You may remember that scene from the movie Jerry Maguire where Cuba Gooding Jr utters the infamous phrase “Show Me the MONEY!” In a similar vein decision makers often ask to be shown the ROI.

We get asked about ROI on a regular basis and I’ve always stated 1001% on any investment, thankfully this is never tracked and I’ve never been questioned on this… I am of course joking! The truth is that this is a difficult question to answer and we’d rather not state a random, high number.

Thankfully, Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realise by implementing Office 365 Project and Portfolio Management.

I’ve included some of the key highlights below, the figures speak for themselves!
