Over the past 25 years, there has been a growing realization that failure to implement robust risk management in an organization is likely to lead to damage to corporate finances, overall performance, reputation and share values. In extreme cases, corporate survival can be at stake. However, despite greater awareness and risk control efforts, major corporate risk failures continue to arise. The book provides some key reasons and insights into why increased regulation and ever more elaborate corporate risk 'systems' have failed, and continue to fail in many cases, to result in a proportionate increase in actual risk control. The book is predominantly a thinking aid rather than a prescription for guaranteed success in corporate risk management (which claim, in any event, would be suspect). Reference is made to suitable guides such as ISO 31000, ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management, PAS 200 Crisis Management, the revised UK Code on Corporate Governance and the EU green paper on Corporate Governance . However, as noted in Managing Risk (Waring & Glendon,1998), the author is firmly against 'salvation models' that purport to offer an easy, trouble-free route to a risk nirvana. Nevertheless, many of the chapters do contain summaries of key points intended to assist the reader's practical application to improvement of corporate risk management

Информация за автора (2004)

Rob Anderson, professor of communication and professor of international studies at Saint Louis University, teaches and learns about dialogue in campus settings, interpersonal relationships, and media institutions. His articles on these topics have appeared since 1972 in journals from a variety of disciplines. A vigorous advocate of the dialogue of coauthorship, Rob’s ten books include texts in communication theory and interviewing, as well as scholarly studies of public dialogue in contemporary journalism and intellectual history—The Conversation of Journalism (Praeger, 1994), The Reach of Dialogue (Hampton Press, 1994), The Martin Buber-Carl Rogers Dialogue (SUNY, 1997), and Moments of Meeting (SUNY, 2002). He believes the following to be therapeutic: Quiet dinners with Dona, sitting on the porch, watching soccer, Miles Davis on the stereo, and classes that talk back.
