RoSS Model

Best Practices in Project Benefit Validation

An Interactive Session with Operational Excellence Expert Julie Brignac

 Identifying project benefits and estimating an accurate return on investment (ROI) can be very challenging for most organizations.

Why does ROI so often go unmeasured?  Some organizations are satisfied with the general improvement in their financial statements after implementing a series of projects, regardless of the function or methodology used to facilitate those projects.  Others have not deemed it necessary to reconcile the benefits to the company financials because the company is holistically performing better as a result of those projects.  Finally, some companies attempt to measure ROI, yet they are unsure how to quantify project benefits, especially if their business is focused more in a services industry where benefits are often termed as "soft" or "immeasurable".

We've discovered an effective way to validate project benefits for all types of projects, so that the predictive impact on the business is more accurately estimated, reported and reconciled by both the project leaders and by finance.

Over many years of working in and with Fortune 500 companies in project and general management, business improvement and finance functions, a team at a company called QuantumSix Solutions, Inc. has developed and honed a process and a set of principles to address the challenge of project benefit validation.  This unique method, called The RoSS (Return on Strategic Spending) Model®, is an end-to-end financial tracking and reconciliation process that delivers results for companies striving to better understand and quantify the benefits that their projects are delivering.  The RoSS Model® folds seamlessly into an existing project governance process and implements a rigorous financial infrastructure that drives better business decisions regarding project impact.


Who Should Attend?

Those involved with implementing projects that require a gauge of financial impact.  This specifically includes project managers, Lean / Six Sigma black belts, and Continuous Improvement program managers.

The RoSS Model is equally valuable to practitioners and their managers / executives, alike.
