What is Strategic Risk?

Strategic risk management is a process of identifying, assessing and managing the risk in the organization's external environment, marketplace and business strategy. It involves evaluating a wide array of marketplace events that affect the strategy and its execution and impacts the company's value. 

Mostly, management focuses disproportionately on financial risks because they are readily identifiable, simple to quantify and amenable to mitigation.  However, financial risk comprises only 10% of a business's risk profile.  Strategic risk is attributed to nearly 60% of all risk factors and the single largest force in enterprise value erosion.  The remaining 30% is operational marketplace risk.

Nowigence categorizes strategic risk elements into 12 distinct classifications, under the three main headings:

Marketplace Risk Factors- Demand, Competitive, Supply Chain, Innovation, Legal/Regulatory, and M&A. 

Management Related Risk Factors- Reputational, Leadership, and Shareholder.

Business Continuity Risk Factors- Sociopolitical, Safety, and Cybersecurity.  


How Nowigence Helps

Strategic Risk Management (SRM) has limited value unless the company has a robust procedure for monitoring, feedback, and action. Strategic risk management must be an ongoing, and continual process. External risks are constantly evolving, which means an organization’s strategies may need to evolve as well. 

In the last two decades, companies have invested millions in extracting, storing, tracking and trending data from within their firewalls. Internal risk factors (integrity or EHS or technological) are often treated as compliance issues and are managed by creating internal rules and policies. However, external risks are episodic. External or strategic risks are constantly evolving. To prevent potential impact on earnings, enterprise value from adverse business decisions, or lack of response to industry changes, businesses need to monitor their marketplace daily to identify and evaluate how events, scenarios, and forces of change impact their business performance and strategy.

With Nowigence, leaders employ an enterprise-wide approach to risk management, designed to reduce the probability of assumed and unassumed risks associated with their marketplace operations and strategy execution.

The Fallout 

Without proper external or strategic risk management system

If Nowigence's platform was available back in 2007 when Apple introduced the first iPhone, then Blackberry could have anticipated and managed the external risks associated with the smartphone era better and avoided losing as much share and enterprise value to Apple’s iPhone as history reflects.

  • Apple introduces world's first smartphone (iPhone) in 2007 
    • Blackberry's response in a conference after the iPhone launch: "We'll be fine."
  •  Post iPhone introduction:  
    • 2009- Blackberry valued at $55 billion with almost 50% market share 
    • 2011- Blackberry valued at $6 billion with almost 3% market share

Nowigence would not have allowed this to happen.    Learn More
