Threats & Opportunities Matrix - 1.1 -

What is a Threats & Opportunities Matrix?

A Threats & Opportunities Matrix is a simple 2 x 2 grid that captures the threats of not implementing a proposed solution and, conversely, the potential opportunities if the solution is accepted. This matrix is often completed with a particular Stakeholder group in mind and then it becomes part of Stakeholder Management efforts.
