The authors work demonstrates that strategic risks caused the greatest amount of shareholder value destruction in some of the world’s biggest companies during the past 10 years. This happens because enterprise teams relegate risk management to their enterprise risk management (ERM) teams. Instead, they must revise their approach to strategic decision making, augmenting traditional cost and value considerations with risk and resiliency considerations. This involves broadening the team’s awareness about uncertainty and risk, integrating risk awareness into strategic decision making, and adopting strategic resiliency thinking.
