Description - The Failure of Risk Management by Douglas W. Hubbard

An essential guide to the calibrated risk analysis approach
The Failure of Risk Management takes a close look
at misused and misapplied basic analysis methods and shows how some
of the most popular "risk management" methods are no better than
astrology! Using examples from the 2008 credit crisis, natural
disasters, outsourcing to China, engineering disasters, and more,
Hubbard reveals critical flaws in risk management methods?and
shows how all of these problems can be fixed. The solutions involve
combinations of scientifically proven and frequently used methods
from nuclear power, exploratory oil, and other areas of business
and government. Finally, Hubbard explains how new forms of
collaboration across all industries and government can improve risk
management in every field.
Douglas W. Hubbard (Glen Ellyn, IL) is the inventor of
