Management of Risk – Guidance for Practitioners, Third Edition aims to help organisations put in place an effective framework for risk management which will enable them to take informed decisions about the risks that affect their strategic, programme, project and operational objectives.

M_o_R® is the Cabinet Office’s best practice guidance for risk management, which offers a structured and effective framework for cost-effective, best-practice risk management that can help organisations improve service delivery and achieve real value for money.

M_o_R aims to help organisations achieve their objectives by first identifying risks, and then choosing the right response to the threats and opportunities that are created by uncertainty.

Management of Risk - Guidance for Practitioners, Third Edition:

  • advises on how to embed and review risk management differently, depending on the objectives at risk;
  • demonstrates how successful risk management can benefit an organisation by contributing to fewer unwelcome surprises, more efficient use of resources, better service delivery and lower capital costs;
  • includes real-life examples that illustrate how the M_o_R principles, approach and process can be applied;
  • identifies more detailed sources of advice on risk management techniques and specialisms;
  • is the key study guide for the M_o_R exams as it covers every aspect of the M_o_R methodology and is the basis for the exams syllabuses.
