Default EOM 4 - Task 4 - Quickwich

I think I'm in (relatively) good shape for tasks 1-3. Having said that, I'm really not sure how to approach task 4. Were there any exercises or readings in module 4 that would be of use? I'm struggling with how to tackle this.

They are just asking for you to decide which risks need to be avoided or exploited, based on risk exposures and the company's risk appetite. For the risks you think they should avoid, you should recommend mitigation strategies. For the risks you think they can exploit, you should suggest exploitation strategies.

Hi,

Reviving this thread with a more specific question: To what extent did you (whoever's completed this exercise) account for the difference in risk exposure between 1) change in gross profit and 2) change in company value in suggesting mitigation or exploitation strategies for the 4 sample risks?

So far I've suggested strategies without regarding the difference in the magnitude of these exposures. Part of me wonders if this task shows both measures as somewhat of a red herring - a distraction to confuse students in proposing strategies.

Could someone simply clarify the hard and soft limit definitions? I am just not understanding what they are saying.
