What is a Risk?
Every company takes advantage of the opportunities that present themselves. However, this is not possible without risks. A balanced relationship is important. Risks threatening a company's existence must be identified and eliminated in good time. A systematic process is very important for this. This should recognize and evaluate risks early on. Such a process must be established in the company accordingly.
A distinction is made between external risks (environmental influences and general conditions - intensification of competition, economic changes, changes in the market situation) and internal risks (caused by own decisions and actions in the organisation, in management and in the provision of services). The risks can be directly controlled and influenced by operational measures and decisions.
