Active Risk today announced that Active Risk Manager (ARM) has been selected by The Royal Navy as the risk management software to support its commitment to increasing the maturity of risk processes throughout the organization, to underpin all aspects of the successful delivery of its strategic objectives.
 
Lieutenant Barry McNally RN, the Royal Navy’s Risk Manager said, ‘Defence Reform has seen a greater delegation of responsibility for the delivery of Programmes and Projects from the Ministry of Defence Head Office to the Front Line Commands. As such, we at the Royal Navy needed to review and improve our approach to Risk Management, to ensure we have a robust and relevant framework capable of supporting all aspects of our varied business across both ‘Change Management’ and ‘Business as Usual’. Crucially, we saw the need to invest in an intelligent solution that would assist us to concentrate people towards effective risk management and away from bureaucratic risk reporting. The flexibility and adaptability of ARM has allowed us to create a tailored software solution that will underpin our new approach to Risk Management.”
 
Loren Padelford, Executive Vice President and General Manager at Active Risk said, “Continued pressure on defense budgets around the world means that effective risk management is a vital element in making sure projects and programmes are delivered to plan and strategic objectives are met. ARM has become the risk management system of choice for forward thinking Government and Defence organizations and the contractors who work with them to deliver strategic projects to cost and schedule. We are delighted that The Royal Navy has selected ARM to enable its drive to increase risk management maturity.”
 
ARM Government & Defence customers also include US Air Force, US Navy, UK Ministry of Defence, US Department of Homeland Security, NASA, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and EADS.
