Business is risky. So how well do you understand and manage the risks you face every day? A Short Guide to Facilitating Risk Management sets out a practical approach to anticipate what could go wrong and has some great tips for risk management facilitation.
Illustrated with examples from the authors' experience and their findings from interviews and surveys, this new book differs from the usual guide to risk management in that it is not just about risk 'mitigation' but puts the emphasis on risk ownership. In their research the authors found that all too often it is tricky to find out who is being paid to really care about a particular risk.
There is also very useful guidance on facilitating risk workshops, which can provide an effective basis for managing and prioritising risk - a 'must read' for anyone who wants to help their business avoid expensive surprises.
