Effective risk management allows opportunities to be maximized and uncertainty to be minimized. This guide for emerging professionals provides a comprehensive understanding of risk management with tools, tips and tactics on how to offer expert insights and drive success in an ever-changing area, covering everything from Covid-19 and digitization to climate change. Fundamentals of Risk Management is a detailed and comprehensive introduction to commercial and business risk for students and risk professionals. Completely aligned with ISO 31000 and the COSO ERM Framework, this book covers the key principles of risk management and how to deal with the different types of risk organizations face. The frameworks of business continuity planning, enterprise risk management, and project risk management are covered alongside an overview of international risk management standards and frameworks, strategy and policy. The revised sixth edition includes brand new content on trends such as cyber risk, black swan events and climate risk. It has been fully updated to place the emphasis on seeing risk as 'positive' rather than a 'constant threat', and establishes that risk is different in a digital/VUCA age. Additionally, it considers in detail the impact of the climate crisis and its effect on risk management activities. Further updates from the previous edition include brand new case studies on the failure of Arcadia, HBO's bankruptcy and Boohoo's issues with modern slavery, this book provides a full analysis of changes in contemporary risk areas including digital risk management, risk culture and appetite, supply chain and statutory risk reporting. Supporting online resources include lecture slides with figures, tables and key points from the book

One of the best online booksellers out there.

I always check Booksplease before looking at other online sellers because in many instances, particularly with older titles, their books are a lot cheaper. There is added postage, but when you add this to the overall cost you are still spending less than you would otherwise pay elsewhere.
