Chameleon in the Room is a
must-read for those managing risks!
July 7, 2017
writer looks beyond the obvious, makes comparisons across cultures. He
‘slices’ the concept of risk in fragments and does describe the
obvious but, even more important, explains the non-obvious. It makes you
re-think, challenges you to look at things from a different perspective,
and provides tips and direction, based on actual events. In short, very
practical and a must-read for those engaged in the management of risks.
