Where is the automotive industry going

New Automotive Industry Entrants and Cross-Sector Collaboration Will Bring New Threats and Opportunities

The 4th industrial revolution is about to turn the automotive industry upside-down, rip up traditional business models and will come out the other side better and stronger, but very different.

Many new features in cars and other vehicles that took a decade to normalise across the industry will need to be incorporated in a few short years.   The automotive industry as always evolved, but a revolution is under way.

  • Those who don’t keep up will be squashed to death!
  • Those that get on the bus will see a very different road ahead.
  • Those that resist change will cease to exist, and those that embrace change may or may not benefit from the changes

The pace of change within components that do or could go into vehicles is fast but the pace in which the automotive industry is changing is breath-taking, and its accelerating!

The world’s auto industry will have more customers demands to meet, but what are they going to deliver and when?   Automated vehicles powered by renewable energy is nothing new.   How quickly can society keep up with what is possible on the roads?   Will automotive industry take to the skies!   Will we get into autonomous vehicles (AV) and literally fly to work whilst playing computer games!   Will the automobile get swallowed up whole by Google, Apple and Sony?

Assessing the local impact of global risk events

BusinessRiskTV.com Global Risk Report 2018

Understanding global risks is important for all business leaders.   Identifying and assessing the global risks in 2018 is not a once-a-year task.

  1. Existing risks will morph into bigger risks to your business
  2. Small smaller risks will combine to create an aggregate risk that could even threaten the survival of your business.
  3. Emerging risks not obvious at the time of the report, could subside and just be accepted, or they could gather momentum and threaten business objectives.

In addition, the risks that could threaten some businesses, could present an opportunity for your business to grow faster, but if you miss the start of the opportunity, you could miss the boat entirely, or fail to maximise the potential rewards from the opportunity.

Unlike other less dynamic reporting systems, companies or entity’s, BusinessRiskTV.com will provide you with regular risk reports to help you manage enterprise risks more proactively to mitigate threats to your business better and seize new business development opportunities earlier.

In short, BusinessRiskTV.com is less about looking back and offering expert risk reports with hindsight, and more about looking forward with more dynamic forecasts backed up with practical risk management solutions for both the upside and downside aspects to global risks as it affects your business wherever you are in the world.

 

Filtering the global risks noise for your business

BusinessRiskTV.com will reduce the effort required to identify what your business needs to do next after assessing the magnitude of the risk to your country or industry in easy to understand language.

  • Take proportionate action to mitigate threats to your business
  • Evaluate and act on potential opportunities
  • Better protection, faster growth in 2018

Your Business Forecast To Grow Faster Than The CBI Thinks

Confederation of British Industry CBI Is Politically Motivated and Industry Biased Reports

Absolutely no one can state with absolute certainty what the impact of Brexit will be on UK economy.   Most of the articles on the impact of Brexit are politically biased, Leave or Remain, as there is still a fight for the result of the real Brexit vote.

Many reports, including the ones from the CBI, are also industry biased.   The industry most likely, though not guaranteed, to suffer if and when the UK leaves the European Union EU will be the financial services industry.   This particular industry could actually also be the main industry benefactor from Brexit too, but a lot will depend on the end deal with the EU.

Most business leaders in the UK can’t control Brexit, but they can control the impact of Brexit on their own business

Don’t let the CBI, the media or your mother dictate how you react to Brexit, should it eventually happen.   Deal with what you know for certain.   The value of the UK pound has fallen against a basket of foreign currencies because the financial markets don’t like uncertainty, and it is highly uncertain if there will be a Brexit, and if it happens what kind of Brexit it will be.   The UK certainly has a massive opportunity right now, never mind March 2019 or later, to sell more overseas.

UK business leaders need to lay the foundations for a better future whether Brexit happens or not

Seize the day!   The devaluation of the UK pound will remain as it is or devalue further over the next few years, unless Brexit is stopped.   This devaluation negates most of the trade tariffs that could be imposed by EU or are imposed by other non-EU countries already.

