Mediating and Moderating Factors In Risk Appetite
What are the Mediating and Moderating Factors in defining Risk Appetite?
Sort By:
Mediating factors are ones which are directly related to risk appetite whereas moderating factors would be independent ones which can affect it.

If we are looking at individual stakeholder risk appetite, then a mediating factor might be the relative level of experience the stakeholder has with the work being considered. The greater the experience, the more likely their risk appetite will be higher.

One moderating factor would be the constraints on the project. These are independent variables, but the tighter they are, the greater their influence on the stakeholder's risk appetite.

I do agree with Kiron

"It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars and so on -- whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man -- for precisely the same reasons."

- Douglas Adams
