    What We Do

  • Provide risk modeling services to companies.

  • Identify the key drivers in their plans, budgets or forecasts. What is the source of data behind those Key drivers? Each one of those drivers can be expressed as a range of values, determined by management opinion, expert opinion or historical behavior.

  • Using @RISKTM  software, an add-in to Microsoft Excel®the single point estimates are converted to probability distributions. 

  • Thousands of iterations are then run and a picture emerges of the risk and the sensitivity of each of the drivers.

  • You are able to see a wide range of outcomes and the likelihood of any one of them occurring.