Don’t wait for tariff-free agreements from wherever they might come.   Tariff-free agreements could become the cherry on top of the cake for UK international traders.   Tariff-free agreements could also boost the value of the pound and there will be no net benefit from the signing of tariff-free agreement, in terms of the cost of your products or services to overseas buyers from your business in UK.

UK business leaders will look back on this period of UK economic history and think they missed a massive business opportunity to sell more overseas

This is the time to sell more overseas, not when free-trade agreements have been signed, if they ever get signed.

Economic uncertainty has brought a massive opportunity as well as threat to UK businesses.   Many UK business manufacturers have already exploited this perceived UK economy weakness to export more.   If you want to concentrate your focus on the UK domestic market alone, then we wish you well.

Functions Of Risk Management Department

The risk management team or department should facilitate improved enterprise decision-making to boost business performance.

Risk management principles practice and process should increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the business.   The business leaders will be able to take more risk consciously as opposed to unconscious acceptance of higher risk levels.

What is the right level of risk will depend on the risk appetite and risk tolerance of the business leaders.   There maybe nothing wrong with a high corporate risk exposure to achieve business goals and objectives as long as you know how exposed the business is and put in suitable risk control measures.

Adopting the principles practices and processes of iso 31000 will increase the likelihood of a business strategy being a success.   It will also reduce the level of uncertainty that can accompany more challenging business objectives.

Enterprise Risk Management Framework

Better Business Protection Faster Business Growth Tips Advice Support from BusinessRiskTV.comUse an enterprise risk management ERM framework to help you develop an effective business management strategy that protects your business assets and helps you grow faster.

A robust enterprise risk management framework will help embed a more risk aware culture up and down the organisation.

An effective risk management system will require a clear role for the risk management function in the business.   The risk management function in the business can only develop added value for the organisation if it is fully supported in the boardroom.   With the board behind the risk management function, all levels of the organisation will develop enhanced risk management capability enhanced by the risk manager or risk management team.

The risk management function will support corporate governance and risk oversight but cannot control corporate risks on its own.

Risk Management Function Supports Risk Identification Risk Assessment and Risk Control

Productivity In The Workplace

How To Improve Productivity In The Workplace In UK

German workers have the same output in 4 days that it takes UK workers 5 days to produce, according to the UK Chancellor, Philip Hammond, in is Autumn Statement on the UK performance to date.

For the UK to sustainably increase wages, meet the needs of an aging population and develop business growth, it needs to increase productivity by 25%, just to match the productivity of German workers in recent times.

Better Business Protection Faster Business Growth Tips Advice Support from BusinessRiskTV.com

Increasing output for every hour of input

To improve productivity, the UK needs to produce more from every effort put into a business or enterprise.   The UK government needs to play its part including boosting internet broadband availability and speeds, improving road rail and air transportation, as well as increase spending on other infrastructure improvements.   However, every business needs to work out what it needs to do to get more output from the same resources.

Poor sales growth domestically and internationally, reliance on cheap particularly foreign workers(most of UK’s new jobs created over recent year have been foreign workers), and a lack of investment in training of employees is a big part of the UK Plc’s poor productivity.   Another significant part is the lack of engagement of existing assets – the existing workforce.   Business enterprise leaders have not involved the whole workforce in business decision-making.   Every business has talented workers who know how to solve business problems and improve productivity, but business leaders have not taken a holistic approach to productivity improvement.  Where a business has poor productivity, it is because not everyone is on the some bus to achieve a common destination.   The solution is to engage the workforce more in business decision-making process.

How do you improve your business productivity

The public sector also needs to do more with less, in an age of austerity.   The UK needs to somehow get more out of every available resource invested in public services.

How efficient is your business?

Or are you working hard at working hard

Few business leaders and their employees don’t work hard.   Hard work is required, but if you are all working hard with insignificant improvement, then maybe you should ask yourself if there might be another way to make business decisions?

Financial Services Jobs At Risk Of Automation

The Bigger Risk To Financial Services Jobs Is Automation Or Robots Not Brexit

Ignore the threat to financial services industry jobs of Brexit. You should be much more worried about the threat of robots. Job automation is the biggest finance sector threat and opportunity.

