  3. 3. A Systemic Approach Framework for Operational Risk – SAFOR –

    University dissertation from Kista : Institutionen för data- och systemvetenskap (tills m KTH)

    Author : Anna-Maria Kessler; Love Ekenberg; Mats Danielson; Tara Baidya; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; operational risk; systems thinking; decision analysis; interval forecasts; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science Computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap Data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis attempts to describe the essential systems features of a complex real-world domain of operational risk (OR) in banking, by employing general systems theory (GST) as the guiding method. An implementational framework (SAFOR) is presented for operational risk management (ORM), the target of which is to manage and mitigate the risk-around-loss causes. READ MORE

  4. 4. New Risk Markers in Atrial Fibrillation
