Why risk analysis?
From world disruptors such as climate change, market fluctuations, and global pandemics to low-level constant shifts in business models, customer demographics, and employee expectations, the speed of change is increasing.
Strategic risk analysis is a technique used to identify and assess internal or external factors that could jeopardize the success or progress of a project, initiative, or entire organization. This includes determining the likelihood of a risk occurring, the extent of its potential impact, and balanced risk mitigation.
Explore risks and early signals of change
Monitor your corporate landscape to recognize future disruptions early. Use the ITONICS AI-enabled signals feed to scan millions of data points from news, patents, publications, and RSS Feeds. Cut through the noise with auto-filter feeds. Track developments over time to adapt to changing environments early on.
Reduce the human effort required to spot and monitor important risks. Save time by allowing distributed teams to scout on the same system and build cross-functional innovation ecosystems. Identify risks that have potential impact—short, mid, and long term.
Evaluate the impact of risks with your teams
Find answers to the most pressing questions:
- How much do the identified risks impact my business - and when?
- How significant are the underlying factors?
- Do we have to prioritize the risks differently?
- How do we assess them in relation to our organization?
Get internal or external experts to rate risks on the ITONICS Radar and gain perspective with visualizations based on the rating results. Getting different perspectives helps validate insights and informs your mitigation strategy.
Map dependencies to understand where disruptions might arise and impact your business. Detect emerging risk areas, blind spots, and opportunity spaces.
Balance mitigation and opportunity
Spotting potential risks is not enough. Decision makers need to mitigate potential threats proactively. Data-driven business decisions become possible when risks are analyzed, evaluated, and constantly monitored and updated. Combine risks, trends, emerging technologies, and internal capabilities in different scenarios on a Matrix view to help you prioritize the right actions and their timing.
Activate internal teams to get involved in ideating for your next big transformation that will respond to future risks and opportunities. Use ITONICS Campaigns to source idea submissions from internal and external submitters. Create the space for win-win innovation collaborations between business units and external partners, and startups.
Build viable innovation roadmaps and steer strategy execution
To reduce the impact, severity, and probability of risks, you need to define, implement, and track a set of mitigation strategies and counteractions.
- What can be done about the risks?
- What are suitable measures to avoid, transfer, eliminate or share the risks or reduce them to an acceptable level?
- When do we implement the identified strategies?
- How can we better prepare and protect our business in the future?
