AFERM Experts Say...
I wish I knew of such a repository. We face many challenges in our risk management community. One challenge is that risk management is too seldom recognized as an actual discipline of knowledge. The recognition of Enterprise Risk Management is rising rapidly in the Federal government. This suggests that risk management will become more broadly recognized as a career field. However, this growing recognition has not yet reached the level of the Office of Personnel Management establishing risk management as a job series. I strongly suggest it is time for OPM to take such action. However, until that occurs, we will be faced with sharing amongst our peers. AFERM has an online resource library for members (www.aferm.org/resources/), so you might want to check that out. Those organizations that have drafted position descriptions focused on risk management could provide value to the community by offering those documents for posting on the AFERM website (www.aferm.org).
