Every day you can find multiple great ideas that could potentially disruptive the current way of doing things. My favourites at the moment are flying modes of transport that could easily replace vehicles that have to travel on roads and flying machines that briefly go to space to get to their destination quicker. They may seem like far off technological developments, but the technology works now. Its flight rules and regulations that will hold them back to protect carmakers and airplane makers not technology risks.
Everyday new innovative ideas and products flood onto the market. For most it will be like Tomorrows World. The innovative ideas will not be sustainable. We want to work with people who want to take over the world in a good way!
Your brand maybe vulnerable to others who have been thinking differently, or from changes to the marketplace. It may fail cause your performance ain’t good enough, or because your competitors change the rules of the game.
How you fail may not matter too much after you’ve failed. It will be too late to consider what you are doing wrong. Kodak didn’t want to change when they had to change to survive. They were making too much money from photographs to change to embrace digital photography. Market changes can kill the best businesses.
The best form of defence is often attack
Being more innovative or creative can be frightening. Picking the wrong horse in a paddock of new opportunities can be very costly. Innovation can also be exciting and highly rewarding.

Maximising business opportunities for growth
There is a yin and yang to all threats and opportunities.
Every threat comes with an opportunity to change for the better.
Every opportunity comes with a threat that the new will destroy existing value.

Anyone can cross their fingers and hope for success but clever business leaders don’t leave their success to luck!
Not everything is going to go well no matter how hard you plan things. Life often gets in the way of the best business plans! In the real world you have to take calculated risks to achieve more than the next business leader who is risk averse.
How do you get the enterprise risk balance right though?
There are many ways to get the right enterprise risk management ERM balance right. First of all you need to know where you are now and how much of an appetite for risk your key decision makers have.
Once risk appetite and risk tolerance are clear then the culture of risk management can be tailored to strike the right risk management balance for your organisation.

Solutions include employing more staff to work on the same minor business problems then business leaders wonder why they are spending more without any increase in business productivity and no business performance improvement.

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.

Enterprise risk management is not a once in a business lifecycle activity. It is a continuous activity that supports business development and implementation of a more risk aware business strategy.
Use 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
However the risk management function does not control corporate risks on its own.
The risk management function is integral to the risk management process but it isn’t the sole component of the risk management process.
The risk management function educates informs and trains all levels of the organisation to assess prioritise and control corporate risks. It enables business leaders to manage enterprise risk better.
The risk management function helps to develop and embed risk control techniques to reduce the likelihood of losses and the size of losses. It should also identify, assess and help seize business development opportunities.

Conformity Of Global Financial Leaders Led To 2008 Financial Crisis
Global financial leaders made faulty decisions because as a group they lost touch with reality and had an inherent poor moral compass. That has not changed.
Global Leaders Poor Moral Compass Will Lead To Next Financial Crisis
The financial services industry is like a cartel. It deliberately publishes false economic risk analysis and critically evaluates global risks to benefit the financial services preferred strategic direction. Such groupthink is creating business decision making that will lead to financial failure yet again.
The City is thinking as one to protect The City not to develop a sustainable UK economy. It is fighting to protect itself in the short to medium term. If it succeeds it will miss the opportunities for more rapid business growth and the UK will miss out too.
The financial services industry is a highly cohesive and organised sector of the economy which is massively supported by the media and politicians.

Doing the dull things well can be more sustainably successful than trying to come up with the best thing since sliced bread
Many business leaders look foolish after major risk events that destroy business value
Ill advised actions or inaction can often have been avoided if only business leaders made straight forward decisions to reduce uncertainty.
After the risk event investigations normally discover ludicrous decisions were taken that were more likely to cause a damaging risk event than the shortsighted manager’s would have you believe. They were either incompetent or reckless.
Rash business decisions do not have to be taken by unintelligent human beings. They are normally made due to a deficient decision making process than dim business leaders.

The OECD has already downgraded global economic growth forecasts in November 2018.
International trade disputes around the world and uncertainty over Brexit will reduce world trading and lower business growth according to OECD.
The Organisation for Economic CoOperation and Development OECD forecasts world economic growth of 3.3 percent in 2019 and 3.4 percent in 2020.
25th February 2019 Hopes Rise For More Global Trade
President Trump has decided to delay raising tariffs on Chinese goods. This has encouraged a brighter outlook on global trade. Hopes are rising that America and China will agree a trade deal which will support an increase in global trade.

