We strongly believe that, to make risk registers the root of good governance, the risks needs to be straightforward to understand and easy to access at any time. Our online risk registers can be reviewed and updated in real time to support decision making discussions.
A number of clients now set their meeting agendas by linking each agenda item to a relevant section of the risk register. Those risks can be reviewed online and discussed at the relevant part of the meeting. Following a material discussion or decision, the risks can be updated in the meeting. By the end of the meeting the client can see how the decisions taken have impacted the risk register, providing a real time audit trail of how the client is managing the risk.
