RISK ASSESSMENT – PROPERTY MILLIONAIRES

Introduction

Business organisations operate in an open environment. In line with the open systems
theory, business organizations are therefore exposed to different internal and external factors
that influence their operations and expose them to risks (Dorfman, 2007). An optimal
performance masks the possibilities of risks. According to Simons (1999), it is during high
performance that businesses fail to discern the risks they are exposed to. One of the important
tools business can use to assess their risk is the risk exposure calculate that assess risks in
three dimensions of growth, culture, and information management. This report will assess risks
facing Property Millionaires, a company with 100 staff located in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane
and Adelaide. Using the risk exposure calculator, the report will assess the risks facing the
company in the three dimensions and conclusion how risky the business is from the aggregate
scores.
