Black Swans or Just Wishful Thinking and Misinterpretation

 

“Black Swan” has become a popular buzzword for contingency planners, risk managers and consultants.

Due to the uptick in Black Swan sightings as of late, it’s worth the pause to decide if there should be actual concern or is this a situation of media hype? The tough part of that decision is because of a general lack of knowledge when it comes to these Black Swan sightings, better known as a rare event with serious consequences. This white paper reviews what may be perceived as or classified as a Black Swan by the media driven hype that dominates the general populace may, in fact, not be a Black Swan at all for a minority of key decision makers, executives and involved parties.  This poses a significant challenge for planners, strategists and CEO’s.
