Through a series of case studies and selected special topics, Public Sector Enterprise Risk Management presents examples from leading Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) programs on overcoming bureaucratic obstacles, developing a positive risk culture, and making ERM a valuable part of day-to-day management. Specifically designed to help government risk managers, with concepts and approaches to help them advance risk management beyond the basics, the book: Provides a balanced mix of concepts, instruction and examples; Addresses topics that go beyond the basics of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program design and implementation; Includes insights from leading practitioners and other senior officials. Many government organizations can refer to the growing body of materials that provide examples of ERM processes and procedures. Far fewer reference materials and examples exist to help organizations develop a risk-mature organizational culture that is critical to the long-term success and strategic value that ERM represents to government organizations. Public Sector Enterprise Risk Management begins to fill that void and is intended to help public sector risk managers overcome barriers that inhibit ERM from becoming an active contributor to major decisions that top officials must make.

How any leader can deliver business-changing innovation now. Any leader in any size company, no matter the size or sector, feels the pressure to innovate, find new ideas and business models, and create enduring customer value. There is no one formula or set process to find and execute the ideas that achieve these goals; customers set moving targets, shareholders are unforgiving and demanding, and society expects companies to care about much more than the bottom line. The fast and furious forces of change stimulated by technology, demographics, lifestyles, and economic, environmental, political and regulatory impacts -- or any number of these in combination – are easy to see. They are easy to talk about. They are easy to intellectualize. The problem? The answers are hard to execute and require nuanced combinations of leadership, skills, strategy and tactics. On top of that, innovation has moved from an abstraction that will matter at some distant date to a front-and-center deliverable that must show evidence of impact in the space of the calendar quarter. In the stories, tools, techniques and advice inside The Change Maker’s Playbook, leaders will find tangible steps to find and safeguard the plans that will deliver the sustainable business-changing impacts – new customers, new relationships, new sources of value and growth— their businesses need. Separated from the pack of academic and consultant innovation theories, Radin’s approach stems from her own experience sitting in the innovation hot seat at some of the world’s most demanding companies and is bolstered by interviews with 50 corporate executives, founders and startup investors representing media, e-commerce, payments, healthcare, government, professional services, and not-for-profit sectors. The book walks readers through Radin’s adaptive, 9-part framework, engaging them in ready-to-apply techniques. Her work shows leaders how to find the big ideas that will meaningfully address customer needs, take the insight from idea through implementation in a way that delivers in the short and long-term for the organization, and lead effectively through the obstacles that tend to derail or diminish innovation. Three phases – Seeking, Seeding and Scaling – organize the framework within an intuitive, logical and useable format, with concrete actions outlined every step of the way. The answer to the dilemma every business faces today is that innovation is exhilarating, rewarding and even fun when it is approached as a unique challenge, but it can also be polarizing, unpredictable, and scary. Success requires that leaders rethink how they lead innovation. Leaders know they must set aside preconceived notions of what works, and look to those who have already walked in their shoes. This is why The Change Maker’s Playbook was written, and why it will become an ongoing resource for any innovation leader. Table of Contents: Foreword The Change Maker’s Framework (image) Introduction Chapter 1: Discovering Real Problems That Matter Chapter 2: Purpose, Passion, Promise and Positioning Chapter 3: The Art Of Being Resourceful Chapter 4: Prototype, Test, Learn, Iterate Chapter 5: Business Model Linchpins Chapter 6: The Green Light Moment Chapter 7: Launch Chapter 8: Testing and Experimenting Chapter 9: Anticipating and Adapting Epilogue Acknowledgements Bibliography

This book offers the small investor unique assistance that is not found in other publications offering investment advice. The small investor is, in effect, “competing” with professional money managers, who are often on the opposite side of a trade. If a stock is becoming cheaper because institutions (the mutual funds, hedge funds, etc.) are net sellers, should you, the individual, buy? The professionals have access to corporate managements, employ or have access to paid staffs of analysts, are trained to read a company’s financial statements, and actively participate in company conference calls. In short, this is still an uneven playing field, even though SEC Regulation FD (for fair disclosure) has mandated the dissemination of material information in a more equitable fashion. This book is comprised of three sections. Part One describes the major institutional investor groups and the deep resources at their disposal. Part Two illustrates the tools available to small investors that can create a more level playing field. Access to company-sponsored conference calls and web casts are examples that are open to individual, as well as professional investors, but many either are unaware of these tools or fail to avail themselves of these opportunities. The main section of the book is an outline of 24 key industry groups that comprise the S&P 500; the salient metrics and terms; the valuation methods that investors use; most common questions asked on conference calls; and what motivates pros to buy or sell the stocks. Why are some technology stocks often valued as a multiple of sales when most industries are measured by their price/earnings (P/E) multiple? What is the appropriate price/cash flow multiple for industries that are measured by that metric? Why do analysts scrutinize a retailer’s same-store sales and the semiconductor industry’s book-to-bill ratio? These are among the many issues that are crucial to successfully investing in individual stocks. Understanding how pros judge companies and value their stocks will enable people to make better investment decisions and, hopefully, realize greater returns on their stock portfolios. A good introduction to stock market investing, coming at the perfect time. 2014 will be a challenging year and readers of Mark Mandel’s new book will be ready. —John Rubino, author of Clean Money: Picking Winners in the Green Tech Boom
