Identify and Maximize Business Value in Development

Paul Robinson, The College Board

Organizations often invest great sums of money and talent in software projects-often to no good end. A key factor is that many software managers and project teams have, at best, a cursory understanding of expected benefits and little or no quantifiable information about how to evaluate project outcomes-other than cost and end-date targets. Join Paul Robinson to explore a proven software project benefits lifecycle model, including how to: enhance business cases by creating quantitative and qualitative benefit statements; generate business-friendly project success goals and metrics; and track and report the realization of benefits throughout the project lifecycle. Learn how to gain and maintain executive management and team involvement while creating your project business cases, setting business value goals, and monitoring progress. Don't work on another project that realizes little business value and causes business executives to rail against IT and development for "wasting our money."
