Determining and delivering business value
1 Day Intensive Seminar Workshop
Show me the money!” Companies
are demanding detailed evidence of IT investments’ financial
value. Yet, few in IT know how to calculate or communicate, let
alone deliver, Return on Investment (ROI). Moreover, traditional
ROI calculations may tell only part of the necessary story, and
several proprietary alternative techniques are being touted. The
difficulty is greatest in areas like testing, where benefits often
seem intangible and crunched time places a premium on flexibility.
This interactive workshop shows how to define, calculate, and
convincingly communicate the business value of IT investments,
both for IT projects as a whole and for specific technical approaches,
such as test automation. Exercises enhance learning by allowing
participants to practice applying practical techniques to realistic
* The financial information that business
decision makers need and demand.
* ROI and related calculations, strengths and weaknesses.
* Identifying the full set of costs and benefits.
* Quantifying intangibles, risk, and flexibility.
* Presenting and reporting business value measurements
so people pay attention.
