[Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)]
Albert Einstein (1923) once said 'You believe in a God who plays dice, and I am in complete law and order in a world which objectively exists. God does not play with dice in nature, the outcomes of most of the risks we create; depend on the decisions of other human being especially in business'. This landmark speech charts the extraordinary advances that mankind has made to control destiny. Thus, in risk management, controlling risk goes beyond understanding it, measuring it, and weighing its consequences, but taking it on a journey.
