Ethical Risk Management Project

Moland memorial tree: AutumnOver the past 10 years, a number of guidelines, frameworks, and standards have emerged, all pressing for a more comprehensive approach to risk management. Arguably, one of the more frequently referenced, but seldom examined, aspects of these documents is the assertion that risk management should align with an organization’s culture and its values.

Collaborating with colleagues at the University of St. Thomas and the Copenhagen Business School, a risk management project has been launched that will provide a closer look at and create a framework for defining the specific characteristics of risk management both at the organizational and individual level. The purpose of this research is to search for a means of linking risk management with organizational values by creating models of the ethical risk manager and the organization that exemplifies this concept.
