Risk Management: A Maturing Discipline
and the global community. Thousands of years ago, humans first learned to cultivate the wild herbs, grasses, grains, and roots that they had traditionally gathered. Concurrently, humans were creating the first settlements and domesticating wild animals. Next, humans began to grow, harvest, and stockpile grain, which helped to form the concept of ownership. Over time, humans learned to defend their possessions and their interests, to accumulate foodstuffs and other goods for the future, and to live together in tribal and other communal settings. As wealth accumulated in modest increments, rules about how to live together were needed, and the first laws to govern human interaction were developed. Thus, the beginning of civilization was launched. Walled cities, fortifications, and other measures to protect property and communities demonstrate that with increases in wealth came increased risk in a new form. Old forms, which had threatened humans for generations, were replaced by new threats. Famine and pestilence were frequent crises, and the perils of nature destroyed what communities and individuals had built. Warfare and plundering increased the threats. As a result, our ancestors created technologies, war strategies, and social and legal rules to survive. The evolution of business risks coincides with the start of trading and commerce. We do not know exactly when trading and commerce began, but their rise is clearly connected with the fact that society took advantage of specialization, which increased the capacity to produce and stockpile goods for future use. Stockpiling goods acts as a cushion against misfortune, the perils of nature, and the ravages of war. It is very probable that business, in the form of trading and commerce, was one of the first active efforts of society to deal with risk. Artifacts unearthed by archaeologists prove that those early businesspeople developed techniques for dealing with risk. Two major techniques are noteworthy and should be mentioned. First, in 3000 B.C., the Babylonian civilization, with its extensive trade relations, exhibited a highly developed bureaucracy and trading sector with a monetary and legal system. One consequence of the concept of private property was the evolution of a market economy, but until the innovation of money was introduced, commerce was on a barter basis. There is some debate regarding the exact moment when money was first used, but its use revolutionized commerce, private property, and the accumulation of wealth. It provided a new means of stockpiling resources, and thus had an important impact on risk management. With the introduction of money as a storage medium, wealth could be held in the form of tangible property or as an asset that could be exchanged for tangible properties. Physical assets could be acquired even by those who did not have financial assets, provided someone was willing to lend the money, which was the innovation of credit. This created risk for the lender, who was compensated by charging interest for loans.
The legal system was the second innovation that revolutionized society. Laws or rules originated as tribal conventions, which became more formalized over time. One of the first formal legal codes was established by Hammurabi between 1792 and 1750 B.C. There were no other major legal system innovations until the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, so we can fly over the periods of the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman empires, feudalism, the rise of the merchant class, and mercantilism. The beginning of the Industrial Revolution was characterized by two major events. Modern capitalism emerged after a transition period over several centuries, during which the conditions needed for a capitalistic market society were created. Among these conditions were formalized private ownership of the means of production, profit orientation, and the mechanisms of a market economy. With expanding industrial and economic activity, new organizational forms were needed to raise large amounts of capital and build production capacity. The corporation limited individual risk and leveraged production, distribution, and capital resources. The earliest form of shareholder organization, the joint stock company, appeared at the end of the seventeenth century. The investors pooled their funds, allowing multiple investors to share in both the profits and risks of the enterprise. This feature was equivalent to partnerships and other joint forms and was not an innovation. But the corporation addressed risk in a different way, by limiting the liability of the investors based on the amount invested. From a legal standpoint, a corporation is an artificial construct or artificial person, whose competencies and responsibilities are separate from those of the investor-owners (with exceptions). The Industrial Revolution created new sources of risks. The application of steam power to the production process and transportation replaced old threats with the new risks that accompany advancing technologies. With the emergence of the age of information technology, inherent risks include business system problems, fraud, and privacy issues, which can all interrupt the day-to-day operations of a business. Although the term risk management originated in the 1950s, Henry Fayol recognized its significance earlier.1 Fayol, a leading management authority, was influenced by growing mass production in the United States, and the existence of giant corporations and their management challenges. In 1916, he structured industrial activities into six functions, including one called security, which sounds surprisingly like the concept of risk management:
The purpose of this function is to safeguard property and persons against theft, fire and flood, to ward off strikes and felonies and broadly all social disturbances or natural disturbances liable to endanger the progress and even the life of the business. It is the master s eye, the watchdog of the oneman business, the police or the army in the case of the state. It is generally speaking all measures conferring security upon the undertaking and requisite peace of mind upon the personnel.2
