## Expected monetary value explanation on E11.07 Deci 8 years 4 months ago #988

 Francisco Jimenez Buendia Topic Author Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 1 Thank you received: 0 Hi I would like to ask about the calculation done for the expected monetary value on E11.07. The explanation about expected monetary value in the video at 16:24 states that EMV for the outdoor tennis tournament is 315,000, which is the maximum of: -Rain:84,000 (0,4*210,000) -Sunshine:315,000 (0,6*525,000) However, from the example on PMBOK (figure 11-15, page 299) I had expected that EMV=84,000+315,000 Can you explain why using the maximum of Rain and Sunshine instead of the addition?

 Cormac Donnelly Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 1 Thank you received: 0 I just watched the same episode and had a similar question! My calculation (based on the example on page 299 of The PMBOK Guide is): Indoor: £418,000 = (0.4*£385,000) + (0.6*£440,000) Outdoor: £399,000 = (0.4*£210,000) + (0.6*£525,000) Therefore Decision EMV = £418,000. As per The PMBOK Guide, EMV calculates the average outcome, not just the best. Cornelis, please clarify! Regards, Cormac. Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.
