    • Prakash:

      Good day. It’s good to meet you.

      We live in a time of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). As you know, ISO is adopting risk in many more standards. The Risk Based Thinking book has been selling very well throughout the world because it provides context to ISO risk changes and provides tips on how to respond.

      Thank you for your kind comments. Best,
      Greg H.

      Greg H.
