The world of business has undergone unparalleled change in recent years as a result of dramatic social, economic and political events. Senior managers are faced with a business landscape that bears little resemblance to the world in which they began their careers and are challenged with more risks than ever before.

A new model for management in a new time, this book introduces the Risk-Based Performance Management methodology. This pioneering and practical framework enables senior management to understand, manage and control the risks facing their organizations while exploiting emerging opportunities to gain and maintain competitive advantage. By establishing the wider context of change within business, from the Credit Crunch, the upheaval of the Arab Spring, the uncertainty created by the Euro-zone Crisis and the increasing global influence of social media, the authors explain how and why a revolution is taking place in how organizations are structured, regulated and go to market. This results-focused guide to embedding risk management into strategic and operational decision-making gives executive teams the tools to align their risk-taking to strategy, enabling them to drive sustainable success while operating within appetite.
