Many prominent firms have ended in bankruptcy due to poor risk governance practices and history continues to repeat itself. Hence, risk management is as hot a topic as ever. The ability to deal with uncertain and unpredictable conditions hinges upon organizational risk awareness and strategic risk-taking capabilities. In the ensuing five chapters of this book, we use insights from the corporate governance, corporate finance and strategic management fields to uncover good strategic risk governance practices.
