Organized Uncertainty

Designing a World of Risk Management

Michael Power

  • Shows that over the last decade risk management has become an increasingly important phenomenom in businesses and organizations
  • Argues that this expansion is less to do with real dangers, and more to do with organizational accountability and legitimacy
  • Extends and develops the arguments of Power's earlier, and highly influential, book The Audit Society (OUP, 1997)
  • The signficance of this argument extends beyond management and accounting to public management, politics, and sociology
