Smart managers understand that knowing ROI is a key to success in many situations. ROI is a factor in making strategy and other major decisions, buying and selling complex products and services, and participating in projects both as a project manager and as a key stakeholder or contributor.

Risk, Reward, and Payback

The simplest measure of ROI is the payback period, or the length of time it takes for the cumulative return to equal the cumulative investment cost. Ordinarily, investment spending must occur before the investment starts producing benefits. The longer an investment's payback period, the riskier and less attractive the investment is. Similarly, the larger the initial investment, the riskier and less attractive it is; and not surprisingly, larger investments usually take longer to payback. These days, organizations want very short payback periods—they want their return yesterday.
