First of all, congratulations on reflecting on your case performance so thoroughly!
This is indeed an interesting question which is probably relevant for quite a lot of users, so I am happy to provide my perspective on it:
- In the prompt, it is written “Against the background of expected stagnating sales for the current financial year, short-term action is required.” As such, I would advise you to assume no revenue growth in the projection.
- Still, in real life, your approach would most probably be the correct one since absolutely stable revenues are unrealistic either.
In case you want a more detailed discussion on how to best communicate contingencies, please feel free to contact me directly.
I hope this helps,
