Risk Value Matrix Template

Have you ever become overwhelmed with opportunities which you aren't certain whether or not you should pursue? In many areas of life, especially business management, this can often be the case. In times like these, it is absolutely necessary to find a method for determining which actions should be taken and which should be rejected. It may seem like one should always take an opportunity, but the truth is that some may involve far too many risks- more than it is worth!

The Risk Value Matrix assesses each action, keeping in mind the value of that action and the risks involved if it were to be chosen. Its use is simple!

  1. Actions that are of a high value and involve low risk should always be chosen.
  2. Actions that are of a high value and involve high risk and actions should be analyzed to determine whether or not they should be chosen. These may be worth your time, but they may also be dangerous.
  3. Actions that are of a low value and involve low risk are everyday tasks. These are neither extremely beneficial or dangerous.
  4. Actions that are of a low value and involve high risk should never be chosen. These are too dangerous and not worth your time.
