The panel of judges was made up of 14 risk management professionals and academics across four countries including – Nigeria, United Kingdom, United States and Denmark.

According to NRA Co-chair, Mr. Tunde Popoola:

“This year’s award recognises organisations that have successfully integrated and promoted risk management culture and practices. The decision-making process is merit driven and a new metric was introduced to attest the evidence of success made.

This changed the outcome significantly as quiet a lot of companies applied but failed on the part of providing evidence.

All 14 judges participated in the assessment process and ranked all entries on response provided on – what was done by the organization in integrating and promoting risk management culture and practices; when it was done; how it was done; what was achieved and the final metric of evidence of result which carried 30 per cent of the entire rating. To win, any organisation must score a minimum of 70 per cent.”
