ROI- Return On Investment


Whats the good news?
The subject of this entry may be of more importance and interest to some than to others, so since I like to have a bit of quality content to suit everyones needs, or at least as close to everyone as possible, I will leave it on the table.

For whatever reason, the subject was on my mind for the start of today and it is just past 9 am on Sunday , 02 August 2009 leading into the first week of the month. I wont get into the techicalities of it, with all of the mathematical algorhythms, because I question whether or not all of that is really necessary.

I am still learning along the way, so perhaps we together can simply focus on the most effective and ethical ways to achieve this goal. Here is what I found on a Google saerch on the subject

DEFINITION – For a given use of money in an enterprise, the ROI (return on investment) is how much profit or cost saving is realized. An ROI calculation is sometimes used along with other approaches to develop a business case for a given proposal. The overall ROI for an enterprise is sometimes used as a way to grade how well a company is managed.

If an enterprise has immediate objectives of getting market revenue share, building infrastructure, positioning itself for sale, or other objectives, a return on investment might be measured in terms of meeting one or more of these objectives rather than in immediate profit or cost saving.

Even this description seems a bit technical and corporate culture sounding to my ears and eyes, so I am in search of a way to explain and understand this concept in way that a young child could comprehend it. There has got to be an EASIER way, so I am on a search for a description that is more suitable. The notes do have the phrase
“IN GOD WE TRUST” printed on each, so I imagine that the statement is placed there for a sound reason.

A different perspective to consider.
