Effective management of risk helps organizations achieve their objectives, while complying with legal, regulatory, and societal expectations, and enables them to better respond and adapt to surprises and disruptions. This paper positions the management of risk as an indispensable and integral part of decision making and subsequent execution in order for boards and management to ensure their organization makes the best decisions and achieves its objectives.

The paper also a) demonstrates the benefits of properly integrating the management of risk, including internal control, into the governance, management, and operations of an organization; b) provides ideas and suggestions on how such integration can be achieved; and c) furnishes practical examples of how professional accountants in business can support their organizations with this integration.
