Special Issue on: "Integration of Risk Management and Corporate Budgeting"

Guest Editors:

Corporate objectives are the reference point for the assessment of most business risks. In addition, a company’s budget may be considered as a stochastic variable influenced by a variety of risk factors following different distribution functions. Thus, we should not limit corporate budgets to the expected value but should also consider the probability and volume of possible deviations as chances and risks.

Looking at the interfaces between risk assessment, risk management and corporate budgeting, the special issue will focus attention on the following questions:

  • What are the potentials for an intensified integration of risk management and corporate budgeting?
  • How can a company integrate assessing and managing risks and corporate budgeting?
  • Which problems arise from an intensified integration and how are they dealt with?
  • What are possible effects of business risks on corporate performance measurement and management?
Subject Coverage
