The Importance of Calculating ROIAmerican businesses spent over $125 billion in 2009 onemployee learning and development.! !Source: http://www.astd.org/content/research/stateOfIndustry.htm!Executives frequently need to calculate their costs, !beneﬁts, and likely return on purchasing new !learning technologies before they can make their !buying decision. !
The Quote Think like a lawyer. You won t be able to prove a !hard ROI number for your training investment. What !you want to demonstrate is a preponderance of !evidence that shows that your intervention works. !Many other business decisions, such as mergers and !acquisitions, are bets based on a preponderance of !evidence. Ask your business leaders to make a bet !on a learning intervention and then present a !preponderance of evidence that it works. !!(Elliot Masie, quoted by Bjorn Billhardt, 2011) !
