The most practical and sensible way to implement ERM-while avoiding all of the classic mistakesEmphasizing an enterprise risk management approach that utilizes actual business data to estimate the probability and impact of key risks in an organization, Practical Enterprise Risk Management: A Business Process Approach boils this topic down to make it accessible to both line managers and high level executives alike. The key lessons involve basing risk estimates and prevention techniques on known quantities rather than subjective estimates, which many popular ERM methodologies consist of. Shows readers how to look at real results and actual business processes to get to the root cause of key risks Explains how to manage risks based on an understanding of the problem rather than best guess estimates Emphasizes a focus on potential outcomes from existing processes, as well as a look at actual outcomes over timeThroughout, practical examples are included from various healthcare, manufacturing, and retail industries that demonstrate key concepts, implementation guidance to get started, as well as tables of risk indicators and metrics, physical structure diagrams, and graphs.
