Illustrate the Time Value of Money
As the project manager, in a paper, explain how the time value of money will impact your project. Demonstrate by example from your project why it is important for companies to consider the time value of money when selecting projects to undertake:
• How can delaying a project task decision affect the time value of money in a positive way?
• In a negative way?
Include as an appendix to your paper a projection of the costs of your project for in excess of one (1) year. Create a spreadsheet that illustrates your interpretation of the results and will identify at what point in your project decisions will have an effect on the cost of money.
Hint: It is realized the example may not be totally accurate and aligned with the project, but for explanation purposes propose a brief scenario within your paper that aligns with the project as closely as possible and will allow you to explain by example the time value of money.
Support your assignment’s response with a minimum of three (3) external resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
Length: 5 pages not including title and reference pages plus appendix: Spreadsheet with sufficient detail to demonstrate knowledge of time value of money calculations and a supporting explanation of the calculated results
Your response should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
