Hubbard Decision Research today announced the release of the second edition of the ground-breaking book on risk management, The Failure of Risk Management: What’s Broke and How to Fix It, published by Wiley and Sons.

The second edition expands upon the central theme of the first edition, which covered misused analysis methods and showed how some of the most popular “risk management” methods are no better than astrology through examples from the 2008 credit crisis, natural disasters, outsourcing to China, engineering disasters, and other notable events where risk management failed. This edition includes new material on simple simulations in Excel, research about the performance of various methods, new survey results, expanded statistical methods, and more

The Failure of Risk Management can be purchased online here. We also have live, online training based on the principles covered in the book in a two-hour webinar that can be found here.

Risk management needs to change, and risk managers need to adopt scientifically-proven, quantitative methods like Applied Information Economics if they hope to get ahead of the curve and reduce risk with confidence instead of wishful thinking.


Learn how to identify flawed risk management methods you may be using and replace them with proven methods with our two-hour The Failure of Risk Management webinar. $150 – limited seating.
