by Carl S. Spetzler

In this publication [$], Dr. Carl Spetzler presents the first effort to assess and deploy a risk policy for a major corporation, which included working with the corporation’s leadership team to specify the precise risk attitude that they thought the company should adopt. Dr. Spetzler then works through the process of accounting for individual differences while developing a single and consistent corporate approach to risk management.