Financial Services Industry Risks
Financial services industry news headlines risk analysis and financial reports

Job Automation Risk To Your Financial Sector Job

No doubt. Financial services industry is very important to the UK economy. If financial services jobs were lost other sectors would be affected. Fewer services jobs needed to service those in financial services jobs!

Many jobs in financial services are high paid jobs. Top British bankers are paid much more than elsewhere. Resistance to moving to Germany is as much about personal reasons. The UK economy may or may not suffer after Brexit. Bankers will suffer.

However people in financial services are facing automation existential threat. Never mind moving to Germany your job is going full stop!

FinTech company jobs will be prevalent. Bankers less so. Most financial services jobs can be done faster cheaper better. Robots will be

  • less emotional
  • more reliable and
  • after a few years significantly cheaper

How long do you think the C Suite will keep your job. If job automation is better for bonuses your job is toast!

Existing financial services jobs are like UK miners jobs. The buildings will remain but the people in them will be different. Cyber security and fintech risk managers will be plentiful.

  • Banks insurers and funds will need cyber experts. They will stop external and internal threats to money.
  • Fintech risk managers will direct risk appetite and risk tolerance
  • C suite virtual bankers insurers fund managers will be wealthier
  • Wealthier investors but more at risk of systemic industry collapse
  • Software developers will frequent the bars and restaurants. Existing financial services people will be there waiting on tables!

Most existing financial services jobs will be lost to job automation. Do not doubt this for a second!

However it is not all doom and gloom. The key to survive is to move into the new financial services sector jobs. Some new financial services jobs do not exist right now! You must change your skills set to take advantage and survive.

Its not just the top bankers that need worry. Indeed they are the ones most likely to easily morph. Financial services jobs most at risk

  • Mortgage advice
  • Financial and investment advice
  • Insurance advice
  • Any financial services sector job your current phone app replaces!

Consumers have a choice to use financial services apps and websites. In future the consumer will have no choice. Financial services consumers will not speak to people. People will be gone replaced by job automation. The robots will have taken over the financial services world!

There is no point in complaining. No point arguing with us. Better spending your time reskilling instead. Stop worrying about Brexit. Start retraining to overcome threat of job automation. Learn tech skills not German!

Its not about how to reduce risk

External or internal driven risks threaten your business. They also create new business development opportunities. Reducing the effect of uncertainty on your business is important.

How do you manage enterprise risks? Do you put risk into different silos like safety, insurance, cyber risk, sales strategy etc? They can be rolled into one holistic risk based approach.

What is the most effective way for a business to manage risk? Look at what you are trying to achieve? Could you achieve more with your existing assets? Has good luck been saving you from disaster?

Understand the bigger picture first. When you know what risk you have then manage it.

There is danger being in business. Danger that you could blow your value. Danger you could under perform.

Executives Behaving Badly

Corporate Misbehaviour Is A Misnomer

Corporate or enterprise entities do not make mistakes or create a bad business culture, executives do.   Illegal, unethical or bad business practices arise because that’s the way executives want a company to achieve corporate objectives.   Executives may or may not consider their business practices as bad or unethical, but the result is the same – corporate misbehaviour.

iso 31000 Enterprise Risk Management Framework Principles Best Practices

Understanding corporate misbehaviour

It may be a pointless waste of money undertaking a business health check if the executives are going to be unreceptive to the final risk management report, or simple pay lip-service to the outcomes.

Many CEOs know what game needs to be played with enterprise risk management ERM before they can return to their own agenda for the business.   Internal or external risk management audits can just play into the CEO’s attitude to risk management.   Such executives short-term philosophy seems to rely on the hope that the shit doesn’t hit the fan during their time as CEO and whatever happens after they move on is not a concern for some incumbent CEOs.

Much of executive misbehaviour, and therefore corporate misbehaviour, is a direct result of executive pay and associated benefits.   Misdirecting executive pay and rewards drives most if not all catastrophic corporate collapses.   Before the collapse poor executive pay and rewards strategies poison business innovation and employee motivation.

To anticipate which companies will survive sustainably you could look at how executives are rewarded.   It is the single biggest driver of corporate culture and long-term success, or not as the case maybe.

