Risk-based management is a serious approach and a philosophy that takes risk as major consideration while managing any endeavor throughout its life cycle. Risk-based management increases the probability of success in achieving organizational and individual objectives.
It simply means that risk should be the main contemplation by anyone while keeping an eye to achieving objectives. Risk is a primary concern in pursuit of a goal. Risk is not only a factor or featured element of management. It is the main character at play. Risk-based management gives importance to objectives. Failing to mitigate the risk means failure to meet the objective/s.
Each chapter is an open-minded appraisal of risk, its concept, its approaches, its visual, basis, assumptions, methodologies, tools, and applications. Risk attributes were revisited and explained in a more vivid, flexible and friendly manner.
I want to talk about risk and risk-based management with someone fresh from high school and one deep in the fields, yet coming to the same understanding because this book has bridged understanding. One must remember the idea of risk like a picture. If the book manages to accomplish that, then I consider the book a success
