What is M_o_R®?

M_o_R® (Management of Risk) is a Best Practice Guidance framework provided by Axelos, a leading best practice provider formed jointly with the UK government. M_o_R® considers risk in four areas of business: strategic, programme, project and operational. The framework links easily with other management disciplines such as project and programme management, while maintaining their respective terminologies and methodologies.


Case Study

The Rehabilitation Hospital, part of the King Fahad Medical City complex of four hospitals in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia used M_o_R® in order to create a high-quality risk policy and become one of the first hospitals outside the US to receive accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

In 2008, the Rehabilitation Hospital made a strategic decision to go for CARF accreditation, which would indicate to patients and stakeholders that it met the highest standards of quality and care. In order to achieve this, they needed to create a risk management policy. As the organisation did not have an existing risk strategy, they had to create one from scratch.

Working with a consultancy organisation, the hospital implemented M_o_R®. Using the framework, risks were categorised into policy, strategy, processes and organisation capability. In addition to this, risk registers, where risks were rated according to the impact they could have, were introduced, and the most senior person who would deal with the risk was nominated a Risk Advisor. The highest scoring risks in each department were put on to the main risk register, ensuring that the biggest risks that could affect the hospital itself could be managed accordingly.

Overall, M_o_R® has helped give The Rehabilitation Hospital much higher standards of care, patient satisfaction, and staff safety. In an analysis using the P3M3 portfolio management assessment framework, the hospital reached level 3 in risk management – higher than other organisation assessed in risk. The hospital’s risk policy is so successful that there are now plans for it to be rolled out across the entire King Fahad Medical City.

Five Ways to Boost your CV

Whether you’re trying to take your first step onto the career ladder, desperate for a promotion or simply thinking about a career change, your CV is a vital tool in reaching your career goals. The most important thing to think about when making a job application is standing out from the crowd, and chances are when you’re putting together your ‘additional skills and experience’ section – you’ll be a little stuck for ideas.
Never fear, as below we’ve outlined 5 simple ways to give your curriculum vitae the boost it needs to get you your dream job:

1) Learn a language

Is c’est la vie the extent of your French knowledge? Perhaps ‘Paella’ is the only Spanish you remember from your GSCE Spanish oral?
Well get this – if you’re able to speak another language this unsurprisingly puts you in the minority, hence giving your CV something a little extra to speak employers attention. As the most widely spoken language in the world (half a billion people) Spanish speaking skills would give you a distinct advantage. Similarly, being able to communicate in Mandarin and Cantonese is especially helpful for those wanting to go into business; many UK businesses are developing links with the Far East. 
You don’t have to become fluent in a foreign language, but simply being competent enough to hold a conversation will put you yards ahead of your competition.

2) Improve your ICT skills

In this age of social media mania, chances are we’ve all got a computer, a tablet, laptop and phone, but are you actually skilled in anything IT related or do you just know the basics?
We’re not saying you need to understand coding and HTML programing, but making sure you know your Word from your Excel will give you a good advantage when making job applications. Computer-phobic? Not to worry – a wide range of IT courses are available at anywhere from advanced to basic levels.

3) Pass your driving test

Most people assume that driving is a skill held by everyone, so don’t bother to mention it. On the contrary, mentioning your clean license can be a huge advantage; DVLA figures show that one in three adults in the UK don’t hold a driver’s license – who knew?
Even if you don’t own a car and use public transport to commute every day, your driving license is still worth mentioning.
And if you don’t drive, then why not book a one off driving lesson and give it a go – you never know, you might fall in love with the open road and gain a great skill for your CV – bonus!

4) Show off your talents

If you’re an expert piano player, beautiful dancer or star striker then why on earth would you keep it to yourself?! You may think sporting or musical achievements aren’t related to the field of work you’re applying for, but they actually tell employers a lot about you and your personal attributes.
Performance skills show confidence, communication skills and a good memory, whilst sporting achievements indicate a person who is hard working, ambitious and works well in a team – and who wouldn’t want to hire someone like that?!

5) Get your digital skills up to date

Most of us are confident in using our smart phones and tablets, but there are many other ways we can add to our digital media skills. Although it would seem these skills are only relevant if you’re applying for a job in the media industry, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
More and more companies are beginning to branch into social media and make themselves a digital profile. Being well versed in social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.) will put you at a distinct advantage and benefit you in almost any career – they are easily transferable skills!

So there you have it, 5 skills that will instantly upgrade your CV and kick start your career prospects! Here at The Knowledge Academy, there are a huge number of courses available to update your skill set and in turn, make yourself seriously employable. So what are you waiting for – enrol today!

Happy Customers

Good Course Really enjoyed the M_o_R course I recently attended. The venue was easy to find and the learning environment was friendly and relaxed. There was plenty to cover on the course but our trainer Rob Walters really brought the material to life and kept my attention well. Thanks - would certainly consider this provide again.
Perfect! Top trainer, top course, top service. Thank you TKA.
Great service by The Knowledge Academy, the course was well put-together with very high standard of teaching.
A very useful course and an enjoyable few days of learning.
I can't thank TKA enough for their services. The M_o_R course was interesting and a great asset for my future.
I attended the M_o_R course in Birmingham and I wanted to formally express my thanks. The instructor displayed a wealth of knowledge and imparted it onto the group in such an enthusiastic way that his passion for the subject was extremely infectious. I have been on previous 5 day courses where they can get a bit tiresome towards the end and my attention can waiver, however this was far from the case on this course. Based on this experience with the Knowledge Academy I will definitely recommend you to friends and colleagues.
This course was well taught with excellent support materials. It demands hard work, but the trainer was excellent at keeping up the pace while ensuring no one of us was ever left behind
I was very impressed with the quality and depth of the training I received from the Knowledge Academy. The training was geared to obtaining a pass grade focusing on key syllabus areas and the advice on what notes to make in the manual was also extremely beneficial. Thank you!
