Sensitivity Analysis

Sensitivity analysis is the investigation of how change in one variable affects change in another. For instance, sales volume could be affected by the number of sales persons. Managers use this kind of analysis to establish which variable have greatest impact on the outcome of the venture. In risk assessment, sensitivity analysis is used to minimize risk. This is done through making use of variables whose combinations would produce minimal risk and optimal gains. Therefore, instead of relying on inappropriate measures, sensitivity analysis could be opted instead of other mechanical and inefficient reactionary methods.
