Abstract: Macro environments acquire ever more significance in the growing business worlds. Whereas the industrial enterprises assume greater controls in managing their internal environs, the evident responsibility of governments is to regulate the business surrounding risks, to optimise the external environments, and to deliver poses that are conducive to business. In such context, this paper presents a specialised approach - Risk Leveling - which embraces a focused risk management concept as well as an explicit risk management methodology. Risk Leveling accentuates upon organised and efficient consumption of available resources to achieve balanced risk postures in the business contagious environment. The ultimate intent of Risk Leveling is not only to cut the risks to business acceptability limits but to also ensure that mutual risk parities are conserved. Such intent is pursued through an organised procedure which employs a mix of analysis tools and philosophies including the AHP and the ALARP. By settling the contextual risks to business acceptability bounds, Risk Leveling aims to facilitate the regimes in regulating the macro business environments for wellbeing of business.


Keywords: risk management; macro business environment; Risk Leveling; organised approach.
