Change is hard and investing in new technology is risky no matter how you cut it. Whether a vendor has a solution to an issue, or a company leader is proposing a change, who is at the wheel and asking the tough questions. Even with a map and GPS we have all gotten lost. As decision makers, we are given a seemingly endless amount of data and promised solutions from vendors. When the solution is not in the GPS, and it is “recalculating”, how do we know we are investing smartly?
There is a never-ending stream of solutions out there, and decision makers are hounded with “solutions” that will “fundamentally change their business.” Successful decision makers can see through the marketing flair, root out generous assumptions made in a salesperson’s ROI analysis, and zero in on fact that will ensure that the business decision is the right one for the company, now and in the future.
This presentation will lift the hood on the secrets successful decision makes use when evaluating proposals and Business Case Analyses.
