Return on Investment

Discussion groupThe measurement of “return on investment” usually refers to financial reward that follows financial investment.

However, it can be used to measure the success of a project or programme according to any number of indicators that you are seeking.

It is particularly useful for planning for impact before or at the start of a project or programme (for example, a pilot learning programme). 


How to plan to measure return on investment:

  • Identifying stages of the programme
  • Identifying outcomes and indicators
  • Identifying evidence sources
