Variation
• There was a lot of variation in definitions and
structure across Councils.

the pursuit of an unsuccessful business plan.

making poor business decisions, from the
substandard execution of decisions, from
inadequate resource allocation, or from a
failure to respond well to changes in the
business environment. Business Dictionary.com
Operational Risk
• Probability of loss occurring from the internal
inadequacies (could also be a failure to
identify a risk - RC) of a firm or a breakdown
in its controls, operations, or procedures. Business
