Annie is working on her next book, a look at how information morphs as it moves higher in any large corporation. How much risk-related information does a CEO actually have when making critical decisions? The book will look at a number of examples where reputational and financial loss have both occurred. The book is tentatively titled, Executives and Risk: What Your Teams Won't Tell You.
