Workshop on ‘Enterprise Risk Management’

Centre for Corporate Governance (CCG) of Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) in association with National Foundation for Corporate Governance (NFCG) is organizing a One-day workshop on ‘Enterprise Risk Management’ on 1st September 2018 at IIM Calcutta campus.

Background: Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is an approach whereby all categories of risk across each business unit and geography are aggregated at the enterprise level and treated holistically, while at the same time recognizing the need to maintain levels of granularity. One of the challenges organizations face is to define ERM in a way that supports a structured cost benefit analysis and implementation planning. The broad goals of an ERM programme would be (a) enable the board and top management to understand how the risks for which they are ultimately responsible, are being managed on regular basis in the organization; (b) aggregate significant risk information up through the firm to create an enterprise-wide view of the firm’s risk profile and its internal control systems; and (c) equip business and corporate units with the capabilities to proactively identify, assess and report on the occurrence and control of significant financial and non-financial risks at any time.


The workshop is designed to sensitize participants on the need for an efficient ERM framework and to demonstrate that the benefits of an effective ERM far outweigh costs associated with it.
Improved understanding of risk across all units of a firm should allow it to better meet customer needs by tailoring products without incurring excessive risks. Recent changes in financial reporting and banking regulations have further highlighted the need for an ERM practice in every business decisions.
