Managing Risk has in recent years seen a shift in focus to make its procedures and techniques more adjustable to change in business and economy and more receptive to the requests of C-suite executives. By now focusing on strategic risks, these executives, including the CFOs find themselves better prepared and equipped to distinguish what could undermine their future business, face new challenges and take advantage of the upcoming opportunities.

These issues often lead to question like “Are we going to try to resist this, avoid it, and push it off if possible?
