  • Summary


We all know the story. The latest technology is hyped and we are told will bring enormous amounts of value to your organization. The technology looks and sounds good, there are success stories…. and yet the reality is almost always much less than expected

  • It generally takes more time and effort than expected
  • The software somehow does not meet expectations
  • Value Realized is minimal or non-existent.

The GRL ProvIT Approach to IT Value Realization

Based on the revolutionary method developed by Dr Eli Goldratt, the discoverer of the ‘Theory of Constraints’ the approach creates the value case by answering 3 very simple questions.  Remarkably, simply answering these questions allows you to develop a business case that will show an ROI of at least x3 or x4 within a very short period of time – typically less than 1 year after the implementation.
