Are you looking for a better job in risk management?

In my 16 year career in risk management I hired or helped to hire a lot of risk professionals both in Europe and Middle East. In this article I describe the competencies that I usually look for in a risk professional. The list of competencies I originally wrote about still rings true to me. So I dedicated my last 4 years to creating a platform where risk management can upskill and learn from some of the best risk and decision professionals on the planet.

I strongly believe that learning how to build an influence diagram or a decision tree and then converting it into a stochastic model, running simulations and back testing model assumptions will prepare you for any emerging risk on the planet. Risks change, the math under the bonnet is almost always the same. Learning the basic principles of probability theory, decision science, behavioral economics and corporate finance, in my mind, is still the most important skillset for a risk manager to have.

If you are looking to upskill your risk team, want to understand what is risk management all about, thinking of switching to risk management or just want a better job, then look no further. Learn from this collection of amazing resources.

Watch RAW2019 replays, still as relevant as ever

Learn how to use influence diagrams to build a risk model, how to use SIPs to make your risk models universally used throughout the organisation, why heatmaps don’t work, overcome cognitive biases when talking about risks, implement practical risk culture ideas and many more. All RAW2019 replays are now free.
