Disruption, over-regulation and cyber threats are typical of the major risks that management has to cope with. But until now there hasn’t been a formula to contain them.

In The Risk Mitigation Handbook, Kit Sadgrove provides practical and actionable steps you can take to minimise the threats to your business. With over 160 checklists and a wealth of revealing case studies, this is the first book to recommend detailed action plans. After reviewing each risk, the author provides a list of measurable tactics necessary to neutralise the threat. The book lists a comprehensive range of risks that organisations face today, with a special emphasis on business strategy, security and people management. Sadgrove also takes a sharp look at how to reduce the risk of operational failure, supply chain weakness and regulatory compliance.

Unlike previous books on enterprise risk, The Risk Mitigation Handbook sets out detailed solutions rather than generic risk management theories. The book has been carefully edited to provide fast information for the busy senior manager. Stripped back to the bare essentials, The Risk Mitigation Handbook gives the reader bullet points and strategies that give you the information you need to mitigate hundreds of risks.
