These presentations by agile author and expert Mike Cohn explore return on investment (ROI) as well as traditional discounted cash flow methods such as net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR). Learn newer approaches, too, such as economic value added (EVA) and real options valuation, which are especially applicable for teams using agile processes or an incremental development process. The math is easy; the concepts are powerful. Leave with practical knowledge about how to apply these straightforward techniques to prioritizing and selecting projects.
