How much risk should we take? A Short Guide to Risk Appetite sets out to help all those who need to decide how much risk can be taken in a particular risky and important situation. David Hillson and Ruth Murray-Webster introduce the RARA Model to explain the complementary and central roles of Risk Appetite and Risk Attitude, and along the way they show how other risk-related concepts fit in. Risk thresholds are the external expression of inherent risk appetite, and the challenge is how to set the right thresholds. By progressively deconstructing the RARA Model, the authors show that the essential control step is our ability to choose an appropriate risk attitude. The book contains practical guidance to setting risk thresholds that take proper account of the influences of organisational risk culture and the individual risk preferences of key stakeholders. Alongside this, individuals and organisations need to choose the risk attitude that will optimise their chances of achieving the desired objectives.

Does your organization have a good or bad reputation, and who takes responsibility for it? Whether viewed as an intangible asset or potential liability, damage to reputation can be costly. In the private sector loss of investor confidence can dent corporate value; in the public sector loss of public trust can lead to political change. How can anyone protect reputation from damage? These are just some of the questions answered by the guide, designed for business leaders. Also covered is a debate about whether reputation is an operational or strategic risk, whether it should be noted in a risk register, and of course how best to measure reputation value. This guide will show you how to: - Identify the value of your reputation and mitigate risk of damage to this value. - Measure your reputation as an intangible asset and part of intellectual capital. - Manage the drivers of reputation effectively within your organization. - Report reputation risk management to inspire confidence among stakeholders. Reputation risk is relevant to not just Directors of Risk but also Communication, Compliance, and Personnel. Whatever your interest in the subject, A Short Guide to Reputation Risk provides a shorthand route to understanding the context and key features of this subject.
