Demonstrating return on investment is critical to influence senior executives, defend budgets and staff and maximize personal and professional success. But according to a study done by Research Innovation and ROI and Quirk's, less than one-third of departments attempt to quantify the financial value of research to their respective organizations.
During this 90-minute training Webinar attendees will learn:
Guidelines for implementing an information tracking system among key stakeholders that will later enable ROI demonstration
Financial concepts critical to ROI
An overview of nine different methods to demonstrate ROI
Marketing cost reduction/avoidance
Opportunity identification/threat avoidance
Marketing campaign analysis
Estimated time saved/reduction in labor costs
Research portfolio method/departmental ROI
A framework for increasing return on investment at each stage of the research process
If you are one of the first five departments to register in response to this e-mail, you will also receive the “Demonstrating ROI Guidebook,” a 19-page Word document detailing specific strategies for quantifying the financial value of research.
Cost to attend is $499 per Department
