While Enterprise Risk Management Maturity (ERM) Models can be used to identify an organization’s current ERM capabilities across multiple dimensions, these insights are only useful if capability maturity levels are linked to value generation for the organization. This exploration is essential, as not all investments generate value. In fact, while higher levels of ERM capability maturity can yield significant value toward increasing the opportunity for an organization to achieve its strategic objectives, low levels of maturity are likely contributors of negativevalue. For the many organizations that get stuck in these low levels of ERM maturity, a decision needs to be made: embrace the actions needed to increase maturity capability, or consider shutting down the program.
Guidehouse's David Fisher further examines the link between ERM maturity and value creation in this article published by the Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP).
