We advocate for two principles in our work, undertaken on behalf of GoC clients:

1.     Risk management, planning and performance management should not be seen as separate domains, but must be aligned and integrated to add-value and drive results, and

2.     Risk information has no value on its own, but only gains value through its use - to support decision-making and advance activities and actions directed toward core goal attainment.
