The growing movement for enterprise risk management in government: the United States begins to catch up

Submitted on 7th September 2017

After lagging the United Kingdom and Canada in managing risk of government agencies and programmes, the United States is beginning to catch up with action by a small and growing group of government officials seeking to apply a management approach known as “enterprise risk management” (ERM). Increased risk management, and ERM in particular, will continue to expand across US federal organisations as managers increasingly see the benefits of trying to anticipate risks and systematically improve their decision making.