Executive managers cause corporate scandals, corporate scandals are not externally driven.   The proximate cause of the corporate scandal or collapse doesn’t start further down the organisation nor does it start from outside the company.   CEO bad behaviour is normally the proximate cost or the catalyst for corporate collapse.

Corporate Scandals

Corporate scandals aren’t a surprise to most executives, never mind the CEO.   They take the level of risk they think is required to achieve their business objectives.   They roll the dice and sometimes it pays off and sometimes it doesn’t.

For example, many in the banking and finance industry look upon the financial crisis as an external risk that impacted on their business strategy.   No, or little, blame can be placed at the bankers door!   It was all the other bankers and financers who were at fault for their share price collapse, mass redundancies and lost business opportunities – not their fault as their business was doing just fine until the financial crisis tsunami hit their business.

Such egotistical responses stem from either self preservation, or lack of care for their part in the near global systemic financial collapse of the banking and financial sector and the very near global anarchy which would have ensued.   Politicians, who were part of the problem, became part of the solution – make money as cheap as possible via low interest rates and massive almost unremitting quantitative easing QE.

Mothers forget how bad childbirth was

More than a decade after the start of the financial crisis there is still mass unemployment in the developed world and the developing world lost a decade of opportunity to crawl out of poverty.   However, the key decision-makers in the business world have either forgiven themselves or reinvented themselves in position of power.   In addition, a new raft of politicians are in place, or about to find positions of power, to facilitate the next financial crisis.

At its least useful, enterprise risk management ERM is a tool to spread the blame should the shit hit the fan, so one would have thought that ERM could be more popular than it is.   At its most useful it helps business leaders make business decisions that are more likely to be good ones for the long-term sustainability of the business for the benefit of all stakeholders in the business – including the CEO.

What makes your business stand out?

Our showcasing of your products or services will demonstrate why your competitors customers should buy from you.   Pull in new customers to your business more profitably.   Land more notice of what your business has to offer.

Do this differently

Formula 1 teams with smaller budgets have to fight for every last point by thinking and acting differently from their bigger competitors.   You need to grab the attention of new customers in a different way from competitors unless you have unlimited advertising and marketing budget.

It is a challenge to capture more bang for your buck.   BusinessRiskTV.com can help you attain more from every pound you spend.

What makes your business unique?

If your business is unique then great, but for many businesses this simply isn’t true.   However, if potential buyers don’t know what you’re offering then they will buy from your competitors instead.   You’ve lost the sales not because your inferior, but because you weren’t even in the running.

Insurance Collaboration

Call for insurance collaboration

Looking for a way to disrupt the commercial business insurance marketplace?

Could Amazon, Apple or Google sell commercial insurance policies cheaper and better?   You’re damn right they could.   All three have pots of cash they could invest in selling business insurance more cost-effectively.   Will it happen – no idea?

Once banks sort themselves out – a while away I give you that – they could become dominant virtual insurance companies in the commercial insurance marketplace.   What about:

  • Walmart or other supermarkets selling commercial insurance
  • Oil producers  might start deploying their money in other less risky ways to make a profit
  • State funds like Dubai or Norway built on oil could see insurance as an opportunity.   An opportunity to totally disrupt the insurance marketplace

Apple and Google will take over the automotive marketplace in the future (if Tesla are too busy trying to get to Mars), so maybe too busy to attack the commercial business insurance marketplace, but their innovative approach is a very good example of how traditional thinking in business could result in an obsolete company – BMW, Ford, none of them are immune, and neither are insurance companies or insurance brokers.

Maybe your clients will buy their commercial insurance whilst on a flight across the channel on a business trip to USA.   The insurer?   Norway State fund – more stable than any insurance company.   It might even take over a smaller insurance provider and use it as a base to disrupt the insurance marketplace.

Is the traditional insurance marketplace too big to be attacked?    Well AIG weren’t too big to fail and smaller players in the insurance marketplace aren’t too big to suffer failure from different cause – disruptive innovation.

