Zdaniem autorki tradycyjna analiza finansowa nie wystarcza do oceny wszystkich czynników ryzyka z jakim spotyka się współczesne przedsiębiorstwo. Dlatego pojawiają się nowe narzędzia analityczne.Artykuł omawia jedno z nich - ocena cyklu życia (LCA). Rozważanie podparte są przeglądem literatury na wybrany temat

Functioning in a changing environment forces organizations, both private and public ones, to take into account risk-related issues in their every day operations. To maintain a competitive position on the market, these entities must regularly identify events that can impede the achievement of the objectives they set. The quality of risk identification affects the quality of risk measurement and then selection of control mechanisms. The aim of this article is to present the practical application of some risk identification methods, which allow to establish the level of risk which an organization can accept and to propose activities that a given organization should take to eliminate dangers or at least minimize their effects.(original abstract)
