Presented “Project Schedules and Return on Investment” at the PMI North America Congress

Alex S. Brown, PMP IPMA-C

Presented at the PMI North America Congress in Atlanta, Georgia on October 8, 2007. Paper available on this site.

Explains key financial terms, including return on investment, time value of money, payback period, and first-to-market advantage. Applies these financial concepts to sample projects, to help project managers understand the business impact of schedule changes.

This paper was published on the site in 2006, but had to be taken down once it was accepted for the PMI Congress. The paper is now available on the site once again.
