Introduction

In the previous chapter, we proposed an approach by which the risk assessing agent ascertains the different representations and the different severity level/s in the occurrence of perceived transactional risk (transactional risk) in a business activity. The next step is for the risk assessing agent to evaluate the determined level/s of transactional risk to make a decision about his future course in forming a business association with a risk assessed agent. Alternatively, the risk assessing agent may have to make a decision about choosing an agent from a set of risk assessed agents with whom to form a business association. This occurs in the risk evaluation phase, which is the next stage in the process of risk analysis. In the risk evaluation phase, the risk assessing agent utilizes the determined severity level/s of transactional risk in forming a business association with the risk assessed agent; and then evaluates this to determine whether or not it is within acceptable or tolerable limits. In other words, by evaluating the determined level/s of transactional risk, the risk evaluation phase assists the risk assessing agent to make an informed interaction-based decision about the risk assessed agent.
