Test Your Knowledge – Opportunity Costs

Opportunity costs are an economic concept to quantify benefits of alternatives that were ignored while making a decision. Precisely, opportunity costs are the value of the best alternative that was not chosen.

For example: In a case interview, as a part of a business solution for a food supermarket, you recommend to use a share of the space for pre-prepared food items instead of a small restaurant (best alternative). Here, opportunity costs would be the revenues that would have been made by utilizing the space for the small restaurant instead of pre-prepared food items. 

Are you able to incorporate opportunity costs into you case solving process?
