When it really is a matter of life and death, how do risk management strategies stand up to the pressure?  And do these radical situations have a practical relevance for risk management policies in today’s business and financial worlds?

 

Managing Risk in Extreme Environments looks at real-life examples and case studies in order to extract risk management practices that have been tested in adverse conditions and shown to succeed.  Duncan Martin interviews experts who have first-hand experience managing crises we know well: the SARS outbreak, the flooding of New Orleans, insurgent attacks in Iraq, the nuclear reactor explosion in Chernobyl.  Distilling risk management lessons from these and other emergencies, he shows how these lessons can be transferred to the less extreme operational environments in which most of us work.
