4 Ts of a Risk Management Strategy

Dec 11, 2018

A risk management strategy is designed to help businesses develop a structured and coherent approach to identify, assess, and manage risks. It can be developed and implemented by projects and organizations irrespective of their scale of operations. Considering that risk is a prevalent element in a supply chain, it is imperative for modern organizations to chart out appropriate strategies to resist or mitigate such occurrences. to Prudent supply chain professionals must be equipped with the right risk management strategy in order to avoid supply chain complexities. The skill required to build an ideal risk management strategy is not developed overnight: it is gradually learned through exposure to different circumstances and issues. In this blog, SpendEdge’s industry experts have curated ‘4Ts’ of choosing an effective risk management strategy for business:

Treat the risk

Several complacencies and negative issue related to the supply chain can leave a company more exposed to threats. Though an effective risk management strategy can reduce such risks to an acceptable level by building control mechanisms into relationships or operational activities. However, it is critical that the risk management strategy adopted is proportionate to the risk and are cost effective. Having a service level agreement is a great mechanism to ensure that the supplier’s performance is kept in check. Furthermore, this can also help identify areas that require corrective measures.request proposal

Transfer the risk

All the risk that a company may encounter cannot always be mitigated completely. But is possible to transfer some risk to another body or organization through insurance, contractual arrangements, outsourcing or partnerships. The catch here is that some risks such as the risk to reputation cannot be transferred.

Tolerate the risk

As mentioned earlier, risks cannot be fully mitigated. Eventually, all risks have to be accepted as they form part of, or are inherent in, the activity under scrutiny. In the case of such instances, it is vital for organizations to tread carefully. There are some risks which for which the management has no control over and some for which any management actions would be prohibitive in terms of resources. While formulating a risk management strategy, these risks must be identified, clearly understood and acknowledged, and a contingency plan established for dealing with the effects that will arise if the risk is realized.

Terminate the risk

In some rare cases, it is possible that a particular risk can neither be controlled nor be transferred to another entity. In this case, the only way out is to eliminate the risk by putting an end to all or part of a particular activity. The management must be highly cautious while formulating their risk management strategy here. Though an identified risk may be too much to absorb, companies must not stifle innovation.
