You are a divisional manager. Currently you are a member of a committee that is considering two product investments proposed by two other divisional managers, Joe and John. While walking over to the presentations, Joe seems rather arrogant. He mentions that he golfs with the CEO, is a key player in the firm, and that you could really learn a lot from him. In thinking over the projects after the presentations, you find that you are really leaning toward John’s proposal even though the projects are quite similar in terms of estimated cash flows and risks. How can you explain this?
