The book went on sale nationwide on April 28, 2014 as part of John Wiley & Sons' Finance Series. Mastering Strategic Risk is a comprehensive guide to redesigning organizational systems to better manage the risks and complexities of the twenty-first century.

"The requirements of our new age demand a new response! Mastering Strategic Risk points us to a new way of managing the risks and complexities of our new era. It will enable us to move forward with a renewed intent, consciously shaping our planet into the kind of world we've deeply desired it to be," McPhee said.

Using well-known and real-world examples from Google, Toyota, World-Com, Motorola and Citrix, Mastering Strategic Risk will introduce readers to:

  • The forces behind customer behavior, competitive advantage, and a culture of discipline,
  • New major change agents that drive complexity and intensity,
  • Insight into the keys to ensuring strong corporate governance,
  • Tools that help identify and mitigate the biggest risks that undermine an organization's strategic objectives, and
  • A new HR model to drive peak performance and galvanize employees
