Mapping and improving operational risk management

Mapping and improving operational risk management

When paired with a proper understanding of processes and the control system, risk mapping is a powerful analysis and decision-making tool. It is therefore an integral part of the performance management system.  Since the Basel II reform, operational risk has been included in the calculation of regulatory capital, with a proportional impact on the quality of its procedures and its monitoring and evaluation system. Establishing best practices to reduce operational risk was our client’s aim.


The Basel II requirements have propelled operational risk to the same level as credit risk or market risk.
Analysing business processes and cross-referencing them with the different types of operational risks made it possible to identify, evaluate, rank and manage the risks inherent in our client’s activities.



Rationalise processes enabling new productivity gains, and improve quality and thus brand image among clients, all in a highly restrictive regulatory context and with an eye on change management.
