There are many tools available to support different aspects of risk management. We maintain a list that includes most of the commonly-used risk tools currently available. It is not intended to be complete or exhaustive, and specialist tools with limited application areas are excluded. Inclusion on this list does not imply endorsement by The Risk Doctor Partnership, and conversely omission does not imply any criticism.
As a maturing discipline, risk management is supported by a wide range of professional bodies. We’re happy to provide contact details for the main professional associations, covering a range of different types of risk management. Please let us know if any organisations are missing or any of these contact details have changed.
Risk management is becoming recognised as a profession, and a number of professional bodies offer risk-related qualifications and certifications. Some of these relate to specific types of risk management while others are more general. We maintain a list of the main risk qualifications. Please let us know if any are missing or any of these details have changed.
