alternative courses of action 3
Reschedule the meeting and improve the business plan
Pros: Less expensive, better business plan outcome which can lead to favorable results. Cons: time consuming and increase opportunity costs.
We encourage Jim to reschedule the meeting and hire a business consultant to give him enough time to research and improve the shortcomings of his previous business plan. Though the consequences of this action would be time consuming and expensive, the results would be greater than the consequences. Thus Jim will confidently impress the banker and will lead to the approval of his loan.
