The author even has a chapter on project management risks, but basically just summarizes information which is on PMBOK, without really relating it to ERM.
I had to read it for a course on ERM, but I wish I didn't have to read the entire book. Other than the first few pages, it was useless information.
This book is a MASTERPIECE! I couldn't stop reading over and over sections and chapters about a reality to come soon: the implementation of COSO-ERM as it goes nationally and globally, once it will become officially recognized as an ISO standard.
Robert Moeller, who is also the author of Brink's Modern Internal Auditing, sixth edition, revealed a high level of knowledge and expertise and he brought it down at an understandable level. Could you imagine expanding your knowledge about COSO-ERM while you enjoy reading chapter thru chapter all aspects of this multidimensional model?
Yes, Robert Moeller fulfilled his purpose to provide guidance for better understanding COSO ERM and its level of importance. I learned and understood every detailed Moeller's explanations and experiences related to this topic.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to all individual and stakeholders but not limited to senior managers, internal and external auditors, corporate boards of directors, investors, all vendors. This is the strength of COSO-ERM: includes all aspects of any business form and it also "concerns and impacts people beyond the executive offices" (Moeller, 346). After you read this book, you will be ready to move up to a higher level of understanding COSO ERM as well I am prepared to participate on an active role of this framework.
For less than $75 you will gain a deep knowledge for understanding COSO-ERM. It is WORTHY to invest on this book! I can't wait to reading more about Moeller's experience and knowledge about COSO-ERM as he could expand it on subsequent editions of this MASTERPIECE!
