The primary objective that KNPC and KAFCO wanted to realize was to create an overall and more transparent view on their risks across their respective companies. Mr. Ousama H. Shammas, Manager Functional Excellence Group at KNPC stated, "We wanted to develop common corporate approaches, policies and processes to manage all the risks facing KNPC in the most efficient and effective manner.â Mr. Basil Al-Naqi, ERM Project Leader, also stated âBWise was selected as KNPCâs solution because they can serve best in the needs we have.

BWise was implemented in Kuwait within seven months; the roll-out included thirty four departments, 6,000 employees, covering the complete KNPC and KAFCO organizations. The implementation included the uploading of KNPCâs risk register and complete end-user training. BWise consultants were able to perform the implementation this quickly because KNPC was well prepared. Together with Accenture, KNPC defined a clear project approach and objectives which enabled BWise to implement the system efficiently.
