Assessing impact on management risk, Financial Management

Assessing Impact:

As with the assessment of likelihood, a valuable way of assessing impact would be the creation of categories of impact as follows:

Level

Descriptor

Description

A

Insignificant

Negligible. No risk of injury, low $ loss, small delays, no reputation impact

B

Minor

Easily remedied, medium $ impact

C

Moderate

High $ loss, capability impaired, moderate impact on reputation

D

Major

Major $ loss, major impact on reputation

E

Catastrophic

Extreme $ loss (bankruptcy), huge political impact, total loss of reputation

The end result of the evaluation process would be to classify each event with a probability figure (1 to 5), and an impact figure (A to E).

Just as it is critical to involve as many people as possible in the identification phase, a variety of people should be involved in the evaluation phase. Not everyone has the same views of whether a particular event is likely to occur, or the impact that event would have on the business.  By getting a number of viewpoints a truer picture of the risk invariably arises.
