GlobalRisk Community, founder
Given the abysmal track record of risk management along with (and likely the because of) the questionable scientific basis for the major data gathering instrument, i.e. the facilitated self-assessment, the reliance on the Gaussian curve, and goofy metrics like VAR, it seems that certification effectively codifies bad practices while simultaneously asking the practitioner to pass a professional examination on pseudoscience.
I understand your position. The methods you described are still in use by the financial institutions. As result of the crisis the limitations of these methods became apparent for the mainstream practitioners and the task of educational organizations is to teach topics which are required by certification institutes and make students aware of the limitations.
I'm happy to discuss your proposals and ideas on changes in the curriculum and what trainings we can offer.
