Enterprises have used ERM methodologies for many years before the 2004 release of COSO's Enterprise Risk Management-Integrated Framework or the earlier version which, still holds the ERM message of:.

  • Selecting an appropriate risk framework and adapting it to the organization
  • Documenting the selection process so that it can be defended adequately
  • Developing workbook materials and display slides during the implementation process
