Certified Enterprise-wide Risk Manager – CERM™

 

Over the past 20 years, ERM has evolved from an innovative concept to a global best-practice standard for the Management of Risks in Organizations. However, regular corporate collapses and continuous crises in the global financial and economic system continue to remind us that less than effective risk management is still the NORM for most organization. Therefore, EFFECTIVE risk management has become an imperative for boards and management because it can help an organization achieve SUSTAINABLE PROFITABLE PERFORMANCE by increasing the reliability of operations, building resilience, and fostering innovation & value creation. However, implementing ERM is a very challenging undertaking; many organizations struggle through the process and in the end, fail to achieve any real tangible benefits.

The purpose of CERM™ Program is to develop ERM Champions and effective Risk Professionals able to design and drive the implementation of ERM programs in the system and culture of their organizations to improve the long-term sustainability potential and nurture the conditions for profitable growth. The CERM™ program has set the industry standard for Risk Professionals in Asia.

Since 2004, ARiMI Alumni Network has been expanding fast with Certified Enterprise-wide Risk Managers (ARiMI-CERM™) and Certified Professional Risk Managers (ARiMI-CPRM™) who have driven the ERM implementation projects successfully, developed the Risk Management systems and people capabilities, and optimised the overall strategic and operational risks/return balance in their organisations. And over the years, they have also further advanced their careers in many industries around the region, including financial services, healthcare, oil & gas, petrochemical, banking, academia, government and consulting firms.

 

Learning OBJECTIVES

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

  • Objective 1: Understand RISK and its MANAGEMENT. Gain a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary understanding (from strategy, governance, finance, internal audit to HR) of the key risk management concepts, issues, frameworks, methodologies, tools and best practices.
  • Objective 2: Build the BUSINESS CASE for ERM. Learn how to conduct a risk maturity analysis and build the business case for ERM for any organization whatever the industry, the size and the risk maturity level.
  • Objective 3: Lead ERM TRANSFORMATION. Gain the knowledge and skills to design and drive successfully the implementation of ERM within any organizational systems and culture.
  • Objective 4: Set & manage the ERM FUNCTION. Create and develop the risk management team into a strategic advisory function aiming to improve corporate planning, decision-making processes and systems throughout the organisation.
  • Objective 5: Drive ERM PERFORMANCE. Improve corporate sustainability and foster profitable growth by optimizing the balance between risk and opportunity, and building the organizational capability for continuous learning, innovation and change.
