place to start.The Assessment Phase  It is at this stage where the overall goal or objective of the enterprise is assessed.  An RMAF shows how success is measured and who is accountable 20 .

Integrated Risk Management in the Assessment Phase Integrated Risk Management of negative risks:  Starts with “what can. and does. activity 21 . or proposed. go wrong?”  It looks to similar enterprises and experiences  Seeks specifics for:  Causes (risk drivers)  Remedies (treatment)  Consequences (if/when the risk expresses) This can be done for an existing.
