Evaluating Costs and Benefits
Decisions involving capital expenditures often require managers to weigh the costs and benefits of different options related to the same goal or project. For instance, deciding whether to replace, repair, or do nothing to existing equipment is a capital expenditure decision that involves calculations, projections, and deliberations. Similarly in HR management, deciding whether to train from within or outsource involves alternate expenses. Managers must be able to quantitatively analyze different options for capital expenditure to identify the best business decisions having the greatest estimated long term ROI.
