Management of Risk (M_o_R®) Foundation

The importance of managing risk in projects

All organisations will benefit from being more aware of risk and putting measures in place to monitor and control it. However, this course is offered as part of the project and programme management portfolio because projects and programmes are usually more risky than 'business as usual'.

Management of Risk (M_o_R) provides guidance that organisations can use to help them take informed decisions about the risks they face. It can help organisations identify, assess and control risks and put in place effective frameworks for making informed decisions. .

M_o_R Foundation is a 3 day introduction to the framework's Principles, Perspectives, Approach and Procedure for managing risk.

Learners will look at the various management products that M_o_R recommends an organisation to use, and discuss ways to respond to different risks.

There is a one hour multiple choice exam at the end of the 3rd day.

While pre-reading is recommended, the course assumes no previous knowledge or experience.

On completion of the course, learners will have a better understanding of current best practice around the management of risk. They will be able to suggest ways in which their organisation can improve their current risk management practices.

Once they have the Foundation certificate, learners usually go onto the Practitioner course.

  • "Sue was an excellent trainer and a nice person to be trained by too. Clearly has a thorough and comprehensive knowledge of not only the course but the whole discipline."
    Joe, APM PMQ course
  • "The use of whiteboards, real time example, breakout room and attempting the questions after every topic was really helpful. The enthusiastic tutor, made the course better."
    Anon, PRINCE2 Agile course
  • "The ideas and techniques learned in the course has changed my vision towards project management. It taught me various methods which I can apply in my career. I managed to learn new aspects of management cycle which I was unaware of. The course was very useful to me."
    Pawan, PRINCE2 Agile course
  • "I thoroughly enjoyed the course and got a good deal of useful information from it. I have carried out projects throughout my career, and a few years ago took the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ), but carried out projects using my own methods. PRINCE2 is great in that it sets out a methodology for carrying out project management, and is the most widely recognised in the UK. Adding agile was the icing on the cake."
    Lara, PRINCE2 Agile
  • "Dhaliwal Narinder our trainer was excellent, adding insights from her vast experience to enhance our learning. We have tried Agile and Project Management separately, now i have the opportunity to try both again in my Faculty. Receiving this course online whilst locked down was perfect."
    Kevin, PRINCE2 Agile course
  • "The course was interesting and interactive, though a lot of information needed to be crammed in and consumed. Having done an Agile course a few years ago, this course helped to reinforce what was previously learned and put a project management theme to it. The instructor was very knowledgeable and explained the theory very well. The other participants were engaging and helped make the course interesting through the sharing of question and answer sessions to the relationship of past experiences."
    Ted, PRINCE2 Agile course
