Abstract

This case details a decision problem of a Sales Executive, Jaffer. He is an excellent employee in meeting his targets. He was given a chance to boost his professional career by giving a presentation to his fellow executives in Bangalore. As Jaffer did not want to miss the target, he would go to Bangalore, only if he is confident of completing the target. Therefore, Jaffer needs to compute the probability that no more than one day is lost in the remaining 29 days due to any reason, and if this probability is sufficiently large, he may decide to accept the invitation.
