HERO Project Effort-Value Evaluation

Before starting or supporting a HERO project, you need to determine if its value is in line with the effort required. Our HERO Project Effort-Value Evaluation tool can help. We ask you a series of questions, and the results will help you make an informed decision whether or not to proceed.

The first set of questions, the effort questions, show where you'll encounter resistance, not just in gathering resources and budget, but in parts of the company that may need to be brought in, like IT, PR, or Legal. The second set, the value questions, help to identify the exact benefits you're seeking.

Based on these two scores, you can evaluate your project in context and determine whether its value exceeds the effort. Email the results to yourself, so you can share them with colleagues. Feel free to copy the tool and distribute it, so others can evaluate their HERO projects.
