Philip Linsley was invited to present on ‘Risk and Culture’ at the Institute of Risk Management 2012 conference held in Manchester in April 2012. The Institute of Risk Management is one of the world’s leading institutes for risk professionals with members in over 50 countries. The conference attracts delegates from all industries including financial services, manufacturing, insurance and the public sector.
Philip’s research on risk and risk management includes work on how culture affects risk. Drawing on ideas associated with cultural theory he has examined risk and culture in diverse settings including psychiatry and the banking sector.
The main idea underlying cultural theory is that organisations are made up of competing cultures, each of which has a different approach to risk and risk management. Having an understanding of what these cultures are and how their risk perspectives differ is important. Ultimately, organisations should strive to ensure that each of the cultures has a voice in the risk management process as this will result in better risk-related decisions.
