What is the Winterling Crisis Matrix?
The Interlink Crisis Matrix, or simply crisis matrix, designed by Klaus Winterling, is an analytical tool that categorizes risk along two parameters:
- Probability of Occurrence - The matrix identifies three levels of probability - low, medium, and high.
- Effects of the Risk - This concerns the impact if the uncertain event were to occur. The matrix defines three levels of effect - negative, threatening, and destructive.
The amount of attention and effort that should be invested in managing the potential occurrence rises as the probability of occurrence rises. Also, occurrences with a greater effect should be given more attention at lower probabilities of occurrence.
