Set against the era of man-made risk, where transnational terrorism, cyber-risk, and climate change are making traditional risk models increasingly obsolete, they argue that remaining passively on the sidelines of the global economy is dangerous, and that understanding and actively engaging the world is central to achieving risk agility. Their definition of risk agility taps into the survival and risk-taking instincts of the entrepreneur while establishing an organizational imperative focused on collective survival.
The agile risk manager is part sociologist, anthropologist, psychologist, and quant. Risk agility implies not treating risk as a cost of doing business, but as a catalyst for growth. Wagner/Disparte bring the concept of risk agility to life through a series of case studies that cut across industries, countries, and the public and private sectors. The rich, real-world examples underscore how once mighty organizations can be brought to their knees - and even their demise - by simple miscalculations or a failure to just do the right thing. The listener is offered deep insights into specific risk domains that are shaping our world, including terrorism, cyber-risk, climate change, and economic resource nationalism, as well as a frame of reference from which to think about risk management and decision making in the 21st century.

Important and timely
This is essential reading for anyone involved in risk management and decision-making in the 21st Century - and that's just about all of us. Daniel Wagner and Dante Disparte have produced a thorough, well-researched and very readable guide on why risk management needs to change how this can be done. They go where other risk management texts fear to tread - by directly addressing that in most organisations, the discipline of risk management is often unintegrated, rigid/inflexible, and compliance-based. They offer numerous real and practical examples and very insightful takes on prominent cases - including the Volkswagen emissions scandal, the global financial crisis, the Germanwings plane crash, any many others in both the public and private sectors. The recommendations around thinking long-term, being agile, being bold, turning the pyramid upside down, and doing the right thing are timeless. Highly recommended.
