Ismail, T. H., "Board Involvement in Risk Management Practices: Evidence from Saudi Arabia Banks", Globalization of Financial Institutions: Springer, 2013. Abstract

This study bridges the gap between theory and practice of risk management in banks incorporated in Saudi Arabia. The main objective of this study is to investigate the risk management process to assess the level of involvement of boards in risk management practices (RMPs).

This study surveys representatives from banks to elicit their opinion regarding the characteristics of an efficient risk management process, the four aspects of risk management practices; understanding risk management (URM), risk identification (RI), risk assessment and analysis (RAA) and risk monitoring and control (RMC), as well as the role played by boards in risk management (RM).

The results suggest that banks in Saudi Arabia have an efficient risk management process and an adequate understanding of risk management and a system for risk identification. Additionally, there is a high level of board’s involvement in assessing, analyzing, monitoring and controlling risk efficiently, where they are somewhat reasonably efficient in managing risk, hence, URM, RM and RMC are the most influencing factors in RMPs.

This study may have practical implications for boards in banks incorporated in Saudi Arabia by explaining the adoption of certain risk management strategies, and helping them understand how risk management behavior can maximize operating performance. In addition, it would help regulators and policy makers to develop a coherent and acceptable set of risk management tools and techniques.

Journal Article
Ismail, T., and M. Al-Thaoiehie, "A Balanced Scorecard Model for Performance Excellence in Saudi Arabia's Higher Education Sector", International Journal of Accounting, Auditing and Performance Evaluation, vol. Vol.11, No.3/4, pp. 255-280, 2015. Abstract

This paper’s main objective is to introduce a Balanced Scorecard Model (BSC) which fits Saudi Arabia’s higher education institutions. We used questionnaires to obtain the opinions of respondents of public and private Saudi universities on the suggested key performance indicators (KPIs) derived from using the dimensions of the BSC of Kaplan and Norton (1992) with adaptations. The frequencies of recommended KPIs provided the basis for discussion. The findings revealed that most KPIs, recommended by respondents, were related to the customer and internal business process perspectives, whilst they did not recommend most indicators related to the learning and growth financial perspectives. Furthermore, most indicators had significant differences according to the type and age of the universities.

This paper extends previous studies on measuring performance excellence in the higher education sector by considering a set if KPIs which fit educational systems in emerging economics. The findings would help the management of Saudi universities as well as policy makers in the Saudi Ministry of Higher Education to: (i) define the possibility of adopting a BSC model to drive performance; and (ii) identify the need to a benchmarking of KPIs which fit both public and private universities.
