9780566087981: Understanding and Managing Risk Attitude

Despite many years of development, risk management remains problematic for the majority of organizations. One common challenge is the human dimension, in other words, the way people perceive risk and risk management. Risk management processes and techniques are operated by people, each of whom is a complex individual, influenced by many different factors. And the problem is compounded by the fact that most risk management involves people working in groups. This introduces further layers of complexity through relationships and group dynamics. David Hillson's and Ruth Murray-Webster's Understanding and Managing Risk Attitude will help you understand the human aspects of risk management and to manage proactively the influence of human behaviour on the risk process. The authors introduce a range of models, perspectives and examples to define and detail the range of possible risk attitudes; looking both at individuals and groups. Using leading-edge thinking on self-awareness and emotional literacy, they develop a powerful approach to address the most common shortfall in current risk management: the failure to manage the human aspects of the process. All this is presented in a practical and applied framework, rather than as a theoretical or academic treatise, based on the authors' shared experiences and expertise, rather than empirical research. Anyone involved in implementing risk management will benefit from this book, including risk practitioners, senior managers and directors responsible for corporate governance, project managers and their teams. It is also essential reading for HR professionals and others interested in organizational or behavioural psychology. This second edition is updated to strengthen the understanding of individual risk attitudes and reinforce what individuals can do to manage those risk attitudes that are leading them away from their objectives. For people who want to embrace this subject, the book highlights ways forward that are proven and practical.

Review:

' Managers looking to move to higher levels of risk management maturity in their organisations will find much insight and guidance in this innovative book.' -- UKexcellence. July 2007

'As a way to approach business, the book is well worth a read by managers; whether they seek to manage change in their organization, be a leader getting more from staff, set goals or simply avoid failure. In a couple of words, the keys seem to be optimism and self-awareness.' -- Professional Security, May 2007

'It is a serious study of how people handle risk in different scenarios and provides a genuine insight into how people behave in risk situations.' -- Managing Risk, Summer 2007
