BEYOND PLAY deals with various forms of risk and risk management and the book is a valuable guide for company and compliance officers, legal advisors and risk managers alike. It engages critically with this topic while being readable and understandable. Whilst there is a lot of information available on governance, risk and compliance as separate subjects, there is little written on the interrelation between the three components, which is known in the industry as enterprise-wide governance, risk and compliance (eGRC).
Companies have to manage their eGRC in a holistic manner in order to remain a sustainable force in the marketplace. Efforts to reduce risk can, unintentionally, be uncoordinated, disjointed or even neglected. By not implementing a more cohesive and systematic approach to managing eGRC, opportunities to benefit the company can also be missed. BEYOND PLAY offers a practical and simple approach to this rather complex topic. Notably, compliance is a very specific form of risk and where organisations are required to comply with the law; but the role of the compliance officer includes a lot more. Working with the law and regulators and applying a compliance methodology are explained to provide value to learners, compliance officers, managers, prescribed officers and directors.
Many companies ‘play’ at corporate governance, probably because it is perceived as being ‘too big’ to grasp. BEYOND PLAY will change your thinking and will help directors pave the way for implementing a Corporate Governance Framework® that can be worked with on a practical level within the enterprise wide risk management context. The systemic nature of risk means it can spread to customers, shareholders, communities and economies as the credit bubble of 2008 has proved. Equally, a company that applies a robust and intelligent approach to eGRC has a positive influence on the marketplace, the community and a nation.
BEYOND PLAY uses examples from the financial services industry; it also makes reference to South African legislation and governance codes. These references do, however, focus on international best practices so the methodologies can be universally applied.
