Course Description

M_o_R is recognised internationally as the best practice approach to managing risk. It is used globally by hundreds of large and small organisations throughout the private and public sectors to improve the way in which they manage threats and uncertainties across all aspects of their business.

The robust and flexible framework allows organisations to accurately assess risk to bring about better and more pro-active decision making and improved strategic planning through an in-depth understanding of risks and their likely impact. Using the framework, organisations are able to reduce the size of possible threats and/or increase the size of potential opportunities.

The systematic approach helps organisations to apply the required principles, approach and processes towards the tasks of identifying, estimating and evaluating risks, and then planning and implementing risk responses.

The combined M_o_R Foundation & Practitioner course starts with an introduction to the M_o_R framework before moving on to looking at how the principles and techniques can be are applied in the real world.

Course content

The objective of the Foundation course is for delegates to understand the key principles and terminology within the M_o_R guidance. The course and exam are based on a case study featuring a large organisation facing major strategic change.
