    Topic: Establishing the ROI for IT and Product Development Projects

    Creating clear criteria for a risk-return on an IT project versus a product development can be a challenge for financial executives, especially when resources are limited.  Though they have certain similarities, they also have key differences.  Many of the elements of risk can be identified and handled through applying industry best practices with respect to establishing the business case, risk planning and implementation of an effective gating methodology.  The rigour applied can and should be scaled appropriately to the size of the endeavour, and your risk tolerance.

    Nigel Fonseca, CEO of SWI and the SWI Group of Companies have been part of executing hundreds of projects and developed a number of products over their 35+ year history.  They have extensive experience in assessing if and how these risk factors can be turned into hard metrics that allow you to make more timely decisions around these projects.  Join us for what promises to be a hard hitting and frank discussion on how to establish this ROI criteria for IT and product development projects.
