Milliman launches enterprise risk management self-assessment platform

Companies can evaluate ERM maturity, track progress, and understand how their ERM program compares to the competition

SEATTLE, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Milliman, Inc., a premier global consulting and actuarial firm, today released Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Self-Assessment, a platform that allows companies to benchmark ERM maturity levels and processes. Built on Milliman's in-depth industry knowledge, the platform provides custom results based on a 10-15 minute questionnaire and produces a report specific to the company. This gives companies a mechanism for tracking ERM maturation over time and a way to understand how they stack up to the competition.

"As organizations continue to adapt and evolve in today's dynamic business environment, we believe that the value of ERM goes far beyond a compliance obligation, and that companies from all industries can obtain substantial business value from an integrated, collaborative ERM process," said Mark Stephens, executive director of the Milliman Risk Institute. "Traditionally companies have struggled to benchmark their ERM performance. With this platform, they can chart their progress and determine where to focus ERM efforts to maximize improvement."

The ERM Self-Assessment offers benchmarks in five key areas:

  • Governance and culture
  • Risk assessment and modeling
  • Mitigation and controls
  • Reporting and communication
  • Integration and collaboration

Milliman ERM Self-Assessment is a research effort from the Milliman Risk Institute, a non-profit enterprise risk management research & development center staffed and supported by Milliman. Access to the Milliman ERM Self-Assessment is complimentary and open to the public.
