Most read posts of 2020 and all-time

December 28, 2020 Leave a comment Go to comments

It is interesting to me that the blog post that has attracted the most views in 2020 is also the most read post all-time.

It seems people continue to be very interested in risk appetite – signaling that I need to share more thoughts on why this is a concept with serious flaws, which I shall in January.

In any event, the top 12 are shown below. A further 17 had more than 1,000 views.


When it comes to all-time views, these are the posts that have garnered more than 10,000 views.


Please share which posts you enjoyed the most – and why.

    Thanks Norman , you have just provided a month’s worth of reading to be done. Many I missed but they look really interesting.

    Hi Norman,

    I always enjoy your writing and I share your thoughts often making me look a lot smarter than I actually am! 😊.

    Hope you are well and 2021 brings you and your family health and happiness.

    Hi Norman, I hope you have had a good Christmas in what has been a really different sort of year. Unexpected ? Well, only if you don’t believe in Grey Rhinos. So what will the grey rhinos be in 2021? Certainly some more hitherto publicly unacknowledged effects of climate change for one. And I predict much more debate on what sustainability really means – too many organisations/nations are picking and choosing their measures there.
    As for risk appetite and tolerance, I suspect the one reason this has been the most read of your blogs is precisely because the risk management profession/industry/Babel has created something that is just too complex – either that or all those darned regulators again – you know, those people who discover a concept just as it’s about to be discredited…..
    Happy New Year,

    I read very single one of your posts because they are thought-provoking, insightful and at times entertaining. Many thanks for your continued contribution in promoting and enhancing the profession. You gave me the courage to think different, challenge myself and to become a better auditor. Great work Norman and keep at it!
