The editor, Patricia Jackson, who has wide experience in the risk management field, has brought together an impressive array of authors to look at the nexus of factors which influence risk culture and at ways that an organisation can go about strengthening culture.
--Sir David Walker
"In the wake of the financial crisis, authorities expect the leaders of financial firms to ensure there is an appropriate risk culture to maintain soundness. This means considering capacity and appetite to take risk and addressing the wider factors which affect behaviour of staff and strength of risk management. Patricia Jackson and the contributing authors tackle all these elements making this an important book for boards and senior management."
--Svein Andresen, Secretary General, FSB
"Boards need to consider the prevailing culture in an organisation and how risks are managed. This is as true of a large industrial company or utility as it is of a bank. This book draws on a wide range of expertise and perspectives to provide an accessible guide for boards and senior management on how to create effective risk governance and a strong risk culture. I believe all those involved in running companies will find it valuable."
--Sir John Parker, Chairman Anglo American PLC

Patricia Jackson's book is a major contribution to advancing our understanding of risk culture and governance. By bringing together the perspectives from leading industry directors, executives, regulators and academics, the book is a comprehensive assessment of the key factors at play as organisations face the challenge of strengthening risk culture and governance frameworks. There are insightful examples of influences on, and the outcomes of, risk culture that take an esoteric topic and make it tangible. The book provides a practical framework for thinking about how to measure the behaviours and attitudes toward risk and how to manage them.
