Those in top management will benefit from discussions of strong and weak points of various methods and concepts. <p> Included in the arsenal of capital investment tools in this book are concepts of proven usefulness, such as the MAPI method, no longer available in other works on the topic of capital budgeting, and other topics not covered elsewhere, such as abandonment analysis.
