Visão (Portuguese) = Vision – the ability to imagine how a country, society, industry, etc. could develop in the future and to plan in a suitable way.

Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary

"Risk - let's get this straight up front - is good. The point of risk management is not to eliminate it; that would eliminate reward. The point is to manage it - that is, to choose where to place bets and where to avoid betting altogether."

Thomas Stewart, Fortune
