Knowledge Building

Risk Leadership is a concept emerging from many connected and unconnected fields of study—indeed it could be said that Risk Leadership has the potential to be a unifying concept across subject areas such as compliance, governance, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, resilience, and strategic management. This view does present some challenges, inasmuch as critical research and practice insights arise from many different fields. The intention of our Knowledge Building is to present a review of books, papers, documents, and case studies that we consider to have special relevance to the advancement of Risk Leadership thinking and practice
