MANAGEMENT OF RISK (MOR®)

Sterling provides the  M_o_R Foundation and Practitioner course as public schedule which runs in conjunction with a select training partner. Feedback from delegates shows that M_o_R training adds value to Project, Programme or Portfolio Risk Management. Courses provide face-to-face instruction with tutors that have years of experience in both training and Risk Management.
You should attend M_o_R training if you need guidance on a controlled approach to identify, analyse and manage risk at strategic, programme, project and operational level. Success in the M_o_R Foundation exam is a pre requisite to sitting the Practitioner exam. You will also benefit if you are from other disciplines, particularly if you are responsible for establishing standards and integration with MSP and PRINCE2.

Management of Risk (M_o_R) is a guidance of risk which can be used across an organisation. Within project and programme environments there will always be risk which needs to be identified, analysed and managed. Other areas of an organisation will also be exposed to risks as operational functions are carried out. M_o_R provides guidance on how best to deal with this.

The Guide has been written by leading experts for the Office of Government Commerce - owners of the PRINCE2 & MSP Methods. This event is designed to prepare delegates to manage risks in a controlled and structured way by examining the M_o_R guide. Examinations (controlled and marked by the APM Group) are available during the event for you to achieve Foundation and Practitioner level.
