Risks are an inevitable part of growth. Yet, individuals and organizations must learn to maneuver their ways out with minimum negative impact. One of the practical ways to do so is by creating a risk control matrix or a risk assessment matrix.


A risk control matrix provides a clear picture of the risks your organization faces. It is a one-stop matrix to identify threats, align them based on their level of harm, and then look for solutions to tackle them accordingly. By plotting those risks between their likelihood and consequence levels, individuals and organizations can initiate mitigation techniques.




Once plotted, a risk control matrix can be referred to from time to time when developing strategies or allocating resources. Diagrammatically, it is available in two formats, raw and original, and as a tabular record.


Threats are identified via color-coded cells as low, medium, or high in this table. Needless to say that this representation must be made readable, editable, and shareable so as to be recognized as a continuous company resource. 


Now, you can either try creating one from scratch or turn to your favorite PowerPoint template hub, SlideTeam, which promises only professional and high-quality PPT designs. For instance, it offers the best and the most practical risk control matrix templates that conform to your editable, compatible, and shareable requirements. Scroll below!
