Risk appetite seems to be on everyone’s lips at the moment … but what is risk appetite and how can you measure it? The Protecht Quarterly Newsletter has a neat little article which introduces the subject: http://www.protecht.com.au/media/content/brochures/newsletters/Protecht%20Quarterly%20Newsletter%20-%202011%20Q1.pdf and for a more complete guide, watch out for David Hillson and Ruth Murray Webster’s forthcoming A Short Guide to Risk Appetite due out in the first half of 2012. David Tattam of Protecht is the author of Gower Publishing’s A Short Guide to Operational Risk.
‘Whatever the future holds, one thing is sure: nothing is certain except uncertainty. Prediction is always hard, especially about the future, but the biggest risk is not taking any risk at all.’ So says Gower Author Dr David Hillson, known globally as The Risk Doctor. An international risk management consultant, and Director of Risk Doctor & Partners, he is a popular conference speaker and award-winning author on risk.
Hillson’s book Managing Risk in Projects (part of Gower’s Fundamentals of Project Management series edited by Darren Dalcher) has just been selected as a core text for the Masters in Project Management course at Drexel University in Philadelphia USA . On May 10th 2011 Hillson will be presenting a paper to the PMI EMEA Congress in Dublin, which explains ‘Risk Energetics’ drawing on the final chapter of this book.
Hillson’s latest book is Exploiting Future Uncertainty: Creating Value from Risk , and further details of his international speaking and workshop programme are available at www.risk-doctor.com
