10 years later: What's changed in risk management?
By Dr. David Hillson
The Risk Doctor brand was launched 10 years ago, in July 2003, and we've been looking back to see what's changed since then. We can see that considerable progress has been made, but there's still some way to go before risk management is seen to deliver on its full promise as a major contributor to project and business success. While there have been definite improvements, some things remain depressingly similar.

How to fail at corporate fraud
Threatpost
Working with forensics experts from the FBI, Ernst & Young's Fraud Investigation and Dispute Services Practice developed a piece of linguistic, fraud-monitoring software that identified language commonly used among employees engaged in corporate malfeasance. So, if you are thinking about charging some "special fees" or exploiting a "grey area" in order to pick up some "off the books," "friendly payments" that "nobody will find out" about, think twice, even if you think your employer "won't miss it," because E&Y determined that these and some 3,000 other phrases commonly indicate the existence of employees attempting to defraud their employers.

Tricky question: Must you pay commissions to those on FMLA leave?
HR Morning
The law specifically says FMLA leave is to be unpaid. But can that regulation be taken at face value? Apparently not — because that would make things too easy for employers.

Research: Why companies keep getting blind-sided by risk
Harvard Business Review
After tsunamis, protests, wildfires, and riots — to name just a few recent major disruptions — few managers can be unaware of companies' vulnerability to the vagaries of politics and extreme weather. You'd think. Yet three quarters of the 195 large companies surveyed recently by APQC got hit by an unexpected major supply chain disruption in the last 24 months. We are talking here about an unforeseen event involving a physical asset owned by the enterprise or a third party. Major means an event that has the potential to severely interrupt a business' ability to deliver on its promises to customers — perhaps a power station for a vital assembly plant going dark for months.
