Corporate Risk Management: An Organisational Perspective

Front Cover
Corporate Risk Management analyses, compares and contrasts tools and techniques used in risk management at corporate, strategic business and project level and develops a risk management mechanism for the sequencing of risk assessment through corporate, strategic and project stages of an investment in order to meet the requirements of the 1999 Turnbull report.  

By classifying and categorising risk within these levels, readers will learn how to drill down and roll-up to any level of the organisational structure, establish the risks that each project is most sensitive to, and implement the appropriate risk response strategy - to the benefit of all stakeholders.
