Dr Michael Jacobides, London Business School: Finding an appropriate risk versus growth or return trade-off


Themes: Guest speakers, Risk

At the Centre for Risk Studies’ 4th Annual Meeting, leaders and decision makers from business, government, inter-governmental organisations, academia and NGOs explored the links between risk and strategy.

Challenging the customary perception that risk is the threat of loss with predominantly negative undertones, the annual conference encouraged broader discussion about opportunities that emerge in a risky environment.

Dr Michael Jacobides, Associate Professor of Strategy at London Business School, believes a great deal of progress has to be made before an appropriate risk versus growth or return trade-off is hit.
