  13. 13. The CFO View(c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  14. 14. Risk and Return• Most organisations borrow money to fund their operations• Organisations with surplus cash can earn 4-6% interest with little risk• Why would you undertake a risky project if it returned 6%? o It is not covering financing cost or; o Park the money and earn interest risk free o This is called “Cost of Capital”• We need to discount the cash flows (DCF) by the cost of capital (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  15. 15. Your ROI Model (Discounted)• Let’s assume an 8% cost of capital = 0.08 Year Investment Benefit Cash Flow Discounted Cash Flow 0 -$100,000 0 -$100,000 -$100,000 1 -$20,000 $40,000 $20,000 $18518 (20000 / 1.08) 2 -$20,000 $60,000 $40,000 $34294 (40000 / 1.08^2) 3 -$20,000 $80,000 $60,000 $47630 (60000 / 1.08^3) Total $20,000 $442 (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010

  17. 17. Platitudes“The Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence" (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  18. 18. The Platitude IndicatorIf you cannot reasonably disagree with anobjective, or measure it, then it is a platitude ‘Most corporate mission statements are worthless. They often formulate necessities as objectives; for example, "to achieve sufficient profit." This is like a person saying his mission is to breathe sufficiently.’ Russel Ackoff (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  19. 19. SharePoint Platitudes“We are improving collaboration” (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  20. 20. SharePoint Platitudes “We are improving collaboration”“We are providing a best-practice collaboration platform” (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  21. 21. SharePoint Platitudes “We are improving collaboration” “We are providing a best-practice collaboration platform”“We are providing a quality collaborative experience for our users” (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  22. 22. SharePoint Platitudes “We are improving collaboration” “We are providing a best-practice collaboration platform”“We are providing a quality collaborative experience for our users” “It’s a SharePoint project” (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  23. 23. A Non Platitude Example “To produce high-quality, low cost, easy to use products that incorporate hightechnology for the individual. We are proving that high technology does not have to be intimidating for noncomputer experts.“ Apple Mission Statement (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  24. 24. SharePoint Non Platitudes “We are proving that through better information management, we can improve our customer relationship and trust building without over-burdening our staff” “We are proving that we can grow the organisation whilereducing email volumes and centralising document storage”“By building communities of practice, we prove that we canreduce information overload and allow our users to find the right expertise” (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  25. 25. I’m Too Uncertain to Estimate…• We implement new tools and systems to make a positive difference o Otherwise why bother?• Ask yourself what the ‘difference’ actually looks like o This is where you will find your metrics o Example: Faster turnaround, reduced wastage, reduced complaints, repeat business, reduced customer churn, etc o Hint: visit www.kpilibrary.com for a database of potential measures (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  26. 26. I’m Too Uncertain to Estimate…• It is not about finding the *exact* value o Vaguely right is better than precisely wrong o Provide an estimate within a lower and upper range that you feel confident about o If your CFO does not like your estimate, run a workshop to reduce the range, but do not be coerced into reducing your uncertainty! o The range of possibilities can be modelled via the discount cash flow method (c) Seven Sigma Business Solutions 2010
  27. 27. Key Takeaways• Geeks don’t sign the cheques, CFO’s don’t architect SharePoint – Some shared understanding goes a long way• Ensure that you take into account cost of capital when modelling ROI• Do not chase mirages disguised as platitudes – Platitudes delude us into thinking that we have an end in mind when we actually do not – Hone your platitude radar – Don’t confuse the means with the end. Focus on the difference SharePoint will make.• If you are uncertain, offer a ranged estimate and model the possibilities – Don’t be coerced into artificially reducing your uncertainty.
