RISK–REWARD ANALYSIS

Use this to determine if there is a reasonable balance between risk and reward.

The Risk–Reward Model seeks to capture the various options that are available to management in a simple graph. Using Reward as the vertical axis and Risk as the horizontal it’s possible to assign each option its place on the grid.
