In today's organizations, project sponsors and those who have responsibility for project success are held more accountable than ever for the financial impact of their programs. Show Me the Money provides managers and executives with a much-needed systematic process for determining the monetary value of those projects.
World-renowned ROI experts Jack and Patti Phillips offer step-by-step guidance for anyone involved in implementing major projects--human capital programs, technology implementations, systems integration, new processes, Six Sigma, product design, new policies and procedures, or any other project where significant expenditures of time and money are at stake. They detail how to identify, collect, analyze, and report a host of different data in a consistent manner, creating a process that will generate a balanced set of measurements that are believable, realistic, accurate, and capable of driving organizational improvements by identifying barriers to and enablers of success.
While many books address accountability in a certain function or process, this book's method works across all types of processes, ranging from leadership development to the implementation of new technology and from educational programs to public policy initiatives. Accessible and chock-full of illustrative examples and practical advice, this is an indispensable guide to bottom-line accountability for any manager or executive concerned with the valuation of projects, programs, processes, and people.
