Strategic uncertainty: A new risk management paradigm for CFOs

Michael Raynor, Distinguished Fellow, Deloitte Research

There is a risk/return trade-off in strategy, just as there is in finance. The strategies implemented to achieve success can, in fact, result in a higher degree of strategic risk. Strategic risk arises as a result of the commitment an organisation has made to specific ways of creating value in a particular product marketplace. This commitment can be undermined by circumstances that may or may not be controllable. Addressing strategic uncertainty requires creating strategic options for the future.

How can senior finance executives effectively assess the future without relying on measuring what has happened in the past? On May 16, 2007, more than 850 executives heard Michael Raynor, Distinguished Fellow in Deloitte Research and author of The Strategy Paradox, and Howard Weinberg, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, answer this question and discuss in a Webcast presentation some leading-edge thinking around risk management as it relates to fundamental business strategy.
