Organizational encounters with risk range from errors and anomalies to outright disasters. This collection of essays addresses the varied ways in which modern organizations understand, process and deal with risk. Contributions by leading experts on risk management illustrate the complex organizational and social dimension of risk management, reminding the readers that effective handling involves much more than the application of technique.
