Led an online discussion this morning with some attendees at the 2nd Enterprise Risk Management online symposium - people from India, the Netherlands and Nigeria - all concerned with how we transform risk culture so leaders are able to take risk-aware decisions.
Everyone seemed in violent agreement that the change that is needed is behavioural, not about new knowledge and that there is too much evidence of 'paper management' as one person put it.
I was surprised though that there seemed very little awareness of the people-related aspects of risk-informed decision-making within the group. I don't know whether to be depressed about that, or encouraged that there's still work for me to do for another few years!!
