This is a course material from the book Managerial Decision Making Under Risk and Uncertainty. The book is originally in Spanish and is untitled as Decisiones empresariales bajo riesgo e incertidumbre. The level of the book is basic. We use very few mathematics and it is expected to be used by managers.
In this sixth chapter we present the idea of sensitivity analysis. We illustrate the different ways to do sensitivity analysis with one, two and more variables. We include what if analysis with and without probabilities, reverse engineering, one and two way tables, scenarios, and Montecarlo Simulation (MCS). We use intensively the spreadsheet.
