Qualified Risk Directors® have specialized skills and experience in the positive governance of risk-taking. Their key traits are found across four critical areas: Business Acumen, Personal Attributes, Governance and Management of Risk, and relevant Education, each described in the DCRO Qualified Risk Director® Guidelines (see below). Qualified Risk Directors® aren't simply former risk managers. Rather, they are people who see risk in the important context of organizations achieving their purpose and goals, have experience with p&l accountability, and bring a forward-looking, dynamic mindset to the critical strategic and oversight roles of the board.
