Scenario Analysis

In risk analysis, the process of considering different, possible outcomes of a decision. Scenario analysis may take a number of forms; for example, a company may consider the various potential returns on an investment and how each will affect the company's other business. Scenario analysis can also be used in policy making: the president can weight potential effects of a tax increase when deciding whether or not it would be beneficial to do so.
