The second narrative, “cognitive failure”, is also consistent with microeconomic models of human behavior, but calls for a deeper level of explanation that accounts for the formation of references and beliefs held by financial executives and market participants. In the applied sense, the concept of strategic risk management is reflected in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recommendations. In this case, risk management is defined as coordinated activities to direct and control an organization with regards to risk [ CITATION Wie14 \l 1033 ]. According to [ CITATION Far92 \l 1033 ], As a distinct management discipline, the concept of risk management as a theoretical basis for handling risk first became evident in the UK

some after the second world war. Its development into a defined role and practical application came later. It has developed from two planes or directions: (1) The expansion of the role of insurance buyer into that of risk manager and the creation of a recognized discipline; (2) The educational need to improve the intellectual and practical capability of today’s and tomorrow’s manager, which the second is a direct product of the former. 2.1.2 Tools or Techniques of Risk Management During the last decade, a major surge of interest arose in improving our ability to deal with uncertainty, most notably with its negative impact at the organizational level. This has led to the development and application of tools, techniques, and methodologies which are classified under the label of risk management. From a comprehensive survey that was conducted with the aid of the librarian of the Standard Institute of Israel, Nine standards were identified consisting of six national or international standards that were developed or adopted by standardization bodies, and three standard that were developed by professional organizations with an interest in risk management, which were published recently with the earlier publication on 1997. Included are the various standards that were identified; Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, USA (2001), International Electrochemical Commission, Switzerland(2001), Japanese Standards Association (2001), Standard Australia/ Standard New Zealand(2004), British Standard Institution(BSI) (2000), Canadian Standards Association(CSA) (1997), Association for Project Management(APM)UK,(2004) and Project Management Institute, USA (2004). However, none of the stated standards are currently used for certification purposes, though in some cases these have been proposed and it’s been actively pursued towards the achievement of organizational goal [ CITATION Hil05 \l 1033 ]. This indicates that, risk management can be described as the performance of activities designed to minimize the negative impact (cost) of uncertainty (risk) subject to possible losses. According to[ CITATION Rom04 \l 1033 ], risk management model can be viewed as either a descriptive theory that reflects current practice or perspective theory that suggests a refinement of practice. As the perspective theory t is better understood, it should
