Risk management is a universal issue that is common to governments, public bodies, corporations, institutions and charities - regardless of their size or sector.
All organizations face risks. Some will be well known and managed; others will be ignored or poorly handled. It is unlikely for all risks to be identified, however it is important organizations create a framework that:
- Manages risks that are identified;
- Provides a structure for dealing with risks that emerge which have not been identified;
- Creates a more resilient organization, enabling it to respond to future risks in a time of need.
Whilst ISO 31000 provides a foundation, this book offers a full and considered approach that can be applied by those wanting to expand their existing management system to an enterprise-wide risk management system, and by those looking at risk management in isolation.
The book is based on the international standard ISO 31000 and utilizes support documents such as PAS 99 and IEC/ISO 31010. To help those readers who are new to this subject a simple case study is used from time to time to give some appreciation of what is involved.
Risk and its effective management is the subject of significant numbers of publications and academic work. Whilst these approaches have much merit they are often perceived to be far too complex for the smaller organization and it is the small to medium-sized businesses at which this book is primarily aimed at.
This book is intended to help organizations survive and thrive in an ever changing world, a world where those organizations that do not embrace risk management may fail.
