Risk Awareness Week (RAW) 2023: Articulating Risk Appetite – Tips and Traps (53 minutes)

In their workshop, Diana Del Bel Belluz and Craig Mitchell offer practical approaches and real-world case studies to articulate risk appetite, showcasing its impact on strategic alignment and decision-making efficiency. James Lam’s definition of risk appetite as the willingness to accept specific types and levels of risk to achieve strategic objectives underscores its crucial role in enterprise risk management. Despite varied opinions on its value, understanding risk appetite is pivotal for aligning risk-taking with an organization’s values. Executives encounter challenges in decision-making when faced with alternatives that present varying risks and rewards, particularly with competing objectives. Clarifying risk appetite aids in elucidating trade-offs, ensuring decisions are in line with organizational strategy and values. An absence of a clear risk appetite can lead to inconsistent decision-making, compromising both effectiveness and efficiency.
