Abstract

Public administrations face the challenge of implementing risk management in the public sector and identifying their role in the development of a risk culture. Many organisations underestimate the significance of culture in risk management. Culture shapes perceptions, awareness and actions of employees towards the management of uncertainties. Interviews with managers and academics showed that cultural factors such as leadership, values, personnel policies and organizational learning strongly influence risk management.
