Risk management has become a far more popular discipline in recent years. Businesses are finding that they need to evolve more rapidly in the Digital Age, which can lead to regular or even continuous business transformation initiatives.
At the same time, risk management has also evolved as a discipline. It is becoming a popular specialist career path and is now closely connected with organizational strategy and alignment. In other words, there are far more opportunities available for those with noteworthy risk management experience and skills.
M_o_R also has a significant pedigree, having come from AXELOS (the organization behind frameworks such as PRINCE2, ITIL 4, and Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)). It offers demonstrably effective tools and best practices for managing risks and opportunities and is generic enough to be applied to virtually any business or organization.
