Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyse the progress of risk management and the tools that can help companies to better deal with the risks they face. The research carried out on a sample of companies from different sectors offers confirmation and new conviction. The documentation collected was examined by asking four questions. Is there a specific risk management function? With which risks does it deal in particular? Which policies? What place does risk management have in the organisation? The main conclusions reached by authors have been compared with what companies do in reality. For this purpose, a sample of companies from the automotive, pharmaceutical, electronic, air transport and mass retail sectors was chosen.
