Organizations face challenges in adapting their current business and operational activities to dynamic contexts. Successful companies share a common characteristic of dealing with the emergent risks and threats in responses that generate viable solutions.

Strategic risk management (SRM) is a multidisciplinary and rather fractured field of study, which creates significant challenges for research. This shortform book provides an expert overview of the topic, providing insight into the theory and practice.

Essential reading for strategic management researchers, the authors frame the fundamental principles, emerging challenges and responses for the future which will also provide valuable insights for adjacent business disciplines and beyond.


This book performs an important service to the field of risk management by bringing together research spanning the various disciplines that have taken an interest in the field. In doing so, it advances our understanding of enterprise risk management and clarifies the concept of strategic risk management.The book provides an important base on which future development of research in strategic risk management will rest.
