CI Leader Publishes Guide to Achieving and Maximizing ROI

Phase 5 Group's New E-Book Helps Companies Balance Continuous Improvement Initiatives With Bottom-Line Goals

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - December 12, 2014) - Phase 5 Group, an industry leader in the field of continuous improvement (CI) management, today announced it is releasing a new guide to help companies achieve and maximize return on investment (ROI) from their CI initiatives. The e-book, How to Ensure ROI from Your Continuous Improvement Approach, is available for free download at

The purpose of continuous improvement is to improve the efficiency and management of the organization; this in turn should translate into operational and financial returns. Yet to be truly sustainable, CI must be about more than the bottom line. Phase 5's new guide offers valuable advice on viewing the ROI of continuous improvement in the context of a larger, company-wide transformation. Furthermore, the e-book explores three keys for getting ROI from a CI investment:

  1. Stage-gate your investment.
  2. Calculate the entitlement.
  3. Track the value capture.

"CI can't be solely about driving financial returns, but at the same time, it's not a social experiment or an academic exercise-if it doesn't generate ROI, business leadership will lose energy for it," says Roger Price, CEO of Phase 5 Group. "The pendulum must be balanced between ROI and the organizational benefits CI offers. Our new e-book guides companies toward finding that balance so they can revolutionize how they operate while improving their bottom lines."
