Matrix

The Risk matrix is a very quick snapshot  report showing the number of risks and issues in various states at the time the report is run, by likelihood & impact. For the purposes of identifying key corporate issues, there are two sets of tables for risks and issues respectively.

The purpose of the matrix is to identify the number of risks across the organisation whose risk score is considered high and therefore warrants closer attention.  Details of the actual risk or issues identified can be found by running a detailed risk report with the appropriate filter criteria defined.

  1. Go to the Reporting section of the site .  The default report page shown is for the risk register.

  2. Click on Matricies in the side menu .

  3. Select the required Organisation Unit from the pick-list.

  4. Choose the Output Format as either Standard (HTML) or Excel.  See Output Format Requirements.

  5. From Show Status tick the risk states you wish to include.  This defaults to showing all except Closed risks.  The report will show Raised and In Progress risks/issues in one set of grids, Controlled in another and Closed in a third.

  6. You may choose to filter by the organisation unit Grouping by selecting a group from the pick-list.

  7. Click the Submit button .  After a short delay the report will open in a new browser window as an HTML document.

  8. If you chose an HTML document you will need to use the page setup, print preview and printfunctions of your browser.

  9. If you chose an Excel spreadsheet you may now use the functionality of Excel to reformat and print the report as required.

  10. When you have finished with the report click the close button  at the top right corner of the report window.
