The Risk Matrix
The Risk Matrix is a tool used to quickly get an overview of the most important and urgent issues to prioritize. In the matrix, you put all the risks you have identified in one of the nine squares. If you have too many risks in the red square, you need to adjust what is considered medium risk and medium negative consequence. You are done when you have a maximum of three to five risks in the red slot.
The risks in the red square is the risk you must focus on until they are under control.
