More than ever before, criminal justice organizations are leveraging information technology (IT) to help them address their various challenges and meet the needs of their diverse stakeholders. Utilizing cutting-edge case management systems, for example, help agencies of all sizes:
• Increase flexibility and operational efficiency
• Reduce business process complexity
• Manage costs better
Unfortunately, in the current economic climate, organizations looking to meet stakeholder demands of increased performance have decreased resources with which to do it. Additionally, taxpayers and legislators have become more sensitive about how public funds are being spent, and new spending proposals are carefully scrutinized. This series of white papers will help you obtain the funding you need by improving your ability to demonstrate a significant return on investment (ROI) for your purchases.
White Paper Overviews
Government spending projects are receiving more scrutiny than ever before, making purchasing needed services more challenging. In this environment, demonstrating that your IT project has merit can be difficult. This white paper outlines ways to demonstrate Return on Investment (ROI) to your stakeholders.
A critical step in any government project is getting buy-in from key stakeholders. Each stakeholder has different needs and concerns that need to be addressed individually. This white paper gives you ideas and suggestions on how to address the specific concerns of each stakeholder in order to make your project a reality.
Before you can convince your stakeholders to approve your project, you need to find ways to illustrate value to your stakeholders through both hard (monetary) and soft benefits. This white paper discusses the importance of hard benefits, and provides equations for determining both the return and overall value of the system.
Creating an ROI analysis is not enough to convince your stakeholders of the importance of your project. Because every stakeholder has different goals and objectives, you need to package your message a little differently to show how your project will meet their goals. This white paper discusses why you should present your case differently to different stakeholders, explains five key steps to follow for your presentations, suggests different media you can use, and gives several presentation tips.
The need to demonstrate your Return on Investment (ROI) to your stakeholders does not end after you receive funding and implement your case management system. By demonstrating ROI to your stakeholders after implementation, you are able to illustrate to your stakeholders that their investment was a good one. Additionally, further ROI analysis gives you tools to maximize the value of your case management system. This white paper discusses the need to illustrate ROI to your stakeholders after implementation. It also suggests ways that you can use your case management system to create more monetary ROI benefits.
