Excellent illustration of a common business problem

Monday, June 18, 2007

Even one presentation like this video is too much. Tell me how you plan to achieve actual business results, and give me some realistic numbers. The hockey stick doesn't cut it without significant justification. What really bothers me is when I'm told (especially by my own management), "the numbers are just too hard to get, but there is absolutely a positive ROI to this". Nine times out of 10 it's a cop out, and the translation is that you're just too lazy to do the analysis you should be doing.
