A new book has just been released, that will the world of risk "outside-in."
The Uncertainty Advantage (Leadership lessons for turning risk outside-in) is written by Gary S. Lynch, a career expert in risk management and related topics. Lynch's latest book (his third) describes the process of turning uncertainty into market advantage.
As he points out, risk cannot truly be managed. However, uncertainty can be navigated by organizational leaders to create situations advantageous to the organization.
The book includes ample case histories, most from Lynch's own direct experience in risk management. He has worked with dozens of companies and government agencies to overcome problems related to market risk, and has transformed himself from "risk manager" to "uncertainty visionary."
