ISO 31000 is the international standard for risk management framework for enterprises and corporations.

Technical terms used in ISO 31000 (without their explanation and meaning) leave readers in a difficult situation to understand the ISO 31000:2018 standard.

The course covers risk management principles as expressed in ISO 31000 in a brief and simple explanation. The principles guide organizations to have a risk management system with some important considerations. Without these principles, organizations implementing the system will not produce desired results. Risk management systems need to be integrated and structured with organizational arrangements. The system should be comprehensive and is customized and tailored as per the organization’s requirements. Also, the organization should consider all stakeholders’ inclusion within the formation of the system. The system has to be dynamic and based on the latest information, considering the human and cultural factors. The system should have the provision for continual improvement. The course then unveils Risk Management Framework as proposed by the ISO 31000:2018 international standard. Leadership and commitment are the important elements of the framework. The course provides recommendations for leadership to have a policy statement on risk management. The leadership should also allocate necessary resources for effective implementation. Top management should also define roles and responsibilities for establishing the framework, among many other recommendations discussed in the course. The course highlights that the framework should be properly designed with a provision for its evaluation and improvement.
The course enlightens learners on the process of risk management as per the ISO 31000:2018 standard. Once the framework has been implemented, organizations can move towards risk management at different levels. Communication and consultation is one important part of the risk management process. The purpose of communication and consultation is risk comprehension and to build inclusiveness within the team. In the risk management process, scope identification is also a recommendation. The objective of scope definition is to identify the premise of the risk management process application and consider how the process is implemented to customize it based on the stakeholders’ needs. The process should also have some risk criteria. Risk criteria are the key to the risk assessment process, and it helps to decide after risk evaluation. Risk identification, risk analysis, and risk evaluation are part of the risk assessment process. After risk evaluation, the organization has to select a decision about risk treatment options; the course expresses many recommendations within that as well. Treatment should not be an isolated process; instead, continual monitoring and review ensure effectiveness. The outcomes of the risk management process have to be reported and recorded.
