Editorial Reviews

Review

"Designed for the executive, 'Rethinking Risk' offers a good approach to streamlining the flow of data in their companies, helping them make better risk assessments in the process." --Houston Business Journal



"Koletar has served a full course meal to digest for business of any size." --Inland Empire Business Journal



Rethinking Risk is a guide that leaders in any industry or sector may want to consult.” -- The Futurist



"This book was a good reminder that opportunity for fraud is all around us. And while most people wish to operate ethically, the definition of what is right and correct is different for all. Good, definitive communication is needed to come to a common concept and standard. Everyone who reads this book will find things to consider and review in their own businesses and lives." --Quality Progress

Book Description

Risk. It’s a given factor in the operation of any organization. From corporate fraud and security issues to technological and other man-made disasters, bad things do happen. And while many businesses build elaborate defenses against these unexpected occurrences, often employing powerful technology to help detect and prevent them, most risk-assessment strategies fail to connect the dots before it’s too late.

This book, based on the author’s extensive experience analyzing the sources of corporate and organizational failure, reveals how a company can mitigate risk using available resources, including what may be the most important asset: its people. Readers will discover valuable strategies, enabling them to:

Draw “actionable intelligence” from enormous amounts of data • Quickly make better-informed assessments and decisions • Tap into the rich human sources of information that can directly alert them to signs of risk • Do a better job of anticipat ing and avoiding problems

Filled with practical, real-world insight and featuring interviews with experienced risk practitioners, this book will help any business recognize the first signs of trouble.

Format: Hardcover
Rethinking Risk is a must read for any chief executive. This book is eye-opening and filled with critically important info for senior executives. At minimum, you should read chapter five and ten and then if you must, scan the rest. I believe the top executives of any size corporation will find reading this book well worth their time. The author Joseph Koletar, retired from a top leadership position in the FBI and former Executive Director, Principal, and Director in the Fraud and Investigations practices of Ernst & Young LLP and Deloitte & Touche, know what he is talking about and he is blessed with the ability to write an interesting and easy to read book on a critically important, and often overlooked, business leadership issue.

Format: Hardcover
This book shares the author's knowledge of risk developed over years with the FBI and private industry. Most importantly, the book unveils how experience and the author's constant search for understanding and solutions can be merged into a classic in the area. I will recommend it to my students so they can see the use of data in understanding, preventing, and responding to risk.

If you own a business or work for one, you know that there is risk in every decision you make (or fail to make). This author has a very unique and valuable approach to risk management, plus many illustrative examples to drive home his points. In short, get this book!
