What are some of the barriers to raising
the profile of risk management?

             • Seen as just ‘another initiative’
             • Lack of management buy-in
             • Lack of members buy-in

Making risk management a priority
               Added as a priority in the
                   corporate plan

               Embedding risk management:
                to provide the council with an
              excellent risk management focus,
                 which allows the council and
             partners to better manage risks and
Ensuring you have the right strategic risk

              measured – incentive to
              manage risks

 The table shows the movement of overdue risk of each department during the previous four months. The ‘change’ column relates to the
 increase/decrease over the last month. The ‘Longest overdue risk’ shows the number of days a risk is and for each department the most
 overdue risk is stated. ‘No. of overdue red risks’ highlights the red risks outstanding for reviewing.
