How can you get the crankiest CFO to accept that your latest training program offers an excellent ROI? Hint: It's not just about the numbers.
This is 100% about "organizational and leadership buy-in." Several members have said they get asked to create a training program, but it seems they're expected to do it either for $0 or a 1,000% guaranteed ROI. So let's workshop how to design a financial analysis or make an investment pitch!
