“I’m here to sell you something you don’t want or think you need, that will cost you time and money, and which may not even help stop bad things from happening. Where do you want it?”
Whether you are a greenfield, brownfield or simply a site on fire, changing key parts of an enterprise risk management framework (ERMF) can be a challenging task. Balancing the short, medium and long term objectives against the change management and cultural hurdles, often results in long lasting compromise to your core ERMF design.
Like any management system that is worth its salt, an ERMF only works if the critical success factors are recognised early, and each of them successfully (enough) addressed in the 3 odd years it generally takes to design, build, embed and embrace a greenfield approach, which is pretty much what ME has done over the last 2-3 years.
This presentation is not designed to tell anyone how to do it. It merely reflects some of the approaches we took, and the lessons we learned on our particular journey to get to the moon…

About the presenter

Sean Coady

Sean says he has met some really smart people and tried to remember a lot of what they said in his 30 year journey across defense, law enforcement, retail, consulting, energy and resources and, most of all, financial services.
Sean also says he has loved every job he has ever had, principally because having managed to convince people he could do the job he then had to learn fast in order to deliver. This has engendered a long time belief in continuous learning and reinvention. And the need to keep finding smart people.
It is also true he says that working in and around risk is a perfect career for those who don’t really know what they want to do, as you can pick and choose your peripheral domains – as in the end everything is a trade-off, or a risk based decision.
For the purposes of his next job interview, Sean does actually have some qualifications, along with the cuts and scrapes from government and corporate life. These include a Law degree (LLB), a Bachelor of Arts (BA) with a major in Information Systems, an ill-fated incomplete engineering degree and has completed the valuable but overrated AICD Graduate course. If you really want to know what he enjoys doing outside work, feel free to ask him!
