One important topic that has been discussed this week has been managerial overconfidence, and whether this can have a positive effect overall. For this week’s assignment, assume that you have been appointed to a corporate committee that is evaluating two mutually exclusive projects, Project A and Project B. Each project is headed by a different manager. During the presentation of each project, the manager of A appears to be arrogant, and also mentions that the CEO of the company and he frequently play golf and have dinner after work. In considering each of the project’s presentations, you find that you are leaning much more closely to Project A, despite both projects being extremely similar with regard to timing and magnitude of cash flows. Instructions: For this week’s assignment write a 2-3 page account explaining what factors are at work influencing your managerial decision-making skills, along with an evaluation of whether these forces likely lead to better outcomes. Requirements:
• 2-3 pages in length (double-spaced). • Additional title and reference pages included. • Proper grammar and APA formatting must be followed. • See grading criteria on the following page.
Be sure to read the criteria by which your work will be evaluated before you write and again after you write.
