The Board Member's Guide to Risk

by David R. Koenig

The Board Member’s Guide to Risk was written to be accessible. The author wants directors to have more confidence in taking risk. If you want your organization to be the best at taking risk that it can be, this book will get you started down that path or further your journey if you’ve already begun.

This book is about how to make boards and individual board members better at the governance of an organization’s risk-taking. It's also like a travel guidebook to the ideas that help you to take risk well.
