We teach current and aspiring board members to govern their organization’s risk-taking, so they are more likely to achieve their goals. Our goal, which is emblazoned on our logo, is to help organizations Innovate, Sustain, and Create Value.
All boards face uncertain times where confident risk knowledge is a valuable competitive advantage, especially as we emerge from the pandemic and confront more significant structural, technical, geopolitical, social, and environmental risks that will impact our strategy and success. Regulators and investors are demanding more.
The DCRO Institute is a non-profit dedicated to education and research to advance the governance of risk-taking at organizations around the world.
We prepare current and aspiring directors to be leaders in the governance of risk-taking at their organizations. Through our core Certificate in Risk Governance Course - The Board Members' Course on Risk™, we bring a global educational opportunity to current and aspiring board members worldwide.
Our highly accessible training programs allow key corporate players to attain the necessary practical skills to understand and govern their organization’s risk-taking to better fulfill the corporate purpose.
The DCRO Institute is affiliated with the Directors and Chief Risk Officers Group, an all-volunteer collaborative of board members, chief risk officers, and other c-level executives from more than 120 countries. David R. Koenig, founder of the Directors and Chief Risk Officers group, serves as Executive Director of the DCRO Institute.
