Board Perspectives: Risk Oversight, Issue 60

It is not unusual to find evidence of group-think, dominant personalities, over reliance on numbers, disregard of contrary information, disproportionate weighting of recent events, and tendencies toward risk avoidance or risk-taking in any organization.
