May Event - Coming May 26th

How to Define the Intangible and Justify Return on Change Efforts

As change management practitioners, we often have to protect our work from the budgetary chopping block. But change efforts can be difficult to quantify, and proving a return on investment to stakeholders can seem impossible.

It doesn't have to be.

Learning about multi-variate analysis and Fermi questions can provide you with compelling return on investment models that justify comprehensive change interventions.

In this session, you will learn how to…

       …develop models that can simulate the possible outcomes of change efforts

       …explain how measurement can justify the benefits of change efforts by reducing uncertainty

       …make better decisions and recognize opportunity costs with simple, tangible tools that quantify the abstract benefits of change
