What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"...the text presents ten easy steps and a strategic framework to organize and develop relevant and practical risk management plans. These steps fall neatly into three traditional stages of strategic risk management, and the practical formulaic framework accommodates a breath of information. The book covers, strategic, operational, and tactical needs, decision-making processes, and the prediction and probability of results. It is supported by a Risk Navigator website that supplies tips and a user guide for the software and keeps information up to date."
