I am glad to announce my new blog 'Business Management Controls' containing methods, policies, procedures, techniques, audit programs, checklists, articles and tools about Enterprise Governance, Risk, Compliance, Strategic, Operational, Finance, IT and other internal corporate controls and how all of these improve the enterprise governance, strategic and operational aspects of private and public-sector organizations in all business functions of the modern organizations and enterprises.
Hi. Welcome to Riskczar's Blog (pronounced risk-zar). I chose this name because the czar is often seen as a high-level special adviser. I see myself as your high-level special adviser with almost 20 years of experience in financial, operational and enterprise risk management (ERM), and process improvement. I love this stuff.
I am not a quant, an academic or an accountant but just a guy who likes writing about risk management in a way that anyone would understand. You will not see any Greek letters or equations in my posts because that side of risk management doesn't interest me too much either nor is that the audience I am trying to reach. I prefer the lighter side and at times, I try to make you laugh as well.
