WHAT? Join Professor Harrigan as she discusses how testing for Corporate Advantage can help you make critical decisions. She will explore the following scenario: If two different firms were courting a smaller company with the objective of buying it, how might you, the CEO of the smaller company, decide which one would make the better "corporate parent"? Is the difference between the two suitors so great as to overcome a simple comparison of the price each is willing to pay? Dr. Harrigan will field questions at the completion of her discussion.
