Book Description

June 5 2006 The Wiley Finance Series (Book 327)
Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) represents a fundamental shift in the way businesses must approach risk. As the economy becomes more service driven and globally oriented, businesses cannot afford to let new, unforeseen areas of risk remain unidentified. Currency fluctuations, human resources in foreign countries, evaporating distribution channels, corporate governance, and unprecedented dependence on technology are just a few of the new risks businesses must assess.

This accessible book, aimed at the implementers and practitioners of ERM, provides a highly structured approach so you can easily implement processes in your own organization. You'll find a number of case studies and practical examples from a variety of industries. The chapters are organized in a way that leads you through ERM implementation and include risk identification techniques, risk modelling methods, and the underlying statistics.

"...provides a thorough introduction to the subject...and places the evolving methodology in context." (Professional Manager, December 2006)

From the Inside Flap

“Enterprise Risk Management is a necessary and valuable tool for identifying, quantifying and mitigating risks across an organisation but it is also a significant undertaking in terms of knowledge and application. In these days of fiscal regulatory and political correctness this book addresses ERM in its broadest sense, providing useful reference and examples. Written in a clear and concise manner the content should be of tremendous value to anyone involved in risk, audit or corporate governance whether as an analyst or board member.”

—Robin Paris,Director, Group Risk, Nestlé

5.0 out of 5 stars A Summary of the Current Techniques Aug. 7 2006
By John Matlock - Published on
It is not generally considered that business, all business operates in an element of risk. Everything from the price of supplies to Government actions involve risk. Often this risk is absolutely impossible to predict, i.e. those who went to work at the top of the World Trade Center one September morning. And as a result the analysis of risk in ventures has taken on great urgency.

Commensurate with this has been the development of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) tools to provide a framework for managing company-wide risk. It begins with overall corporate governance which establishes guidelines for the company to operate. Various phases within the process then include such activities as identifying, evaluating, and controlling risk within those guidelines.

The book is written from a worldwide basis and discusses recent changes in various countries such as the U.K., U.S.A. and Canada. These changes brought about by spectacular busines failures such as Enron, WorldCom, and the resultant troubles of companies such as Arthur Anderson have created an environment where the executive is taking a much greater interest in the management of the company as his risk of prison increases.

Dr. Chapman has a long history of working in the risk management area, including getting his Ph.D. in that area.
