All: good discussion topic! My answer and comments below :

1 - yes 

2- at least two times a year with a leadership team to review progress, and one owner per risk to ensure progress and execution of agreed actions 

3 - not really, however they have assessed the process with consultants

4- each risk has  a template with objective, team members , actions, etc. This also includes KPIโ€™s for each risk. Food safety includes audits, complaints and plant risk profile. New and proactive KPIs such as program implementation %

5- partially. They assess compliance .. some FS knowledge

comments: a proactive approach is needed. For instance, we should   Measuring : CAPA closure % and its effectiveness, culture and behaviors, FS capital approval and execution. Technology to track execution, maturity of the programs is key
