Rick is a risk manager and is always asking himself: "Who should I lend to?" and "How much can they afford?".

Fran is a financial manager and often has to deal with account management issues like the expected credit losses. 

While Mary finds herself in customer engagement and worries about who she should target and what channels she should use.
