Reducing operational risk with process excellence

Companies can often encounter unexpected losses, defects, customer complaints or damages on reputation, machines or people due to operational or process-related problems. Reducing these risks is therefore a process-related issue to consider. At ifss we have deep rooted knowledge in methods for risk mitigation in processes.

Some questions we can answer regarding operational risk are:

  • What tools and methods can we use to identify areas in our processes where risks are more prone to occur?
  • Can we identify operational risk on processes and quantify the potential damage?
  • Is there a structured method to reduce operational risk and can we quantify the impact of risk mitigation?
