Enterprise Risk Management Best Practices: From Assessment to Ongoing Compliance


By Anne M. Marchetti 




Enterprise Risk Management Best Practices takes you step-by-step through the entire process of getting a cost-effective risk management program up and running in any organization, regardless of its size, structure or culture.
