Book Description

Risk management is ultimately about creating a culture that would facilitate risk discussion when performing business activities or making any strategic, investment or project decision. 

In this free book, Alex Sidorenko and Elena Demidenko talk about practical steps risk managers can take to integrate risk management into decision making and core business processes. Based on our research and the interviews, we have summarised fifteen practical ideas on how to improve the integration of risk management into the daily life of the organisation. These were grouped into three high level objectives: drive risk culture, help integrate risk management into business and become a trusted advisor. This document is designed to be a practical implementation guide. Each section is accompanied by checklists, video references, useful links and templates.

This guide isn't about "classical" risk management with its useless risk maps, risk registers, risk owners or risk mitigation plans. This guide is about implementing the most current risk analysis research into the business processes, decision making and the overall culture of the organization.

Version 3.1 updated. New foreword by Chris Mandel, SVP & Director, Sedgwick Institute and free webinars inside the book.

Book Reviews


This is excellent work and something I will share with as many risk practitioners as I can. I appreciate the time the team put in the document and the sometime novel approach that is presented. It shows both expertise as well as experience and is a must read.

Benoit Ladouceur, Rail Canada

This book is a journey across enterprise risk management; it's a gritty non-academic, hands-on and applied guide. Alexei's work is outstanding as per usual, curated as one big case study with various links to other documents the authors have published as well as breakouts to external papers and contextually relevant readings.

As Alexi points out "Risk practitioners are free to start their journey at any point in this guide", and the way the book has been crafted makes it easy for you to leap across sections of interest. There are three key chapters or objective sessions that have sub-topics which can be picked up at a glance and then read as concise activity centres in risk management.

I like it, definitely worth taking a look at.

Manoj Kulwal, RiskSpotlight

Hey Alex . Firstly, thanks for sharing this book with the risk community. Personally I found it very practical and to the point, something that is often not the case with risk literature. surely risk practitioners would benefit from it.

One feature that stood out for me is the way you have made references to your videos and various links to clarify risk management concepts to the audience.

This book is interesting. It is interesting to see risk management integrated into modern organizatiinal management practices.

Dr. Salah Hamza, Amec Foster Wheeler Energy

Well done Alexei Sidorenko, CRMP and Elena Demidenko. This eBook is a great tool to test an organisation's risk maturity, challenging the status quo and finding new ways to make risk management more effective. It is also a useful roadmap for organisations who are in the early stages of recognizing, establishing and embedding risk management.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful work on the modern thinking about Risk Management. I have felt deep resonance with your thoughts presented in this book. I am going to apply most, if not all, ideas shared in this eBook. Keep up the good work and hope to meet you in person soon.
