In this chapter, I present the development of enterprise risk management (ERM) in Poland from the policy and the organizational point of view. I examine the impact of ERM research on practice, and the professionalization of ERM, being facilitated by professional bodies and associations, and promoted by the evolvement of principles and practices. At the organizational level, I analyse and present the effects of laws and regulations on ERMs development, the advantages and disadvantages of decentralized corporate governance. While Poland is considered to be behind other European countries in leveraging the value creation aspects of ERM, I see evidence at the individual firm level that organizations in different industries are actively working with their version of ERM to realize organizational benefits, and that certain dimensions of integration can still be reached even in the absence of some of the formalized structural components of ERM to create value for the firm.
