The Institute of Risk Management (IRM) is the world’s leading enterprise-wide risk education Institute. We are independent, well-respected advocates of the risk profession, owned by practising risk professionals. IRM passionately believes in the importance of risk management and that investment in education and continuing professional development leads to more effective risk management.
We provide qualifications, short courses and events at a range of levels from introductory to expert. IRM supports risk professionals by providing the skills and tools needed to put theory into practice in order to deal with the demands of a constantly changing, sophisticated and challenging business environment. We operate internationally, with members and students in over 90 countries, drawn from a variety of risk-related disciplines and a wide range of industries.
As a not-for-profit organisation, IRM reinvests any surplus from its activities in the development of international qualifications, membership, short courses and events.
The Institute of Risk Management launches the 'Risk Agenda 2025'
The Institute of Risk Management (IRM) is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its founding by exploring the future direction the profession of risk management is likely to take.
Risk Agenda 2025 is launched with a survey into the future of risk management and how its members and stakeholders feel the profession will shape up in the future.
The project also sees a series of interviews, roadshows and online debates.
The publication of Perspectives on the Future of Risk marks the beginning of IRM’s Risk Agenda 2025 project. The purpose of this initiative is to stimulate debate within the risk community by examining how enterprise risk management might be delivered in 2025 and by then proposing different ways that the risk management profession might prepare itself for the possible future scenarios.
The contribution of IRM members and other stakeholders will be critical for the quality and inclusiveness of the project’s output.
Some of the ways in which you can get involved:
- Complete the Risk Agenda 2015 Survey
- Attend one of our Regional Roadshows
- Participate in online debates via our LinkedIn group
- Visit their annual Risk Leaders conference in November, where the full results will be announced and debated.
A website supporting this project can be found at https://www.theirm.org/thebigdebate

contributions to the debate provided by experts and other interested parties, and much more.

“I urge Institute members and others with an interest in our future to get involved. Visit our website, complete our Risk Agenda 2025 survey, attend workshops and events and express your views.
