Strategic Risk Management is designed to help internal auditors, management teams, and boards assess and manage an enterprise's strategic risk and develop a workable plan with incremental steps for developing risk management capabilities and processes within an organization. This primer focuses on the latest developments in the area of strategic risk management, which is a necessary foundation and component for effective Enterprise Risk Management (ERM); Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC); and overall risk management.

Strategic Risk Management is designed to be an easy-to-use source of information and tools on strategic risk management for directors and executives. The content in the primer is presented in a series of articles, short narratives, tools, and diagnostics—grouped into chapters by topic—to provide quick readings in short time periods. While the primer is structured in chapters that begin with the definition of strategic risk management and then progresses through the various frameworks, tools, and diagnostics, the chapters and articles can also be read individually on a stand-alone basis.


The primer begins with a chapter on linking risk management with strategy development, performance measurement systems, and balanced scorecards. This chapter provides an overview on where and how to incorporate risk management into strategic planning and strategy execution processes. The primer also includes a chapter that describes how to conduct a strategic risk assessment using the tools in the primer which serves as a foundation for effective ERM, GRC, and risk management.
