In an increasingly competitive world, organizations and corporations increasingly need to understand which areas of their business deliver the greatest value. Whereas sales and income may be directly measured, deriving the benefits of internal expenditure is far less clear, yet it is vitally important to an efficient organization.

In this talk the Founder of the ROI Institute, Dr. Jack Phillips, will explain how business impact and Return On Investment (ROI) may be credibly measured for internal projects, programs and initiatives such as those run by Human Resources, Learning and Development, Information Technology, Quality, Logistics and the like - departments that provide essential services to an organization yet are often unable to derive and explain benefits quantitatively in terms of business impact, dollars and cents.

This talk with be of particular interest to cost-center holders and division heads, directors and leaders, and any executives interested in understanding and showing value of deliverables within a complex organization.
