Rethink Risk Through The Lens of Antifragility

In a hyper-connected, highly uncertain world, risk management is failing us.  

This position paper argues that the way we think about risk isn't serving businesses and government agencies well enough in the 21st century, and that a new mindset, namely that of antifragility is a promising augmentation. 

The paper includes nine stratagems for increasing antifragility, which we recommend CIOs keep in mind in all strategy and planning activities.
