Enterprise Risk Management Plan for Happy Toys

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is an approach to manage risks in the business environment. This approach aims to incorporate the different concept of strategic planning, operations management and internal control into corporate strategy. This management approach develops methods and activities, which are utilized by firms to successfully manage risks and grab opportunities, which would help them for the accomplishment of their objectives. ERM helps in formulating strategy for risk management. This involves identifying risks and opportunities, which would affect the organization's objectives, evaluating their impact, making a strategy to counter it and overseeing its implementation.

The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) was formulated in 1985 to explore and make a report on making integrated frameworks of internal corporate control.
