Guest Article from the Nonprofit Risk Management Center

Managing Risk in an Improbable World

By Carlye Christianson and Melanie Lockwood Herman

In his fascinating book, Struck by Lightning: The Curious World of Probabilities, University of Toronto professor Jeffrey S. Rosenthal explores the science of probabilities. Rosenthal's text offers a compelling argument for thoughtful risk management while reminding readers to accept the ever–present companion of "randomness."

Our "take" on this is that nonprofit leaders have two options when it comes to uncertainty: #1. We can let uncertainty get the better of us and our organizations, or #2. We can learn to understand and perhaps appreciate randomness and act accordingly.
