Thought leadership

Our thought leadership programme looks at the crucial issues facing the risk management profession, both now and in the future.

IRM supports, publishes and disseminates research undertaken by members of the Institute, partner organisations, and special interest and regional groups.

We contribute to national and international committees, government bodies, research projects, consultations, standards bodies and other risk initiatives.

Risk is an enormous field, so we focus our activities on four main themes:

  • Enterprise risk management

  • Risk management competencies and education

  • Global and emerging risks

  • The interface between risk management and other disciplines

Thought leadership steering committee

Our committee, led by Technical Director Carolyn Williams, is responsible for developing our thought leadership programme.

If you would like to contribute to the programme's development or share any of your work through our online resource centre, please contact Carolyn on carolyn.williams@theirm.org
