Improve Your Bottom Line
A study conducted by Queen’s University found that companies with a mature ERM program are proven to realize up to a 25% premium on their market value. With data like that, it’s undeniable that the work we do as risk managers is incredibly important to our organizations.
Justify Investment in Your Program
If you’ve ever needed to pitch the importance of your ERM program to the board or other stakeholders, the RMM serves as a great tool to warrant additional spend or resources. Quantifying the areas for improvement you need to reach a respectable level of maturity can help significantly when making your case.
Learn From Industry Leaders
The RMM highlights industry best practices to apply to your own organization’s efforts, no matter how unique your structure, culture or strategic goals. These standards can be applied to various areas across the enterprise and can serve as the foundation for your work for years to come.

Frequently Asked QuestionsFoundations of the Risk Maturity Model
What is the Risk Maturity Model and how can it help build a sustainable enterprise risk management program?
The Risk Maturity Model (RMM) is a best practice framework and risk maturity assessment tool authored by LogicManager in 2005, in collaboration with the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS). The RMM helps organizations across industries benchmark their risk management capabilities, identify strengths, and understand weak links that inhibit further ERM performance. By using the RMM, organizations can develop and improve sustainable enterprise risk management programs that provide a direct link to business value and performance. A mature ERM program sees gaps in processes as opportunities for improved performance and takes steps to effectively identify, mitigate, and monitor risks, thereby lowering the overall risk level of the organization. Today, the RMM is available within the LogicManager application for professionals and executives to use.
Not only can the RMM help you measure your current risk maturity, but the LogicManager platform will help you execute on improving your program over time and become more mature in the long run. The RMM allows organizations to score their risk programs on a five-level scale, and receive an immediate downloadable report, which provides information not only on current maturity levels as well as ideas on what it may take to achieve a higher level of maturity in each of seven attributes. The Risk Maturity Model provides an actionable internal guide that corporations of all sizes, industries, and geographies can use to improve their enterprise risk management maturity from whatever level they are at today.
Every department within your organization holds risk. The natural extension of this means that every department then also benefits from a mature risk management program, that helps mitigate and manage that risk. If these processes aren’t being done throughout your organization, you aren’t gaining the benefits of a mature program. Without evaluating the maturity of your program, you increase the risk of misalignment between your ERM team and the frontlines of your organization.
A mature risk management program also helps mitigate the risk of negligence within your organization. In order to not be found negligent, you must have a way of proving that the risks that materialized into the incident leading to the negligence claim were disclosed to your stakeholders. This is always addressed in a mature ERM program.
