M_o_R® (Management of Risk), an AXELOS product, provides a framework for risk management considering the different aspects of an organisation: strategic, programme project and operational. It combines principles, approach and processes and offers advice on how they should be implemented, depending on the magnitude of the risk’s impact on objectives.

The course is suitable for

  • Risk Managers
  • Project and Programme Managers
  • Business Change Managers
  • Operational team members and managers
  • Professionals in corporate governance environment responsible for identifying, assessing, or managing risk, or reporting on organisation risk management activities.


There are no official pre-requisites. We recommend all delegates, regardless of their experience, take advantage of our pre-course study materials.


Following training, Individuals can gain the confidence and ability to influence and shape risk management across an organization. They can encourage openness and discuss real business issues in a realistic manner to meet business objectives, improve service delivery and achieve value for money; and put an effective framework in place to make informed decisions about the risks that affect strategic, programme, project and operational objectives. They can understand the nature and extent of risks facing a company and reduce the incidence and impact on the business, and continuously apply risk management to an organization and simplify the process of making information available when decisions need to be made.

With trained personnel, organisations can increase competitive advantage and become more risk aware by managing potential problems and opportunities, improve performance through waste and fraud reduction and more efficient use of resources, and better manage contingent and maintenance activities and increase the likelihood of achieving change initiatives. They can bring together principles, an approach and a process with a set of interrelated steps and pointers to more detailed sources of advice on risk management techniques and specialisms in order to develop a route map for risk management; and identify, assess and control risks to effectively manage them.
