This Risk Management Standard is the result of work by a team drawn from the major risk management organisations in the UK - The Institute of Risk Management (IRM),The Association of Insurance and Risk Managers (AIRMIC) and ALARM The National Forum for Risk Management in the Public Sector. In addition, the team sought the views and opinions of a wide range of other professional bodies with interests in risk management, during an extensive period of consultation. Risk management is a rapidly developing discipline and there are many and varied views and descriptions of what risk management involves, how it should be conducted and what it is for. Some form of standard is needed to ensure that there is an agreed: • terminology related to the words used • process by which risk management can be carried out • organisation structure for risk management • objective for risk management Importantly, the standard recognises that risk has both an upside and a downside. Risk management is not just something for corporations or public organisations, but for any activity whether short or long term.The benefits and opportunities should be viewed not just in the context of the activity itself but in relation to the many and varied stakeholders who can be affected. There are many ways of achieving the objectives of risk management and it would be impossible to try to set them all out in a single document.Therefore it was never intended to produce a prescriptive standard which would have led to a box ticking approach nor to establish a certifiable process. By meeting the various component parts of this standard, albeit in different ways, organisations will be in a position to report that they are in compliance.The standard represents best practice against which organisations can measure themselves. The standard has wherever possible used the terminology for risk set out by the...
Business Process: One Word, Multiple Arenas of Application Criteria for a Business Process Modeling Standard State of the Industry XPDL, BPML, BPEL UML 1.x UML 2.0 BPMN – Business Process Modeling Notation ISO 9000/2000 BPDM – Business Process Definition Metamodel Microsoft: The Unknown Factor Summary MEGA’s Approach Introduction The emerging interest in the process approach is giving rise to numerous expectations and views. Whether it is Business Process Reengineering (BPR), Business Process Management (BPM), Activity Based Costing (ABC), or Business Activity Monitoring (BAM), process modeling is at the core of each of these approaches. The arrival of modeling standards is now resulting in the rationalization of process analysis methods and the creation of a knowledge base that can be shared by market participants. Substantial progress has been made in business process standardization. However, it is clear that the wide range of domain covered by business process modeling requires more that a single compacted standard. This article attempts to present the current status and the need to embrace the multiple dimensions of business process approaches. The perspectives given in this report are based on MEGA customer experience and our many years of participation in standardization groups. Business Process: One Word, Multiple Arenas Of Application Before creating a list of the modeling standards being developed, we will first address the following question: What business processes are we talking about? The term “business process” is often used in relation to very different types of projects. Of these, we are addressing the following three: The creation of a customer-oriented business management method. This means running the company via its business processes or value chains. The creation of procedures to oversee the organization’s operations. The integration of IT resources using a business process approach.

The world is at a crossroad where the developed countries are undergoing a debt deleveraging cycle and developing countries are trying to maintain growth without inflating the next bubble. Though there will be a difficult road ahead, we believe that the Asian economies with relatively better fundamentals and rising incomes will eventually emerge stronger. In the past 16 years, Asiatravel’s resilient business model has weathered the Asian Financial Crisis, SARS and natural disasters and has continued to grow. We now face increasing competition from global travel companies who want to capture a share of the burgeoning travel and tourism market in Asia. We believe our timely transformation into a total travel reservation provider, with first mover advantage into the online sale of attraction and theme parks tickets as well as broadening our distribution channel into B2B, will differentiate us from the competition. These new initiatives have impacted our bottom-line in FY2011 as we have yet to realise economies of scale to offset the increase in costs. However, we believe we are planting the seeds for sustainable long term growth and scalability of the Asiatravel platform. In the coming year, we will also focus on raising the profile of the Asiatravel.com brand, promoting our attractive 5% cash rebate customer loyalty program and forming strategic partnerships. We believe all our efforts will usher in a growth phase for your company.
We live in what experts call the ‘Asian Century’. Asia Pacific is now regaining the leading position on the global stage that it last held before the Industrial Revolution. If the current growth track continues, by 2050, Asia’s per capita income could rise 600% in purchasing power parity (PPP) matching Europe and other Western markets. Over the next two decades, perhaps some three billion Asians will enter the ranks of the global middle-class, joining what we term the ‘consuming class’ with enormous implications for the global economy 1. But it’s more than pure economic growth that will drive Asia forward at breakneck speed. Geopolitical, social and technological changes will also have a fundamental effect on the region in the future. Geopolitical and social forces are shaping new trade and business practices that differ from the often centrally-planned and protected economies that exist in much of the region. Trends such as the greater empowerment of women, the ageing of populations and the drift towards individualism are having a significant effect on entrenched attitudes and behaviours. Moreover, opportunities created by technology and infrastructure developments are profoundly affecting the way that people travel and how they interact with each other, with positive outcomes for the travel industry. This report analyses the geopolitical, social, economic and technological trends that will have the greatest impact on the travel industry in Asia Pacific over the next 20 years. Primarily, we have sought to understand the implications of changing traveller behaviour on the travel industry – comprising transportation companies (airlines, rail operators and the like), accommodation and entertainment providers and intermediaries such as travel agents. What we found were “The Big Four Effects” that we believe will help to shape the future of the travel industry. The report covers seven key markets, Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea and Singapore.
Dear reader, This ITB World Travel Trends Report 2013/14 was again commissioned by ITB Berlin from IPK International, organisers of the 21st annual World Travel Monitor® Forum, held at San Giuliano Terme, near Pisa, Italy, in late October 2013. The report covers the main trends in outbound travel demand for the first eight months of 2013 together with estimates for the full year and also contains initial forecasts for 2014, as presented at the Pisa forum (as it is widely known). In addition, it focuses on various topics and market segments that were discussed at the forum. These include the role of mobile technology and social media, the growing youth travel market, trends in the hospitality sector, the potential of Africa and perspectives on sustainability. As the following sections make clear, the world travel industry achieved good growth this year despite the uncertain world economy. Outbound travel grew by 4% in terms of trips while spending grew by 6%. Emerging markets such as China and Russia were again the top success stories with high growth rates for outbound travel while Asia and Europe performed well as tourist destinations. The outlook for 2014 is rosy with a 4-5% growth forecast by IPK’s World Travel Monitor for outbound travel as the world economy gradually improves. Emerging markets will remain the main growth drivers next year but both Europe and North America are expected to show solid growth as well. As usual, the Pisa forum was organised in co-operation with the European Travel Commission (ETC). Some 50 experts from around the world, including all regions of Europe, along with North and South America and parts of Asia-Pacific, took part. They represented international organisations, national and regional tourism organisations and associations, international research institutes and private companies from travel and tourism and related sectors. ITB Berlin is delighted to continue its close association with IPK International and the Pisa forum for the ninth consecutive year. In March 2014 at the ITB Berlin Convention, Rolf Freitag will present updated figures for 2013 as well as current forecasts for 2014. In the meantime, we wish you happy reading! Dr Martin Buck David Ruetz Rolf Freitag Vice President Travel & Logistics Head of ITB Berlin President & CEO
