 7. Scope, Purpose, Objectives, and Deliverables (to be refined by committee members)

     Scope: Minnesota workforce development training and employment programs.

     Purpose: To pool our shared knowledge and expertise to create through consensus a
     standard return on investment methodology for workforce training and employment programs
     that meets the objectives below by June 2010.

        1. ROI Committee members agree on what success looks like for the ROI Initiative and
            are committed to the success of the initiative and the objectives.
        2. Clarity on how and who will make decisions on project issues.
        3. Collect and share information on ROI methods.
        4. Develop a standard ROI methodology for workforce development and training
            programs that best satisfies the following criteria:
                a. Manageable (easy to apply/administer; minimizes work and training for service
                   providers to implement)
                b. Useful (relevant and timely; helps providers improve programs, helps
                   legislators and others understand program impacts)
                c. Understandable (transparent; easily understood by experts, users, and the
                   general public – assumptions and limitations defined, rules of use defined)
                d. Credible (trusted; measure is seen as accurate/credible by experts, users, and
                   the general public – relies on verified data as much as practical, process
Adopted: August 13, 2009, Last Updated: 9/14/09                                             1

                   integrity - ensures data and model integrity of applications),
               e. Adaptable (measure can be used by different programs/providers)
               f. Sensitive to change (collect and report data at a frequency that detects
                   significant variations)
        5. Develop an action plan for each phase of the project:
                Phase I: Evaluate existing ROI models and develop a standard model
                Phases II - pilot test, evaluate, and refine the ROI measure
                Phase III: Make policy and implementation recommendations as part of the
                  January 2011 GWDC Report to the Legislature. Include in the report:
                         i. Recommendations for communicating ROI results, including language
                            on the appropriate uses and limitations of ROI measures
                        ii. Recommendations for implementing a ROI workforce development and
                            training methodology statewide.
                       iii. Identify training and other implementation costs.
        6. Team members feel that their perspectives were understood, that their involvement in
           the project was a valuable use of their time, and that the process to achieve the
           objectives was conducted efficiently and effectively.

      Deliverable(s): 1) ROI methodology/template (assumptions, standard process, unique
 application components/discussion), 2) Introductory page that provides background/context on
 methodology (e.g., what the ROI methodology is, who the intended audience is for the measure,
 value of the measure, how to apply the methodology)
 8. Timeline (milestones and dates)

 Phase I
  Timeframe          Activity
  Jun-Aug 2009       Launch ROI Initiative, form committee, prepare project plan and action plan
  Aug-Mar 2009       Review and evaluate ROI models
  Jan–Apr 2010       Create standard ROI methodology
  May-Jun 2010        Share recommended ROI methodology/approach with others
                      Gather feedback on methodology
                      Adjust methodology
                      Begin to plan Phases II & III
  June 25, 2010      Adopt standard ROI methodology

 9. Vision (what success will look like – what good results are we striving for?)
 Our vision of success is pooling our shared knowledge and expertise to create through
 consensus a return on investment methodology that is:
  Useful (helps providers improve programs, helps legislators and others understand program
  Transparent (easily understood by experts, users, and the general public – assumptions and
    limitations defined, rules of use defined),
  Trusted (measure is seen as credible by experts, users, and the general public – relies on
    ―real‖ data as much as practical, process integrity - ensures data and model integrity of
  Adaptable to different programs/providers, and
  Easy to apply/administer (minimizes work and training for service providers to implement).

                                        Initiative Overview
        Benefits:  Value to legislators; taxpayers
                      Enrich the policy conversation—clarify meaning/content
                      Information for philanthropic uses/help raise funds
                      Leverage additional resources
                      ROI as a way to compare value of programs
                      Explore different models and values and how to frame key points
                      Help us in the other work we do
 Dangers/Threats:  May motivate some to report false data - manipulate data
                      Go out and get feedback
                      Promoting conversations that still miss each other
                      Some programs won’t want to reveal their assumptions/won’t buy in
                      Political alienation to plan ahead
