How much of the risks need to be controlled? How and why? Is there a refinement of the business case imminent? Now, in such a case, the traditional approach fails…mainly due to the fact that most ‘traditional’ approaches stop at ‘reporting’ and they believe in passing the ‘strategic’ information to some other stakeholder. This is far from what is required from any manager!

Explain the various parameters. Attribute the factors to the model and compare them. Once the reader understands these aspects, it is relatively easy to understand which stereotype would provide the manager with better information to guide him through a more robust decision-making process. To summarize, therefore, the context of stereotyping is important to understand. Slinger [3] has given a useful overview to this question.
