Data Analysis

Abstract When presenting proposed quality improvement initiatives to senior management, it is important to speak their language by including important financial metrics that will hold their attention. A quality professional must be able to build a business case that describes the issue, its solution, key risks, and estimated benefits and costs to secure approval and funding. The basic financial metrics of costs, savings, return-on- investment (ROI), pay-back period, and break-even analysis can be used in any business scenario and will enhance decision making.
