From the foreword:

Having read very many of the significant books on risk management, Liz Taylor's Practical Enterprise Risk Management is undoubtedly the best that I have come across so far. Contemporary, comprehensive and current in its content, the book deals amply with the risks relating to corporate governance, conduct risk and personal ethics as part of risk culture and measurement of 'maturity' of an organization's ERM.
Mrutyunjay Mahapatra, Regional Head, UK, State Bank of India

A well-crafted guide to enterprise risk management (ERM). Taylor examines the crucial role ERM can play, how to embed it into your organization, and how to take more managed risks. Liz Taylor's 35 years of experience as a practitioner in ERM comes across in every page. Practical Enterprise Risk Management is comprehensive and practical. It is a collection of everything one needs to know to develop and apply ERM. Each chapter includes figures, tables, and case studies, further making this book a real resource in ERM.
