Whether launching a new product, investing in equipment, or weighing the merits of an acquisition, CFOs typically rely on their capital planning process to help shape high-stakes decisions. However, biases can sometimes manifest throughout the planning process and impact decisions. We'll discuss:

  • The prevalence of biases in capital planning.
  • Attributes of cognitive biases, such as optimism bias, expert bias, and narrow framing, and how to identify them.
  • How to strip away biases to decrease the likelihood of seeing the world through a single lens.

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the perspectives to consider when making financial decisions.
