Imagine a football team without an inspiring coach, where none of the players know what plays will be run, or where communication is so bad that each player develops and runs his own plays independent of the others. Sure, opposing players might be blocked, wide receivers would possibly run down the field, the quarterback would probably throw a pass or two or hand the ball off to a running back, and maybe even a touchdown would be scored. But would the team’s hope of winning games and becoming champions of the sport ever be realized? Of course not! A successful team must have a coach who leads, great communication among its players, and an understanding by all that the actions or inactions of individuals can affect the overall success of the group. These same principles can be applied to the practice of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). Read more about Yuma County’s journey here.
