We have several Best Practice Guides in various areas of risk management. Each one of these guides is intended to be modular, simple, straightforward, and on a single page. Each one has up to 15 statements which describe the things you would expect to see if the organisation was at ‘best practice’ (see also Self-Assessment Tools below).
In each Best Practice Guide, the “What Does ‘Good’ Look Like?” is focused on outcomes. They answer the questions - How do we know that this organisation is good at this? What evidence is there? What things do they have in place? How are they doing this? Have they considered that?
The Best Practice Guides are intended to be consistent with existing and current standards and policies. They are meant to be generic and can be applied in both public and private sector organisations.
These guides aren’t meant to replace or compete with anyone else’s best practice guides. Other organisations will and do have them. However, many are complex, spanning many pages, and go into lots of detail. These are meant to be very simple, straightforward, one-page guides.

To complement the Best Practice Guides we have Self-Assessment Tools in the same areas of risk management. Each one of these tools is intended to be modular, simple, straightforward, and on a single page. Each one has up to 15 statements which describe the things you would expect to see if the organisation was at ‘best practice’ They are intended to be a simple 5 scale assessment on how well the organisation or business unit aligns with ‘best practice’.
The intention is that for each row in the table, the organisation or business unit populates the ‘Score’ column from 0 to 4 to indicate where they believe they sit in relation to each statement. Hence the graph underneath the table indicates the gaps that may need addressing. The tools here have been completed as an example to illustrate the concept.