2nd January 2019 Slower Global Economic Growth In 2019
Global economic growth will slow if the hangover from 2018 continues in 2019.
Political risks on the downside threaten the fluidity of global trade which will slow economic growth. Trade tensions between USA and China and USA and Europe top the list of political risks in 2019.
Less money sloshing about in the global economy will slow global economic growth. Examples include the Eurozone closing the cash flow taps with the end of quantitative easing QE by European Central Bank ECB. In addition and perhaps more significantly the Federal Reserve in USA seem intent on continuing to increase interest rates in America which will make money a lot more expensive thus negatively impacting on economic growth in USA.
Businesses across the globe will find it harder to make a profit in 2019 and this will reduce sovereign state income from taxation and reduce corporate free money available for investment in future which will hit global economic growth.
In addition if political risks ease or reverse the global economy could actually receive a boost. For example there are indications that China is prepared to do a deal with USA. If this happens then 2019 could become a lot more positive.
Germanys private sector expansion slowed to a four year low
China November retail sales grew at the weakest pace since 2003 and industrial output rose the least in nearly three years due to trade dispute with USA.
The European Union EU has not thrown UK Prime Minister a bone to help her get her Brexit deal through UK parliament. This indicates it is highly likely she will have to pivot but to what?
21st November 2018 Trade Disputes and Higher Central Bank Interest Rates Are Slowing Global Economy
On the positive side there are currently no signs of a sharp economic downturn according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD.
The OECD is currently forecasting that global growth would slow from 3.7 percent this year to 3.5 percent in 2019 and 2020. It had previously projected 3.7 percent for 2019.
13th November 2018 Global Growth Is Slowing
According to the International Monetary Fund IMF a number of the bigger economies are slowing and they could suddenly contract should there be a major risk event.
Key global growth risk factors include
USA China trade war could increase costs globally.
Higher energy costs. Oil prices have increased by more than 60 percent in two years.
Certain higher USA interest rates are on their way but how will this impact on global consumption?
Higher USA interest rates will strengthen the dollar the worlds currency of choice. How will a significant strengthening impact on global growth.
Parts of the world are still trying to recover from the global financial crisis including Italys banks and sovereign debt. A collapse of the banking system in Italy would reverberate around the world. Greece can be bailed out Italy can not.
The IMF forecasts global growth for 2018 to 2019 to remain at its 2017 level of 3.7 percent but the growth outlook for a number of major economies has been marked down.
17th April 2018 Global Economic Growth 3.5 Percent

14th March 2018 A Credit Rating Agency Fitch Has Suggested Global Economic Growth Is Strong and Accelerating
Global economic growth is rising faster now than it has for around a decade.
Unemployment is falling, money is still cheap in most parts of the world and corporate investment is strong.
Fitch is forecasting global economic growth of 3.3 percent in 2018 and 3.2 percent in 2019. Last year it was 3.2 percent according to Fitch.
27th February 2018 You Should Be Optimistic About Your Future
Global growth prospects for 2018-19 are improving and accelerating. Most parts of the world are looking to a better 2018 than 2017 in terms of economic growth and 2017 was one of the best year’s for growth in close to a decade.
Not every business will take advantage of increasing global economic growth, just like not all businesses went bust during the financial crisis starting in 2007 to 2008. The rising tide of business opportunities creates the environment for your business to grow much faster in 2018.
Corporate business leaders in UK who look for new business development opportunities will find them.
If you do not think you have time to explore business growth opportunities, you may get the opportunity to reflect at your leisure after your business collapses. Those companies that fail to grow may find they contract or even fail to survive.

2nd February 2018 BusinessRiskTV Forecasts The Economic Forecasts Will Get Global Growth Wrong For 2018
Many economists are forecasting around the 4 percent mark for global economic growth in 2018. BusinessRiskTV forecasts this will underplay the global economic boom that is set to happen in 2018.
If a major global event occurs like World War 111 then growth will be slower but if World War 3 happens we will not care about economic forecasts any longer! Such geopolitical risk events aside we can look around the world and see great news unfolding:
America is feeding in huge corporate and personal tax cuts into its economy. When America grows so does the rest of the world. In addition, low unemployment and faster wage increases in USA will turbo-charge the USA economy in 2018.
Eurozone is experiencing is fastest growth period in around a decade and this will continue, but accelerate in 2018, as people find jobs and property values start to rise making people in the Eurozone feel wealthier. Manufacturing is returning to countries in Eurozone that may have once have forgotten how to make things.
Africa is a sleeping giant that will fail to get its act together in 2018 but will improve on recent economic performance.
Asia Pacific is set to expand faster with the likes of India in particular racing ahead. China will continue to find more and more people jobs in 2018 and will lift more people out of poverty further increasing demand for domestic and international consumption. Japan will finally put decades of deflation behind it and new technology will begin to overcome demographic time-bomb to the benefit of Japanese economy.
The Americas, and Brazil in particular, was once a fast growing area of the globe. South American expenditure will be healthier in 2018 and help develop continental and global growth faster than 2017.
The UK is constantly put down by people in the UK but the UK economy will continue to surprise most UK economists trying to subvert Brexit and grow faster than 2 percent in 2018. Low unemployment, faster wage growth due to skills shortages and rising housing prices will encourage UK consumers to spend more and manufacturing and services sectors will push UK growth faster supported by a return of the construction sector.
Middle Eastern countries will benefit from rising oil prices and rebuilding of some physically damaged countries.
8th January 2018 Global Economy Forecasts: Increasingly More Positive Business Outlook

