Every business faces risks that could threaten its success. As business owners, we are all too aware of strategic risks – a new competitor entering the market – through to the financial and operational risks we face. Risk is all too often something we aim to avoid or react to.
However, truly agile businesses consider risk management as a core element of their business strategy. Risk management is proactive, helping you identify the possible events that could impact your business. It also increases the likelihood of successfully achieving your business objectives. From protecting your reputation through to driving resiliency, here’s how risk management can help boost profitability.

A threat to your business is typically external. Threats are one of four parts to a SWOT analysis; the others are strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities. What are your threats? They might include your peer companies’ relative strength, an industry-wide shortage of materials needed to make your products or a sluggish economy.
Unlike identifying weaknesses, which are hard to self-identify objectively, you only need to look around your world and communicate with peers and customers to recognize your threats.
