With Genius® Pro, the User can objectively and easily identify, assess, and quantify the economic benefits, costs, and risks of their company’s projects and initiatives.
Genius Pro is designed for Users trained asEVC Business Case and Template Builders, using Glomark-Governan’s Enterprise Value Creation (EVC™) Methodology. Genius Pro allows the User to create as many EVC Business Cases as necessary for their company’s projects and initiatives. To create an EVC Business Case, the User has to assess the Total Benefit of Opportunity™ (TBO™), the Total Cost of Opportunity (TCO) and the Total Risk of Opportunity™ (TRO™) for the project.Prior to making these assessments, the User defines the client need, the scope of the project, and the strategic alignment. The TBO Matrix is then used for easy “Benefit Identification.” Within this matrix, the User can make an objective assessment to define and quantify each benefit. Additionally, these tailored EVC Business Cases, also known as EVC Templates, can be printed in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, while assumptions and results can be easily exported to Microsoft's Excel. There are essentially three categories of Genius Pro Users: Business cases practitioners, Business case templates’ builders, and ROI/TCO experts.
Business Case Practitioners:These are business or technology professionals that need to develop business cases for either internal justifications, or for generating business cases to assist customers in justifying an investment in their solution.
Template Builders:These are individuals that have been trained in the EVC Methodology to build EVC Templates.The EVC Templates can be later used by a Business Case Practitioner to build project-specific business cases for internal justifications, or by sales professionals to demonstrate the ROI and value of their solutions and services to their Clients. ROI / TCO Experts: These are internal business case or TCO/ROI experts that need to rapidly build business cases also using the EVC Methodology.
