Simplicity. “I just want to know the basics.” Most of us aren’t interested in making cost-benefit analysis a career. We just want to know what to do and how to do it. We want to do it well and as quickly as possible. Lot’s of examples show how it is done.
Plain-English. “Talk to me in a language I can understand.” Abstract terms are avoided whenever possible. When they are used, simple definitions and examples make them clear to anyone.
Graphics. “I’m a visual person; I get the point when I see a good picture! I don’t want 1,000 words.” Project managers and other busy professionals repeatedly tell us that they don’t have time to study cost-benefit analysis. We listened. More than 400 graphics illustrate the key points.
Step-by-Step. “I want a procedural guide to tell me what to do and how to do it.” There are a lot of books that tell you what to do. This one shows you what to do and how to do it in just 8-steps.
IT Orientation. “How can I measure the benefits of information technology?” Although this procedure can be used for anything, the thrust of the examples is information technology. After all, IT impacts just about every aspect of business today.
Scaleable. “Can I use this for small and big projects?” The idea of knowing what you give (cost) and what you get back (benefits) is applicable to projects of any size. The procedure works equally well for choosing a cell-phone plan as it does for choosing a supply-chain management system.
