28 27 Conclusion: Proceed in which direction? The number of variables, possible consequences and overlooked or misunderstood facts, makes accurate risk assessment close to impossible. The ability to predict the impacts of decisions is elusive and often wildly overestimated. In the absence of complex mathematical models, an individual is left with only instinct and an often vague sense of how to proceed. ©2010 KPMG LLP, a U.S. limited liability partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative.
