Product Description

From the Inside Flap

"Risk Management is such a broad subject and varies depending onthe organization and the industry. Many standards and guidelinesaround the world try to encapsulate risk into one set of parametersbut typically suffer as they are from one particular perspective.Robert Chapman however does not conform to this single mindedapproach and provides us with a mixture of current risk managementissues, techniques and case studies to provide a broad and yetstill comprehensive view on risk management that is relevant to anyindustry sector. As such, there is something here for everyone whois in the risk management field and should be a mandatory additionto any risk manager's bookshelf."
Clayton Meteyard, Manager – Risk and Insurance,Etihad Rail, UAE

"This valuable text provides both the student and thepractitioner with comprehensive coverage of the key elements whichmust be considered in respect of Risk Management."
Dr Alistair Somerville Ford FTS, Chairman - Institute ofCommercial Management, UK

"The global financial crisis and in particular the demise ofhigh profile companies has emphasised like never before the needfor effective Enterprise Risk Management. This significantlyexpanded text will enable the reader, whether student, riskpractitioner, auditor or board member to understand both thesources of risk and a process for implementing ERM. The clear andconcise style of writing will provide a useful reference innavigating the ever expanding maze of business risk."
Steve Wilmot, Risk Manager - Leighton Contractors PTYLimited, Australia

"In today's highly volatile risk reality where ERM is the futureof risk management, Chapman's book provides an in-depth insightinto ERM. By combining theoretical and practical ERM knowledge fromboth a strategic and an operational angle, Chapman creates avaluable source of references for risk practitioners. Whileimminent risk issues are addressed, the book discusses how theserisks can be managed most effectively across the entireorganisation. The book aims to introduce risk professionals to keyERM aspects, and that's exactly what it does."
Joanna Keith, Risk Management, JP Morgan, UK

"Rob Chapman's book is modest in its title, yet is, at itsheart, one of the best guides on how to 'do' Enterprise RiskManagement, currently in print. Now completely revised to recognisethe development of ISO31000 (the International Risk Managementstandard) and recent changes in governance and business ethics,this very accessible text is a must for anyone implementing ERM,irrespective of their business sector, country orbackground."
Steve Fowler, Chief Executive, Institute of RiskManagement, UK

A business's ability to grow in the face of complex, unrelenting,ever-changing risk is the sin qua non of its competitive success.Unfortunately risk exposure is increasing unabated both indiversity and complexity at a breathtaking pace. In today's moreinterconnected business environment, where a lone trader candestroy, in a matter of hours, a reputation it took years to build,where the mere rumour of unsavoury accounting practices can send acompany’s stock price plummeting at near-lightening speed,and where the unscrupulous practices of a handful of Wall Streetbankers can bring the world financial system to its knees, the needfor a methodical, highly dynamic and all-encompassing approach toEnterprise Risk Management has never been greater.

Recommended for Risk Consultants, Instructors and Practitioners Jan. 7 2015
By Paul Vorbach, Sydney - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A well written and comprehensive guide for risk consultants, instructors and practitioners alike. Covers much more than what it's title suggests. Over 600 pages in length, this text takes the reader through a step by step exploration of each element of ERM, but further reviews significant developments in global governance. It also provides a thorough discussion of technological, project, health and safety, environmental, financial and market based risks. A very useful book.
