All of the following are forms of cognitive bias except:_____.A. Confirmation bias: This bias occurs when decision makers seek out evidence that confirms their previously held beliefs, while discounting or diminishing the impact of evidence in support of differing conclusions. B. Anchoring: This is the overreliance on an initial single piece of information or experience to make subsequent judgments. Once an anchor is set, other judgments are made by adjusting away from that anchor, which can limit one’s ability to accurately interpret new, potentially relevant information. C. Shifting: This is the bias involved in shifting perspectives too rapidly, thereby forgoing objectivity and sound reasoning. D. Halo effect: This is an observer’s overall impression of a person, company, brand, or product, and it influences the observer’s feelings and thoughts about that entity’s overall character or properties. It is the perception, for example, that if someone does well in a certain area, then they will automatically perform well at something else regardless of whether those tasks are related. E. Overconfidence bias: This bias occurs when a person overestimates the reliability of their judgments. This can include the certainty one feels in her own ability, performance, level of control, or chance of success.

Answers

Answer:

The correct answer is letter "B": nonphysical constraints.

Explanation:

In the same sense, nonphysical constraints are not material factors negatively influencing employees' actions. Wages cuts, reduction of benefits, unclear lines of command are examples of that kind of constraint.

                                       = $45 - $27

                                       = $18

Baker's product manager continues to perform well in the market. However, a competing product is coming on strong and is looking to take over as the market share leader in the segment. Without sacrificing contribution margin, what can the Baker product manager do in order to improve upon the buying criteria, and thus potentially increase demand

Answers

Question options :

Increase MTBF by 2000

Reposition Cake to make it even smaller and higher performing

Increase the promotion budget to gain greater awareness

Lower the selling price since it is the second most important buying criteria

Answer:

Increase the promotion budget to gain greater awareness

Explanation:

In this case, some managers might consider reducing price and may be affecting contribution margin in this way(because selling price/profit is reduced and price- variable cost =contribution margin). While price reduction might be a good strategy to compete in the market, it might not be the best option here. in order to increase demand in a case such as this, the manager should consider increasing product awareness so as to reach more potential buyers and increase market share compared to competitors.
