He offers a breadth of analytical skills, risk management and business intelligence experti...

Editorial Reviews

"The book offers a detailed and thorough analysis of risk, and a new approach to analyze and approach the mitigation of risks. The techniques described are well worth considering by large organizations utilizing complex systems that evolve over time to adapt to changing conditions." (G. R.
