Implementing Enterprise Risk Management

genreBusiness (Management)

Following on the immense first volume on risk management, this book contains stories about how people actually implemented enterprise risk management at different firms. Far more anecdotal than the first book, this one is a series of stories, in effect. As with the first volume, however, there are a few pieces here that I feel could have been left out - again, the ones that feel more like ads for an advisory firm than an actual guide for the reader.

That said, with this book you gain a lot of leads necessary to implementing such an enterprise risk management regime. Understanding the lessons learned from these tales will directly assist with your own approach - it's just a matter of finding the useful signals among the noise.

Society is indeed a contract... [the state] is a partnership in all science; a partnership in all art; a partnership in every virtue, and in all perfection. As the ends of such a partnership cannot be obtained in many generations, it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.

—Edmund Burke
