Evaluation of potential projects by weighted scoring matrix:
A five year project has a projected net cash flow of $20,000, $25,000, $35,000, $15,000, and $25,000 in the next five years. It will cost $60,000 to implement the project. If the required rate of return is 25%, conduct a discounted cash flow calculation to determine the NPV.
2. The ‘Flying Kites' Company has set up a weighted scoring matrix for evaluation of potential projects. Below are three projects under consideration.
a. Using the scoring matrix below, which project would you rate highest? Lowest?
b. If the weight for " Strong Sponsor" is changed from 2.0 to 5.0, will the project selection change? What are the three highest weighted project scores with this new weight?
c. Why is it important that the weights mirror critical strategic factors?
