Cost, Risk, & ROI Analysis

• What is the true cost?
• What are the major cost drivers?
• What is the trade-off between cost and risk?
• How can I lower costs?
• What is the risk vs. cost benefit for a new project or product?
• What is the expected return on investment (ROI)?
• How do the risks of a project impact costs and ROI?
