It is not aimed at people hoping to get a qualification in Risk Management, or to get their business accredited with ISO 9001.  There again, it might be a good place to start.

If you think Risk Management is a bit of meaningless management-speak, this is the book for you.  The World is full of risks and they all need managing.  In fact we all manage risks all the time whether well or badly.  Every decision we make involves making some assessment of the risks involved.  Risk Management is simply an attempt at doing it more explicitly, scientifically and, hopefully, effectively.

In this book you learn more about the Why and the How of Risk Management, and you will find some examples of how not to do it.    I have tried to explain it in everyday language and show how it can be applied in a small business to your advantage.

If you read my newsletter, or my blogs or articles, regularly, and I wish more people did, you may find many of the chapters look familiar, but some have been rewritten and others are totally new, especially the “how to” section.

Does your Business Plan amount to throwing the dice and seeing what you get?  Take control!  Load the dice!
