Investing today to reduce tomorrow’s risk.
Operational risk management is the process of understanding and managing the operational risks to which the entity is inevitably subject.
Operational risk concerns activities carried out within an entity, arising from structure, systems, people, products, or processes. It is the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems, or from external events.
In the case of both risks arising from internal and external causes, organizations have a responsibility to analyze the factors, seek to prevent their occurrence, and minimize their impact should the risk become a reality.
Being deficient in risk management while continuing day-to-day operations exposes the organization to potentially very serious damage: whether it is disruption of the production process, property or operational damage, or failure to deliver promised services to customers, these eventualities must be anticipated and averted.
Today, more than ever, organizations operate in a dynamic and liquid environment that requires them to be highly adaptable and ready. This reality is applicable, albeit in different ways, in any industry or category.
Accepting the needs of the market is critical to pursuing one’s goals, but it is only by ensuring business continuity that organizations will have the strength to achieve them.
Many companies struggle to implement risk mitigation strategies and methods adequately across the board: risk management remains the preserve of a small group of managers and is relegated to a few moments of review, which often fail to implement adequate solutions.
As a result, many organizations chase ambitious goals without adequate awareness of the risks–financial, operational–to which they expose themselves. This is evidenced by the increasing numbers and reports of startups and companies experiencing unexpected and sudden meltdowns.
It is imperative that risk management be an integral part of operations.

Risk is inherently unpredictable; the ability of the risk manager is demonstrated through the creation of potential solutions capable of keeping the achievement of the set goal intact.
Empowering others by delegating what another person can best perform by virtue of his or her own abilities, communicating effectively, and making complex decisions.
Leadership is the ability to lead a given group of people toward a goal; the characteristics that are identified in leadership are communication and motivational skills. A leader's strength is directly proportional to his or her ability to best manage the team he or she chooses to form.
The implementation of the Operational Excellence methodology led to a 30% increase in NOP (from -10% to +20%) and a significant improvement in market share due to better plant utilization and improved business profitability. The results were confirmed in the years following Stratega's intervention. The work done has created a solid foundation of processes and technologies, durable and with great future potential.
