Management of Risk

From £315

Management of Risk (M_o_R) is a generic framework for the management of risk across all parts of an organisation – strategic, programme, project and operational. It incorporates all the activities required to identify and control the exposure to any type of risk, positive or negative, which may have an impact on the achievement of your organisation’s business object

PMIQ offers accredited learning for the M_o_R certification via online and blended learning solutions and a full public schedule of high quality classroom training . Alternatively if you have a group who require training we can arrange M_o_R learning solutions at a venue of your choice.

Almost every organisational decision has an upside and a downside involving some degree of risk. Aimed at everyone who has ever made an important decision, M_o_R is a robust yet flexible framework that allows organisations to assess risk accurately time and time again.

M_o_R is intended to help organisations to put in place effective frameworks for taking informed decisions about risk. The guidance provides a route map for risk management, bringing together recommended approaches, checklists and pointers to more detailed sources of advice on tools and techniques.

M_o_R covers a wide range of topics, including business continuity management, security, programme/project risk management and operational service management. These topics are placed in the context of an organisational framework for the management of risk.

Some risk-related topics, such as security, are highly specialised and this guidance provides only an overview of such aspects.

The process of investment appraisal, in which assessments are made of costs, benefits and risks, is outside the scope of this guide. However, many of the principles and techniques described can be used when developing the business case.

M_o_R is part of the Global Best Practice portfolio owned by AXELOS Ltd.

The Foundation qualification is a pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.

M_o_R Practitioner Purpose

The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor M_o_R in a scenario situation. Individuals should be able to demonstrate Foundation competencies and, with suitable direction, should be able to start applying the M_o_R framework to a particular organisational perspective, but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual risk management expertise, complexity of the governance environment in place and the support provided for risk management in their work environment will all be factors that affect what the Practitioner can achieve.

Target audience

This qualification is aimed at anyone working within a corporate governance environment that has responsibilities for identifying, assessing, planning, or managing risks, or reporting on risk management activities across the organisation.
