Risk Management - The Heart of Good Governance

Building the Next Generation of Family Businesses


In the current business climate where Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity take centre stage, repercussions of failing to establish effective Risk Management frameworks, grounded upon sound principles, can prove costly.


This workshop will discuss Risk Management, its purpose and objectives, and examples of how such frameworks enable Family Businesses to remain relevant in today's fast changing environment.


About the Series


The unique foundation of family businesses is in its interaction between the business and the owners – the family. By drawing on trust, stability and flexibility, many family businesses have been able to prosper. However, despite these advantages, the foundation of family businesses also has its vulnerabilities; two in three family businesses do not survive past the first generation. Given the turbulent business environment of Myanmar in the recent years, it is imperative for family businesses to address certain key issues to guarantee their survival and to remain competitive.


The first advantage of family-owned businesses lies in the more personal approach of conducting business on the basis of trust. By nurturing loyalty, commitment, and stewardship, trust within the family can serve as the cement for competitive advantage and sustainable growth for family businesses. Trust in family businesses is anchored in the family's values and vision, resulting in strong managerial commitment and loyalty that can be difficult for non-family businesses to replicate. This commitment can lead to benefits such as stronger customer relations and a highly productive workforce.
