The risks business enterprises face – and how best to manage them

In today's rapidly changing world, every business enterprise is constantly confronted with a variety of risks arising out of evolving technology, changing customer tastes, new competitive conditions, variable interest and currency rates, etc.

Companies which are unable to effectively manage the risks they face can swiftly lose their competitive edge, or even go bankrupt. And size is no guarantee against either. Two recent examples of huge companies going under were the energy giant, Enron, and the famous retailer, Kmart. Which is why corporations all over the world are recognizing the importance of enterprise risk management (ERM).

Traditionally, risk management has been looked at as something for finance professionals to deal with. This is a dangerous fallacy. This book highlights that ERM is, in fact, best handled as a strategic orientation with an integrated rather than a piecemeal, functional approach. This book both pinpoints the important risks faced by business organizations and provides a framework for anticipating and dealing with them in a systematic and coordinated way. Starting with a basic understanding of risk, the book is packed with relevant contemporary ERM know-how and offers rich insights for managing different types of business risks. A large number of case studies illustrate the application of various risk management strategies and techniques.
