Summary "Often organizations looking to implement project management have great difficulty justifying their expenditures on training, personnel, processes, systems, and software. This book will provide the methodology and tools developed by Jack Phillips and the ROI Institute which are needed by organizations to gather data that can be used to justify their capital investments into project management. The research conducted will allow them to justify their investments. The Philips methodology has become the defacto ROI methodology for evaluating training and company initiatives. Deployment of this methodology for evaluating the value of project management is invaluable for the project management community. This will justify to senior executives the strategic value that they will realize from their investment into project management. The book will follow PMI's PMBOK and will also provide real world cases of both successful and not-so-successful project management ROI"-- Provided by publisher.
