Certified Risk Analyst – CRA™

 

Modern Organisations have now to operate in global business environment fraught with exponentially increasing volatility and complexity. There are risks regardless of whatever path and activities are pursued. The key question is: “How can I make confidently major strategic and operational decisions in a way that optimize the balance between opportunity and risk?” To answer that question, you will need to build a risk mapping and profiling model that relates clearly organizational performance with risk management.

Hence, the essential purpose of the CRA™ program is to equip participants with the methodologies and tools necessary to conduct comprehensive assessment and mapping of risks profiles in projects and organisations. The program aims to develop highly effective Risk Analysts able to identify, analyze and manage Risks and Opportunities to ensure optimal level performance level for their organisations.

Learning OBJECTIVES

The aim of the program is not just for participants to acquire new knowledge and get a certification, but also to develop the capabilities to apply that knowledge effectively to resolve their organization risk management challenges. Consequently, CRA™ graduates will:

  • Objective 1: Understand RISK. Build an in-depth and dynamic understanding of the factors that influence the emergence of risks and opportunities in organizations in today’s global economic, regulatory and cultural context
  • Objective 2: Build a stronger RISK ASSESSMENT process. Acquire a practical, comprehensive and cross-disciplinary knowledge (from strategy, finance to psychology) of Risks/Opportunities identification, mapping methodologies and tools to design a risk assessment process that make threats and opportunities (including “Black Swans”) more visible and measurable so that they can be analysed effectively.
  • Objective 3: Conduct RISK DIAGNOSTIC. Develop a practical knowledge of effective risk analysis and mapping tools (quantitative & qualitative), as well as the analytical ability to turn data into information to support for effective strategic and operational decision-making
  • Objective 4: Master RISK COMMUNICATION. Develop the skills to communicate risk information to various groups of stakeholders, while considering the cultural and psychological factors that influence how people make decisions
  • Objective 5: Improve CORPORATE PLANNING & DECISION-MAKING. By promoting the allocation of scarce resources to the relevant risk/opportunities issues highlighted through the application of appropriate Risk Assessment methodologies & tools.
