Risk management: what can you really manage?
30-06-2010

There is so much written about risk management, itseemsthat there is nothing left to say. Conceptually, “risk” is used to denote perils, loss, dangerous occurrences, hazards, and even vulnerabilities. Those of us who had to teach management at college and university levels know that management from the time of Henri Fayol’s 14 principles in 1916 to current management teaching includes functional principles such as planning, organizing, commanding, controlling, leading, budgeting; principles in human resources like personnel administration, human motivation and relations, training, development and performance appraisals, and operational management. In other words, risk management, involves every aspect of an organization’s status and operations. But what aboutsecurity in a global supply chain? In the supply chain there are risk elements like third parties, foreign shippers, carriers, weather, foreign governmentinvolvement, disruption in the process, timing, language, cargo quality and quantity, and other forces.

TAXUD talks business
28-02-2010

Every year, a significant number of rules, regulations and other measures are adopted in ‘Brussels’ that have either a direct or an indirect effect on the EU’s 495 million citizens and 20 million businesses. The interests and opinions of these stakeholders, when adopting these rules, should be heard and taken into account. Indeed, various kinds of consultation and consultative bodies have long been – and are increasingly so – an integral part of the EU legislative process.
