Topic: What is your BC Program worth to your company?
Topic Description: You have decided to trade in your old BC Program for a shiny new one. What is your current program worth? Will anyone notice the scratches?
How can we put a value on a program? There isn’t a blue book for program value. Accounting people would look at your program and say it was the salary plus benefits for the employees depreciated over the lifespan. Is that how your executives view your program: another non-revenue cost center? Are you having trouble justifying a budget increase? Are you hiding from the budget axe every year? Can you justify your program’s value in terms of return on investment (ROI)?
You have to find ways to let your executives know that you provide tangible value that adds to the company’s bottom line. You have to sell yourself and your program. We will discuss ways that you are either already plugged in or how to get plugged in with the other teams in your company
