ROI Institute becomes a Strategic Partner to the North Alabama Chapter - 2016




Phillips ROI Methodology

The ROI Methodology is a scalable and systematic approach to program evaluation. Using a process model, five-level framework, and operating standards to capture performance metrics from simple satisfaction scores to financial impact, the methodology enables you to collect appropriate data to report performance of a variety of initiatives and program types. The ROI Methodology generates both qualitative and quantitative data and provides techniques to isolate the effects of the program from other influences – resulting in credible metrics and ROI reports accepted by financial executives and stakeholders.


With over 5,000 organizations using this process, the ROI Methodology is the most used and implemented evaluation system in the world. The ROI Methodology not only provides the capability to evaluate program performance, but also improves the design of programs for optimal impact. A focused, proven and practical approach – the process is grounded in conservative standards and a cost effective approach to evaluation.

STEEDS - Dr. Joe Stuart Becomes a Strategic Partner 2014, 2015, 2016


STEEDS is the Stuart Training, Education, and Employee Development Site.  I'm a senior talent development leader.  I've worked developing the skills of those around me, above and especially those below me for over 25 years.  I believe in the value of preparation to succeed in life.  Luck favors the prepared.  Maybe that's a holdover from my days as a Boy Scout, but I've always tried to be prepared for whatever adventure life offered me.   I've captured a few of the things I've written over the last couple of years related to talent development in general in this web site.

I'm a big believer in Talent Development.  But talent development doesn't just happen.  Everyone needs guidance to develop talent.  I believe in successive approximations; that is, gradually providing guidance through telling, training, transfer of responsibility and finally fully trusting the worker to successfully complete the assigned task.  I believe talent development is task specific.  That is, a person can complete a given task very successfully, but fail completely at an unrelated task.  It's our job as leaders, trainers, educators and managers to ensure a full spectrum of employee success by developing our people in all of their tasks.  As we develop them in each task their overall ability and thus their value to the organization will grow accordingly. My Employee Ownership Development (EOD) Model is designed to focus on developing task specific skills which then aid the employee in successful task completion which then leads to a spiral development of increasing skills and employee responsibility and task ownership.  Employees who take responsibility for their tasks will consistently do a better job
