Risk Bandits: Rescuing Risk Management from Tokenism provides directors and executives with a unique yet highly warranted insight into poorly understood organisational risk management practices. As respected business practitioners with extensive experience in meaningful risk management, authors Rob Hogarth and Tony Pooley, have teamed up to turn a clear and unblinking eye upon typical, contemporary organisational risk management and present a take-no-prisoners critique of its often shaky processes.
This book offers directors and executives a must-read critique of typical organisational risk management and proposes an alternative for grounding organisational risk management practices on a solid foundation that protects and creates value.
