Risk Management: mindfulness and clumsy solutions
News | Posted on Wednesday 11 November 2015
Professor Philip Linsley has drawn upon his extensive expertise in the field of risk management to produce a thought leadership report commissioned by the ICAEW's Finance and Management faculty.
Risk Management: mindfulness and clumsy solutions, written in collaboration with author and fellow academic Dr Beth Kewell, examines the experiences of ICAEW members responsible for managing risk within their organisations, and through identifying how they both perceive and are meeting these challenges faced, offers both practical and stimulating advice that helps to inform thinking on this crucial topic. Key messages of the report include:
- Risk mindfulness is a means for enhancing risk-vigilance capabilities.
- Clumsy solutions to the 'wicked' problem of risk management can achieve greater buy-in and enhance risk management in the organisation by taking into account different risk perspectives.
- Leading on risk to influence others to share similar risk values is achievable for emotionally intelligent managers.
