Identifying and Managing Risk

In this assignment, you will compare and evaluate risk management techniques from experts in the field. Go to the Ashford University Library and find one article by Dr. James Kallman.

Develop a three- to four-page analysis (excluding the title and reference pages), of the techniques Dr. Kallman has identified for managing risks.

Assignment Instructions:

In this assignment you will compare and evaluate risk management techniques from experts in the field.

Go to the Ashford Library and find one article by James Kallman. Dr. Kallman, an expert in the field of risk management, has written many articles on managing financial risk. Find a second article in the Ashford Library from another credible author of your choice who also provides recommendations for risk management.

Develop a three to four page analysis, excluding title and reference page(s), of the techniques Dr. Kallman has identified for managing risks. In this analysis, compare Dr. Kallmans techniques to the techniques recommended in the second article you researched. Explain why you either agree or disagree with each authors recommendations. Identify other factors you believe should be considered in risk management. The assignment should be comprehensive and include specific examples. The paper should be formatted according to APA.

This is a lot like your Week 1 assignment. You will go back to the library and find two articles – one by Dr. Kallman, and another by an author knowledgeable on risk mitigation.

You will start off by summarizing Dr. Kallmans article (appx. 3/4 page). I expect that you will paraphrase and not use large direct quotes.

The second ¾ page will be a summarization from another author. Again, paraphrase and do not use large direct quotes.

The second to third pages will be a compare and contrast. What is similar between the two? Anything different? I expect a well thought out third page – not just a single paragraph.

Again, be sure to cite and quote correctly using APA guidelines.
