    I need some help with a few tables. Just basic - nothing length in answer. No paper as I will write the paper.
    Below, I have attached the scenario from which to work and the tables. The tables require alternative solutions - risks & probabilities, consequence & severity, and mitigation techniques. Include in table two the optimal solution. Table three requires deliverables and time lines. Last table has end state goals, metrics, and target.

    Both the table and scenario will be attached below.
    Thank you
