The Adaptive Metrics Center

Risk Intelligence Metrics Training

AMC offers a three-day Certificate workshop in Risk Intelligence Metrics (CRIM). If you take the workshop you'll learn how to develop models you can use to measure how competing agents compare to one another in risk intelligence. The workshop is divided into four segments:

In conceptual foundations, the workshop provides an approach covering basic categories for thinking about

The conceptual framework gives you the tools you need to think about indicators, measurement models and metrics for measuring risk intelligence.

The measurement modeling methodology specifies the steps needed to arrive at quantitative risk intelligence metrics. It takes you through the stages of developing an ontology model, specifying a measurement model from that, getting ratings you can use to develop attribute weights and scores to measure different levels of risk intelligence among agents, and performing ratings consistency tests so you can check out the logic of your raters. It also covers facilitation approaches you can use to accomplish model development and testing.

The methodology is illustrated by presenting a number of models for generating risk intelligence metrics developed by AMC.

Finally, the workshop presents you with an opportunity to work with a software application to develop a risk intelligence metric.

The CRIM workshop includes workshop notes, a personal licensed copy of AMC's risk intelligence metrics report, or any other adaptive metrics report of your choice, and supplementary textbook material. Workshops also include continental breakfast, morning and afternoon coffee breaks and lunches.

Requirements to Attend

The  program does not require any specific level of education or previous experience as a prerequisite for enrollment. It was developed with corporate or program level executives in mind, whose duties include not just the execution of isolated or narrow projects, but the development of enterprise-wide strategies/programs and multi-dimensional, multi-year implementations. CRIM provides a blueprint for designing, implementing, and executing  risk intelligence metrics. Thus, managers responsibility for risk measurement, assessment, and management will get the most out of this program. It is the only one of its kind.


The CRIM™ program is taught by Joseph M. Firestone, Ph.D. creator of CRIM™, co-author of 'The Open Enterprise -- Building Business Architectures for Openness and Sustainable Innovation' (KMCI Online Press, 2003) and 'Key Issues in The New Knowledge Management (KMCI Press, Butterworth-Heinemann, 2003), and author of Enterprise Information Portals and Knowledge Management (KMCI Press, Butterworth-Heinemann, 2003), and Risk Intelligence Metrics: An Adaptive Metrics Center Industry Report (KMCI Online Press, 2006). Joe is also Co-instructor in KMCI's CKIM™ program, and has taught at Michigan State University, SUNY at Buffalo, SUNY at Binghamton, and the University of Hawaii.
