M_o_R®– Risk Management


M_o_R is a route map for risk management. It can help organizations identify, assess and control risks and put in place effective frameworks for making informed decisions.

M_o_R®- Risk Management

M_o_R is part of the Global Best Practice portfolio owned by AXELOS Ltd.

M_o_R considers risk from different perspectives within an organization: strategic, programme, project and operational. While it links to other AXELOS Global Best Practices like ITIL®, MSP®, PRINCE2® etc.., it respects the roles, responsibilities and terminologies used outside the disciplines of programme and project management.

M_o_R is intended to help organisations to put in place effective frameworks for taking informed decisions about risk. The guidance provides a route map for risk management, bringing together recommended approaches, checklists and pointers to more detailed sources of advice on tools and techniques.

M_o_R covers a wide range of topics, including business continuity management, security, programme/project risk management and operational service management. These topics are placed in the context of an organisational framework for the management of risk.
