The numbers game: a systems perspective on risk

Aaron Pycroft, P. Jennings

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This chapter will explore continued developments in the study of risk and risk management, with a focus for discussion on an increased understanding of evolutionary processes, and the development of insights into the nature and behaviours of complex systems. It will be argued that by taking a whole systems rather than a reductionist approach, our understanding and development of approaches to risk management can be improved, and the chapter will conclude with a case study to highlight some of the key issues.
