A regional director of a consulting firm must decide how to compete for a major consulting contract. Appshop can take a level payment contract, a lower level payment with a prospective bonus given high performance, or bid on an RFP where a significant reward is given contingent on the client's savings.

It affords an opportunity to simulate alternative risk profiles and to discuss their comparative advantages.
