Taking on risk is simply a part of business. But new developments in technology and communication make risk management simpler and more effective than ever before. Using examples from companies such as Home Depot, Airbus, Boeing, and Nokia, author John Hampton takes a fresh look at one of the hottest topics in business today: weighing business opportunities against the possibilities of loss. Fundamentals of Enterprise Risk Management does this by introducing innovative new concepts such as hierarchical risk structures, alignment of risks with the business model, creation of a central risk function, and the role of an ERM knowledge warehouse. Readers will learn how to recognize both internal and external exposures; understand important concepts such as risk mapping and risk identification; recognize the weaknesses of current ERM systems; align risk opportunities with their organization's business model; and stay in line with Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Featuring enlightening case studies and practical exercises, this essential book shows readers how they can implement ERM the right way to experience unapparelled successes at their organizations.
