Introduction This Thesis will focus on application of Risk Management Standards in enterprises. The two most prevalent standards for RM in enterprises are ISO 31000:2018 and COSO ERM. They are mainly focused on the internal structure and processes of the organization to deal with the risks. Of course, they are both explicitly taking the external context into account, but their main focus is to organize the internal context so that it manages to perform better in this external environment. ISO 31000:2018 is a centralized standard treating Risk Management in all levels simultaneously. It allows for different layers or divisions of the enterprise, but the operation remains central (the same procedures can be separately applied in different layers or divisions) with very limited flexibility. COSO ERM focuses more on strategy and its alignment with corporate core values rather than with the organizational structure and how it deals with risks. This is very important in large organizations with different entities, where flexibility is required for adaptation of each entity to its own context and of the whole organization to new challenges, keeping their core values as an anchor to changing strategies either in local or corporate level, as well as a common monitoring and control. The aim of this Thesis is to identify the prevalence of each standard in enterprises internationally and the characteristics of enterprises (sector, size, etc.) that define the preference to one or another standard. Methodology A literature review about the characteristics that define preference to one or another standard will be conducted in journal papers, grey literature, etc. This will provide guidance for characteristics to be investigated in statistical analysis as well as information about the key differences in the characteristics of the two examined standards. These characteristics will be recorded in sampling. To investigate prevalence, published Risk Management reports of enterprises or evidence from other published material or possible registries will be used. Structured research will take place through Internet search engines with keywords that will be defined like “ISO31000”, “COSO ERM”, “Risk Management Standard”, etc. Enterprises will be registered in the sample with the characteristics of preference that will be defined from literature review. Results Enterprises will be sorted according to their characteristics. Statistical analysis will follow. According to the findings, hypotheses will be developed in order to be tested. Hypotheses may include whether a characteristic (e.g. sector) defines preference to a standard or whether a combination of characteristics may affect the situation. Discussion Discussion will start with a brief presentation of the two standards and particular discussion of their differences in terms of different structure, orientation or processes. This discussion will be enhanced with findings from literature review that will set the context for comparative examination of research findings of the Thesis. The findings of the statistical analysis will be presented against the findings from literature review, indicating and explaining any differences or potential controversies. Conclusions Brief conclusions with the main findings of the Thesis will follow, along with indications for further research when identified.

TEACHER’S INSTRUCTIONS: If we have a total sample e.g. 100 businesses generally is small. However, if you have 70 large companies in Cyprus or 70 large companies in a sector from all over the world, it is good. Consider that the sample should represent a population. The more specific it is (country, industry, size, or whatever else you can think of) the smaller your sample needs to be.

The nation of squilax can produce only apples and wool.

The nation of Squilax can produce only apples and wool. If Squilax uses all its resources to produce apples, it can produce 3000 kg of apples. Alternatively, if it devotes all its resources to produce wool, it can produce 1500 kg of wool. Squilax can also assign resources between the production of these goods and locate at any point along a linear PPF.
a. Draw a production possibilities curve for Squilax(with wool on the horizontal axis).
b. What is Squilax’s opportunity cost of producing an additional kg of wool? Be sure to show supporting work for your answer.
c. What is Squilax’s opportunity cost of producing one kg of apples? Be sure to show supporting work for your answer.
d. The nation of Chase can produce only apples and wool. If Chase uses all its resources to produce apples, it can produce 3000 kg of apples. Alternatively, if it devotes all its resources to produce wool, it can produce 1000 kg of wool. Chase can also assign resources between the production of these goods and locate at any point along a linear PPF.
What is Chase’s opportunity cost of producing an additional kg of wool? Be sure to show supporting work for your answer.
e. Which region has a comparative advantage in producing wool? Briefly explain your answer.
f. Draw the two country PPF for Squilax and Chase, making sure to clearly label all important information.
g. Suppose the countries will locate on the two country PPF and it is determined that 1000 kg of wool should be produced. Show supporting work for the production choice of each country in this situation.

Putting theories into practice–

Putting theories into practice–
Please pick one or some specific concepts we learnt each week, illustrate how will you practice these concepts on a specific case that you can find. Requirement: Please provide: details of the reasons you choose a topic or concept; details of any case (personal experiences, news, articles, reports, research papers,etc.) you choose; and how the theory of decision making is reflected in this case; at least 2 (double-spaced, 12pt-font) pages not including title page, not including tables and charts (but you are welcome to include them).

Be as detailed as you can.

Think about writing a note for your employer as a manager that is of the utmost significance. You must be detailed while still being succinct. Before all else, you need to decide what the company should do and be explicit in your explanation. Compare the advantages and disadvantages of the options you’ve chosen. Use numbers to quantify these costs and benefits if they are available. Be as detailed as you can. Making assumptions for various scenarios is frequently essential. As long as you can support your beliefs, this is OK. This is not a research project. To complete the assignment, you must rely solely on the case facts and, if applicable, your professional expertise.
Please read the case and answers the questions:
1. Should Dow have lobbied against REACH? Why or why not? (40%)
2. How effective has chemical industry lobbying been? (35%)
3. If REACH passes, should Dow support or oppose the reform of the U.S. Toxic Substances Control Act to align with Europe? (25%)

Supply/Demand Analysis

Using the materials on the lumber, champagne, vanilla, bacon or cereal industry found in the Week 2 Readings (attached), complete an analysis of the lumber, champagne, vanilla, bacon or cereal industry. Make sure your analysis utilizes graphs. Consider the elasticity of demand and supply and use the articles to identify supply and demand shifters. Can you use your graphs to correctly illustrate what is happening in the industry today? Is government intervening in the market in any way? Feel free to find other sources or articles to supplement the readings.
Bring your analysis to our next class. It shouldn’t be longer than a page. Make sure your graphs are neat and well labeled!
