I understand that the Maximin approach is risk averse and you seek alternatives. For demand questions, it is easy to calculate. My difficulty is when I am faced with a non demand question. Do you look at the alternatives vertically or horizontally?
Hope this makes sense and thank you.October 24, 2019 at 11:11 pm
Hi – there is no set rule for this – but conventionally CIMA questions have shown the decisions in the columns along the top … and the outcomes which are not controllable along the rows at the side.
The context of the question should make it clear which aspect is controllable and which is not – so always read the question to ensure correct interpretation of the payoff table given.
Hope this helps
