These risks should be identified, mitigation measures outlined and a risk management plan put in place.  Risk management is central to business strategic management.4 Group 3 class presentation 2012/06/01
  5. 5. Definition of risk:  Risk is the probability that a hazard will turn into disaster (R.A.J. Roberts, 2010: 179).  Risk is the probability or threat of damage, injury, liability, loss or other negative occurrence that is caused by external or internal vulnerabilities and that may be neutralized through preemptive actions.5 Group 3 class presentation 2012/06/01
  6. 6. Examples of risk:  Financial risks like change in interest rates, default risks;  Food security risks like drought, floods, epidemic pest and disease outbreaks;  Health risks e.g. epidemic disease outbreak; Risks reduce the chances of success of any business and therefore mitigation measures are of paramount importance (R.A.J. Roberts, 2010:180)6 Group 3 class presentation 2012/06/01
  7. 7. Risk management: • Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities. • Risks can come from uncertainty in financial markets, project failures, legal liabilities, credit risk, accidents, natural causes and disaster as well as deliberate attack from an adversary, or events of uncertain or unpredictable root cause.7 Group 3 class presentation 2012/06/01
  8. 8. Risk management continued: • Several risk management standards have been developed including the Project Management Institute, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, actuarial societies, and ISO standards. • Methods, definitions and goals vary widely according to whether the risk management method is in the context of project management, security, engineering, industrial processes, financial portfolios, actuarial assessments, or public health and safety.8 Group 3 class presentation 2012/06/01
  9. 9. The need for risk management by organizations:  Diversification, e.g. launch a new product or entry to new markets. Competitors following you into these markets, or breakthroughs in technology which make your product redundant, are two risks to consider in such cases.  Risk management helps you to identify and address the risks facing your business.9 Group 3 class presentation 2012/06/01

  13. 13.

  14. 14. Strategies of managing risks continued:  Transferring risks – insurance;  Routine medical examination/avoiding exposure – health risks;  By avoiding certain activities e.g. MFIs only do lending and avoid taking deposits, to avoid deposit risks;  Doing nothing e.g. rural farmers, just endure drought and plan to plant in the next season14 Group 3 class presentation 2012/06/01
