Also question is, how do you calculate the value of a project?
It is calculated by deducting the expected costs or investment of a project from its expected revenue and then dividing this (net profit) by the expected costs in order to get a return rate. Other factors such as inflation and interest rates on borrowed money may be factored into ROI calculations.
What is opportunity cost in project management?
Opportunity cost is the loss of potential future return from the best alternative project when a choice is required for several mutually exclusive projects. It can also be defined as “the opportunity (potential return) that will NOT be realized for the second best project not selected”.
