The Management of Risk (MoR) course is focused on risk management specifically within the project environment.
Like PRINCE2 and Managing Successful Programmes, the course comes in two levels – Foundation and Practitioner.
Why should I take the course?
PMO practitioners have chosen MoR when looking to improve their knowledge and insights specifically around risks in the project environment they work within.
Risk management is arguably one of the most important aspects of robust project management alongside planning and to have knowledge of best practice in this area would be considered a bonus in a PMO practitioner.
For PMO practitioners with minimal experience in risk management, the Foundation level is the place to start. For the more experienced, and especially those working in PMO management, the Practitioner level should also be undertaken.
For a PMO practitioner, it is important to understand some of the key themes such as corporate governance, risk management policies, processes and strategies, and the use of risk registers and issue logs.
MoR is a great certification to pursue if you are looking to deepen your knowledge; potentially becoming a risk specialist in the team or are operating in a regulatory organisation.
You have two options, take the MoP Foundation or take both the Foundation and Practitioner together.
