Abstract

‘A ship is safe in a harbor – but this is not what ships are made for’.

(William G.T. Shedd, American theologian, 1820–1894)

Risky scenarios are something many people try to avoid. But you will find yourself in situations when you have to face risks, especially in business. To better control these kinds of scenarios, large organisations began to implement a new kind of operation: risk management.