The importance of leadership in business is either underestimated or played down. Your team or business functions will operate in line with the inspiration you create or fail to create. Zombie businesses can survive in most business climates, but few will thrive in the business marketplace without good leadership, either from the top, or from middle managers who pick up the baton where the actual leaders have dropped it.
Whats worse is that few businesses invest sufficiently in developing future business leaders
There are many reasons for this. For some businesses, existing business leaders fear training those below them in case they walk away from the business to competitors or to become a new competitor business.
One way to overcome this fear is to share the rewards developing leaders bring to the business and not be too greedy over short term spoils of new business generated and instead look to the long term benefit of fairly rewarding key business team members.
All hugely successful organisations and businesses need effective leaders
To become a great business leader requires much more than technical business skills that say accountants and lawyers may have. Great business leaders have bundles of emotional intelligence to bring in everybody into improve business performance not just the Board.
Top business leaders are not always brilliant business managers. You can be an amazing business manager, but may never be a business leader. Often great business leaders are not in management positions. Their talent is wasted cause they never get into a position to fully express themselves for the benefit of the business as a whole and themselves.
How do you find the business leaders in your business and bring business leaders together to focus on sustainable business growth?
Enterprise risk management methodology will help in this regard. Many SMEs and large businesses can benefit from developing the leaders who will guide us to a better future.
A look at the business news headlines in most week’s will reveal examples of bad business leadership. W need to help educate business leaders better to reduce frequency of bad business events and increase the occurrence and size of business successes. How we get there does not matter too much, but too often we don’t.

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 percent just to match the productivity of German workers in recent times.
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 UKs 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 Plcs 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.
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.

BusinessRiskTV will use business enterprise risk management tools and techniques to engage your workforce to improve business productivity and overall performance.
How efficient is your business?
Have your investments in people and other assets produced as much as possible? Could you produce more with your existing resources? Could you more cleverly focus your money and time on efforts that will bring greater corporate and individual rewards?
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?

Business leaders need confidence in their decision making and entrepreneurial thinking to find new business opportunities.
Are You an entrepreneur of business leader who is procrastinating or fearful of the future
Look at the world through an improving business and economic environment. The UK is strong and set to get stronger:
House prices are resilient.
Job creation is encouraging.
The pound is weaker but this is a net positive benefit for many businesses.
Borrowing money is probably never going to be cheaper than it is right now.
It’s probably never going to be easier to export from UK to new and existing markets.
The present is good and the future looks bright
The UK has the skills and ability to be greater than it is right now
Don’t listen to the doom-mongers! The UK has more opportunities to grow faster than it has had in front of it for decades. Don’t look back at today and think, “I wish I had seized the day”. The time for waiting is over. Today will be the past and your great historic past is for the making now!
Business Leaders Need To Cut Their Cloth Accordingly
George Osborne said prior to the Brexit Vote on the 23rd June 2016 that if the UK voted to leave the European Union EU, it would have to cut its cloth accordingly.
Well according to economic data so far, the UK has a stable economic platform to launch into strong business growth actions, despite the uncertainty of an impending presidential election in America.
Are there huge economic uncertainties just now?
Of course! When haven’t there been significant uncertainties for business? However, should we wait before investing time and money in our future? Absolutely not! This is the time for sowing the seeds of your future success. Businesses in the UK have so many opportunities for growth.
Where are the growth opportunities ?
Well have you looked properly! They are there. Your competitors may have spotted them. Look and you shall find!
Too much noise and not enough action!
Everybody is busy, but being busy doesn’t mean to say you’re in the growth business. Are you working hard but standing still? Have you got the talent, the assets and the ambition but not the results you’d hoped for?
The UK was built on innovation and hard graft, but in the recent past, we’ve been grafting too much and not innovating enough. The UK’s business leaders need to think smarter, not just work harder.
I could do with some help here mate!
Talk is cheap! I hear you! However, talking with like minded innovators who want to move to the action phase quickly might produce new business growth for your company.
Do most business leaders want the same thing – growth? Presumably none want to down-size. Many are happy to stay the same, though few businesses can survive by staying the same.
Many of your peers are happy to share ways to overcome barriers to business survival and business growth. No one person knows it all and even if they did, what they learnt would soon be out of date. Unless you keep up to date with best practices and evolving methods of working, you are going backwards behind competitors.
Sometimes we need to be inspired by the actions of others
Olympic competitors are inspired by the achievements of other Olympians. They may be at the top of their game, but they can still be inspired by the success of their peers.
Balanced Enterprise Risk Perspective
Are you taking too little or too much risk? Poor business performance can come from too much, or too little risk.
Getting access to the horse’s mouth
If you don’t know – ask for free! It is highly unlikely that your business problems are totally unique. They might be unusual and have a different impact on your business, but the solution to your business problems have almost certainly already been found at another business somewhere in the world.
It is important to get risk into the right perspective. If you don’t know enough about your enterprise risks, it is possible that you are being overly cautious. Alternatively you might be acting (or not acting) recklessly, and are on the edge of catastrophic disaster, due to lack of risk knowledge. Are you deliberately not asking questions cause you might not like the answers?
Are you an entrepreneur or business leader who is procrastinating?
