New Foundation Study Points Public Affairs Professionals toward Enterprise Risk Management 12/2/2010


The Public Affairs Council's nonprofit research affiliate, The Foundation for Public Affairs, has released "Managing Risk: Public Affairs and Enterprise Risk Management," a new report designed to help corporate public affairs executives understand, and participate in, enterprise risk management (ERM) processes in their organizations.  

The report is designed to help public affairs practitioners earn a "seat at the table" in critical discussions regarding their respective organizations’ political, operational, economic or governmental risks across the entire company.   

Written by Tom Price, "Managing Risk" uses examples from companies including Union Pacific, Chevron and Deere & Company to demonstrate how public affairs practitioners increasingly participate in their companies' efforts to manage risk at the enterprise level. Director of RIMS' Strategic and Enterprise Risk Practice, Carol Fox, contributed to the report.
