    MoR is a specially developed approach to risk management, combining the following:
  • MoR Principles: these underpin good risk management practice and are based upon the principles of corporate governance as risk management is part of an organisation’s internal controls.
  • MoR Approach: how to adapt the principles to your organisation, agreeing and defining them within a risk management strategy and processes using risk registers plus issue logs.
  • The four MoR Processes: these describe the inputs, outputs and activities required so that risks can be identified, assessed and controlled.

  • Once the principles, approach and processes are decided upon, the emphasis is upon embedding them and undertaking consistent and regular reviews depending upon which of the organisation’s objectives are at risk.
    Yes, thoroughly, and within an ethical framework. At the end of the course, you will be in a better position to make appropriate decisions about risks that pertain to short-, medium- or long-term goals. Whether the emphasis is upon immediate corrective procedures or diagnosis of possible future trends, your new MoR tools should give you fresh insights and confidence in dealing with risk and making the most of opportunities.
    Certainly. You may study the Foundation and Practitioner Certificates separately or at the same time. You must pass the Foundation exam before the Practitioner exam – but you can pass both on the same day. Those who do are awarded the higher certificate only.
