M_o_R stands for “Management of Risk” and considers risk from different perspectives within an organization: strategic, programme, project and operational. The M_o_R Management of Risk Foundation course provides delegates with an introductive overview of the processes, principles and techniques used in the M_o_R® approach. All subjects are covered in sufficient detail to allow delegates to practice the application of the guidance not only during the course, but also into their own organization.
The Foundation level measures whether a student would be able to act as an informed member of a team or an organization using the M_o_R® method in a broad range of initiatives and disciplines, such as IT and Business continuity management, project / programme risk management, operational service management, Security and Availability Management.
The course comprises a mixture of input sessions, group exercises and examination based practical work. All delegates are encouraged to actively participate during the practical sessions to gain the full benefit during the training. During the course, delegates will undertake a number of mock examinations and gain feedback on the progress towards eventual success. To prepare effectively for the M_o_R® Foundation exam, delegates should be prepared to undertake revision and exam preparation work in the evening.
M_o_R Management of Risk Foundation is suitable for any organization or individual seeing the need for guidance on a controlled approach to identification, assessment and control risk at strategic, programme, project and operational perspectives.
The successful completion of the M_o_R Management of Risk Foundation exam will give the delegate a recognised Foundation qualification. The purpose of the foundation certification is to confirm that a candidate is able to demonstrate a knowledge and comprehension of the four elements of the M_o_R framework – Principles, Approach, Processes, Embedding and reviewing – and how they support corporate governance. The Foundation level is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.