Traditional ways of selling and distributing insurance cover to businesses are working

Could they also be done differently?   We believe so and are seeking insurance provider partners to work with us on designing innovative ways to sell commercial insurance online locally and globally.

Integrating commercial insurance in holistic risk management could head off insurance marketplace disruptors, from wherever they emerge.

However, traditional ways of using insurance cover to help give business leaders a “quiet nights sleep” may be too conservative to survive.

Are Oxfam Carillion and Growing Skills Gap in UK USA Japan just some of the more recent examples of the senior management malaise or examples of systemic failure of current crop of capitalists

We fail and then we fail to learn!

The long list of failures to manage enterprise risks is too depressing to list here.   Such a waste of time, money and life!  What an opportunity cost to corporate entities and society.

The only long lasting positive thing to come out of each major risk event, or negative aggregation risk outcome, is legislation

Our present crop of senior managers, executives, fund managers and politicians aren’t any worse, or better, than previous ones.   Talking a good game about risk, governance or compliance GRC is often followed by another failure to manage risks with all stakeholders in mind.

Eventually the general public start looking for heads to lop-off and new legislation is written that can often be more risk-averse than it needed to be, but The People got sick of the incompetence at the top and “something had to be done”.

Business leaders and politicians often moan about statutory legislation, but if managers could manage risks better we wouldn’t need more legislation.   Recent examples of major risk events, or aggregation of regular failure to manage smaller risk events, are more examples of our key risk decision-makers failing and more legislation is required to fill the gap in risk management knowledge and/or failing corporate risk management culture.

22nd February 2018 – Member’s of UK’s Parliament (MPs) Question Pensions Regulator In Public

The Pensions Regulator head with responsibility for monitoring pensions and protecting pensioners in UK admitted to MPs that the Pensions Regulator needed to be “clearer, quicker and tougher” in using its powers to force companies to pay more into their pension schemes.

As an example of the Pensions Regulator’s failure one could highlight Carillion where many thousands of pensioners face reduced pensions.   Carillion’s pension Trustees asked the Pension Regulator in 2010 and 2013 to force Carillion to put more money into it’s pension scheme.   The Pension Regulator twice refused and the Pension Regulator CEO since 2015 admitted that it should have done more to extract higher pension contributions from Carillion’s executive management team.

Carillion’s executives have claimed that a failing Qatar contract was one of the main causes of Carillion’s collapse, but auditors KPMG say that was not a cause of Carillion’s collapse.

KPMG tried to defend their auditing of Carillion’s accounts in 2016 and 2017, but the business select committee chairperson said she would “not hire you (KPMG) to audit the contents of my fridge”.

Much criticism has been expressed about the system of corporate governance in UK’s biggest companies.   Who is responsible for the loss of pension benefits for Carillion pensioners is not clear, but what is clear that the current system of corporate governance and risk management is not working  for stakeholders like pensioners, majority of employees, contractors, shareholders and corporate customers.   The winners are winning big and the losers are losing big!

20th February 2018 – UK’s Pension Regulator Ignored Trustees Of Collapsed Outsourcing Firm Carillion

The pensions regulator twice ignored requests from trustees of Carillion to force the company to fill Carillion’s pension black hole.

The pensions regulator has come under fire from UK’s members of parliament for failing to take steps to protect Carillion’s pension scheme members, especially as they were asked twice by the trustees of the pension before Carillion collapsed.   When Carillion collapsed, the firm had pension liabilities of around £3 billion.

“With characteristic alacrity, the Pensions Regulator started its arduous process of chasing money down from Carillion a few days after it was formally announced there was no money left,” Frank Field, chair of parliament’s Work and Pensions Committee.

The Pension Regulator didn’t comment on the continued significant bonuses consistently awarded to Carillion executives or the dividends issued to shareholders with between £2-3 billion in underfunded pensions.

Carillion’s pension scheme now has to be transferred to the Pension Protection Fund, which is likely to mean the loss of benefits for the majority of the 27,500 pension scheme members.

If the Pensions Regulator had conducted an Enterprise Risk Management Audit of Carillion they would clearly have identified that the black hole was not an unfortunate coincidence but a systemic failure of Carillion’s corporate governance and risk management culture.
