The duality of Risk


Companies that go bankrupt have often taken great risks, such as betting on untested products, new technology, or large investments with hefty resulting debts. However, the same can be said of companies who have generated growth and value creation. The purpose with this project is to improve the ability of companies to predict when to undertake the risk. We attempt to take advantage of the experience of companies with previous projects, in order to typify the leadership competencies, as well as the specific macro, field, and company conditions leading to growth and value creation or value destruction and potential reconstruction/bankruptcy. The ultimate purpose of the research is to help decision-makers optimize their risk assessment and that they will hopefully thereby conduct more (risky) projects that lead to growth and growth creation, reducing the number of failed risky project.
