A bowtie is a diagram that visualises a risk in an easy to understand picture. The diagram shows the possible causes and consequences of an event, along with the controls put in place to manage the risk.
A bowtie diagram shows possible scenarios in a single picture. In short, it provides a simple, visual explanation of risk that would be more difficult, or take longer, in document form.
New insights often emerge from a bowtie that might not be clear from other risk analysis methods. The highly visual and participative nature of building a bowtie brings involvement from all levels of the organisation What you see in, and learn from, a bowtie diagram helps decision making.
