# Time Warp CVP Analysis

It is now 1/2/2012 (again), still at the beginning of Time Warp 2. You have just completed your revised strategy using CVP analysis, and you are ready to charge ahead. You implement your decisions for 2012 and time flows by quickly. You see the results at the end of the year and you collect these results to use later. Again, you implement your decisions that you have already made for 2013 and collect the results at the end of the year. You do the same for 2014 and 2015, hoping this time that you can finally move ahead into 2016.

It is now New Year's Eve, 2015, what you hope is the end of Time Warp2 and more than that, what you hope is the end of the time warps altogether. You have the results of your decisions. How did you do? What was your final score? You are ready to celebrate. You want to celebrate hard and forget this crazy time warp stuff. Will it finally be 2016 when you wake up?

It's New Year's day, 2016. You just had a great New Year's Eve celebration, you finished another four years of moving Handheld through 2012 - 2015, and are ready to charge ahead into the future. As you turn on the TV and try to open your eyes, you notice something strange (again?). The TV commentator is saying something about New Year's Day, 2012. You have a sinking feeling, and sure enough, it's back to 1/1/2012. You groan and curse. When will this time warp end? You are now in Time Warp 3.

Maybe you need to keep improving Handheld's performance so that you can finally move ahead. You avow to do better this time. And you think your best approach is to develop your four year strategy like you did the last time.

You analyze the results of your last set of decisions from 2012 to 2015. You have the data, you kept it all. And you are going to use CVP analysis again to help you determine your new strategy. And you have a tool to use, the CVP Calculator. You are going to get better at it.

You analyze the results from Time Warp2 using CVP and develop your complete four year strategy. You decide to make notes about your analysis and your reasoning process, just in case you have to do this again (You are praying that you can finally move ahead this time when you get to 2016.)

You finish your report that shows the strategy that you are going to use these next four years, Time Warp 3. And you stop and take a big breath before you move ahead into 2012. (In other words - don't run this strategy in the simulation, yet. Just turn in this report.)

Run the simulation with the Strategy that you developed in SLP3 for Time Warp2. Access the simulation site Click here. Review and analyze these results (Time Warp 2 decisions) and develop a revised strategy for Time Warp 3. Make a case for this new strategy using analysis and relevant theories.
