Using examples from companies such as Home Depot, Airbus, Boeing, and Nokia, Fundamentals of Enterprise Risk Management takes a fresh look at one of the hottest topics in business today. Showing readers in charge of monitoring operational exposures in corporations, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies how they can best determine and balance opportunities against the possibilities of loss, this book provides clear strategies to help readers:

The book introduces innovative new concepts such as hierarchical risk structures, alignment of risks with the business model, creation of a central risk function, and the role of an ERM knowledge warehouse. Featuring enlightening case studies and practical exercises, this essential book shows readers how they can implement ERM the right way at their organizations.From the Inside Flap:
Anyone could see that offering exotic mortgages to people with lackluster credit histories was a risky proposition. But when the default rate started its inevitable rise, almost no one imagined that large, esteemed financial institutions would actually collapse. What happened? How is it that so many organizations completely failed to understand their risk exposures? Didn’t they have risk management systems in place to reduce those exposures?
One thing the financial crisis clearly shows, says the author of Fundamentals of Enterprise Risk Management, is that traditional approaches to risk management are a failure. America’s financial companies kept a narrow, inward focus on limiting the impact of a web of maddeningly complex risk exposures. But the job of enterprise risk management (ERM) is not to centrally control risk, but to accurately identify it—constantly scanning the horizon for changing conditions and monitoring for internal weaknesses—and to share the information widely.
Fundamentals of Enterprise Risk Management offers an expansive yet focused approach that will radically improve your ability to recognize risk and minimize loss, as well as understand the level of risk that’s required to pursue opportunities.
Using examples from Home Depot, Boeing, Airbus, Nokia, and many other companies, the book’s insights, strategies, and unique tools help you:
● Identify your organization’s exposure to a multitude of business, financial, and hazard risks—then visualize risk relationships using innovative new applications, such as Riskonnect®.
● Recognize hard-to-see internal risk exposures, such as weaknesses in your strategy, subcultures that can destroy your goals, and life cycle risks for different lines of business and operating units.
● Assign “risk owners” for every category of risk—thus eliminating the excessive complexity faced by a single risk manager—and align risk accountability with the organization’s business model.
● Understand Nassim Taleb’s concept of “black swans”— unpredictable crises that seem to upend risk management strategies—and learn how seemingly random events are not always unexpected.
● Examine how companies such as AIG blindly exposed themselves to excessive risk—and how a knowledge warehouse would have clearly illuminated the risk exposures and possibly circumvented the 2008 financial crisis.
● Focus on the upside of risk and seize opportunities that are attainable only by informed decisions on the acceptance of risk.
Comprehensive, refreshingly clear, and packed with the latest insights from the field, Fundamentals of Enterprise Risk Management is essential reading for anyone responsible for monitoring risk exposures, in any setting—corporate, nonprofit, or government.
