Just Published… Practical Guide to Managing the Multiple Dimensions of Risk

Last year our Senior Partner, Robert Toogood, was invited by Dr David Hillson, the international risk thought-leader aka The Risk Doctor, to contribute a chapter on governance, risk and compliance (GRC) for a new book on multi-dimensional risk management being published by Kogan Page in 2016.

The book, “The Risk Management Handbook: A Practical Guide to Managing the Multiple Dimensions of Risk”, edited by Dr David Hillson, has just been published; Kogan Page describe it as follows:

Risk management is dynamic, with new risks continually being identified and risk management techniques adapting to new challenges. The Risk Management Handbook gives a clear snapshot of the current state of play in the risk management landscape, and a look ahead to the key emerging issues in the field. Drawing together leading voices from the major risk management application areas – from GRC to supply chain risk, operational risk to cyber risk – this edited collection showcases best practice in each discipline and provides a succinct and coherent picture of the field as a whole. Part One surveys these crucial application areas and provides a broad integrative framework for the differing contexts within which risk management is undertaken. Part Two explores emerging issues and techniques, from risk-based thinking to communicating uncertainty.
