Risk taking is inherent in competition, and managing risk well is a mark of successful firms. This webinar examines the challenges and opportunities for business leaders and others in an increasingly turbulent and demanding environment. Kunreuther and Useem will offer lessons for decision makers at all levels to reduce the likelihood and curtail the costs — human, financial, and reputational — of large-scale disruptions.
