A Case Study on Enterprise Risk Management: Allstate Inc.

In 2000, The Allstate Corporation started on an exciting and uncharted new course: to become an early insurance industry adopter of enterprise risk management (ERM). It has been a complex journey that has helped provide a deeper insight into the company’s underlying risk profile, enhanced the way Allstate manages risk in several significant ways and helped generate actions to better exploit risk opportunities.

The company’s initial effort began some years earlier at the direction of then-CFO, Tom Wilson, who established new capital allocation and valuation models for use in the finance function. Later, as Wilson moved into an operating role, John Carl joined Allstate as CFO and asked his staff what the company’s risk-adjusted returns were. A series of conversations resulted in a decision to explore developing a more quantitatively rigorous approach to measuring risk, similar to what was practiced in the oil and gas industry.

Case Study on Oracle Enterprise Product Lifecycle Management

Study about Oracle Enterprise Product Lifecycle Management

A common problem for businesses today is that product development and commercialization processes are disjointed and inefficient. Crossfunctional collaboration is rare. Different divisions and supply chain partners use their own systems, processes and ways of handling product data, making it hard to share information and collaborate effectively. Any weak points in the value chain will cause problems and delays – and in fast-moving industries, those problems and delays can be fatal for business.

To thrive in these conditions, product businesses need to be efficient, agile and innovative while ensuring quality, traceability and safety. Delays in bringing new products to market have a severe business impact. Failures to comply with industry standards damage reputations and incur expensive fines, rework and write-offs. Time and money spent on innovation is wasted when someone else gets to market first. Keep reading…

Case Study on Enterprise Risk Management: Raytheon

The Challenge: With a history of innovation spanning 90 years, Raytheon provides state-of-theart electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing, effects, command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as a broad range of mission support services. Prior to implementing an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program, Raytheon had insufficient understanding of how risk affected its projects. The culture at Raytheon was reactive and not truly risk-aware.





The focus was on fixing problems and putting out fires, rather than a proactive approach of identifying and preventing problems before they occurred. Raytheon’s brightest thinkers were engaged almost exclusively with their daily tasks of technical scope, rarely able to raise their heads to look at the big picture or gain visibility of the risk landscape…

Link Between Decision-Making and ERM: A Case study

Enterprise risk management is a process, effected by an entity’s board of directors, management and other personnel, applied in a strategy setting and across the enterprise, designed to identify potential events that may affect the entity, and manage risks to be within its risk appetite, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of entity objectives.
Committee of Sponsoring, Organizations of the Treadway, Commission (COSO), Enterprise Risk Management–Integrated Framework (2004).



Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is not a separate, isolated process performed outside of normal business processes. Quite the contrary, ERM, similar to fraud prevention, ethics and internal controls, is integral to an organization’s success. it should be imbedded into and integrated within organizational strategy and incorporated into an organization’s core activities. erM needs to become part of organizational culture.Once the risks are identified and assessed, executive leadership must establish a plan to manage and monitor those risks.
