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.

Should I take Foundation and Practitioner?

It depends. For the more senior PMO practitioners it is advised that you would complete both levels – especially if you are looking to become an advanced practitioner in risk management.

The Foundation level is fine if you’re currently working as a PMO Analyst within a PMO, the Practitioner can be carried out later in your career.

Is MoR well recognised?

Yes, by organisations and managers within project and programme management.

It’s a course that denotes specialism or being a specialist – so less well-known than something like PRINCE2.

Many PMO practitioners opt to complete MoR if they are specifically working in organisations that have a serious focus on risk management.

They often do this course alongside P3O.

I'm not working in a PMO, why should I do this course?

The MoR course is also popular with practitioners working in all levels of project management who are looking to increase their knowledge in this crucial area of project management.

Project Managers, Programme Managers, Heads of departments and project team members all have a need to understand risk management.
