PREVALEAS have developed an original approach to implement its service offer : the SĀSĀ (1) methodology.

(1) SASA is a bamboo plant with the ability to bend under pressure without breaking.

This is designed to support management for :

Encouraging entrepreneurship and therefore risk taking but within limits :

Involving executive management in setting out a framework and limits for taking risks.

Setting out both process and method to better understand the company’s business environment:

Knowing how to detect warning signals which are often the underlying cause of disruptions to come
Coordinating risk analysis across the business with an appropriate methodology for consistency and efficiency
Connecting the business with its environment, sharing best practices and knowledge with peers.

Aiming to achieve operational excellence through the specific attention paid to the effective protection of company’s reputation and asset :

Protecting people (customers, colleagues) but also company’s holdings and reputation.
Executive management should be crystal clear about what has to be done, engage the whole staff to do it with rigor and check compliance from time to time.

Preparing for the worst to come :

Reviewing consequences of major disasters which could impair the company’s survival (e.g. main infrastructure, know-how, brand reputation)
Setting out an adequate insurance programme to cover any company losses and to financially support the business recovery.

Our priority is to help you :

Formalising the risk management framework and define the limits and tolerances within which risks should be taken towards achieving the business strategic objectives.

PREVALEAS have already completed this approach in a large international company.

Structuring and implementing processes and tools for a continuous assessment of the business environment. PREVALEAS’ proposal is to switch the company to a collaborative mode :

Setting up a platform for sharing data in a structured way
Involving the whole business, not only colleagues but also business partners and suppliers
Connecting with the outside world: professional networks, expert forums, media, …
Defining a method for processing all data collected to make it relevant and usable (e.g. risks, trends, alerts)

Identifying and clarifying for the company both reputation pillars and key assets and using this basis for setting out a risk prevention policy engaging the business as a whole in protecting reputation and assets in accordance with the company’s code of ethics.
Defining the framework (Organisation, process and governance) for an effective implementation of the company risk prevention policy.
Reviewing scenarios that could lead the company to fail. For each scenario, defining the relevant course of actions that could be envisaged now to ensure the business survival tomorrow.

The benefits for you :

An in-depth thinking on risk taking, involving all members of the Executive Committee.
A company well connected to its environment on topics less strategic or operational than the market, the competition or the economy, but potentially highly detrimental.
Cost-savings, such as :
– Cost impact of reducing staff injuries at work
– Reducing insurance claims and therefore any accompanying financial losses
– Insurance premium savings with a better company overall risk rating
A stronger reputation as “good employer” and a company seen as taking care of its customers’ safety
Awareness of managers about what to do in a critical situation for the business.
