Taktisk riskbenägenhet: en kvantitativ studie om riskbenägenhet hos officerare med olika bakgrund och erfarenheter

Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to answer the question of what differences in risk propensity may exist between Swedish Army Officers from different branches and those with or without experience from international deployments. Since different individuals can perceive risks in different ways a discrepancy can arise between how different decision makers act in different tactical situations. This can have consequences in combat through decision makers who expose themselves and others to unnecessarily large risks, or decision makers who fail to act through an excessive risk perception.

The thesis aims to discover whether such differences exist within the Swedish Army, to avoid catastrophic outcomes in combat because units or individuals are acting in a way that is not advantageous to the task, and directly or indirectly creates an even more risky situation. The survey was conducted through a questionnaire survey, where the data was analysed to test two hypotheses, one relating to the different branches and the other regarding experience from international deployments. The analysis showed that the differences between groups were not statistically significant and that the hypotheses cannot be proven.
