In this much-anticipated practitioner's booklet, Richard Wagner, a 20-year veteran of global HR consulting and professor of management at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, and Robert Weigand, director of management training and development at St. Luke's Hospital and Health Network, offer an easy-to-use instrument for ROI analysis: the Wagner-Weigand ROI Survey. Based on a model used at St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem, PA, Wagner and Weigand's work approaches the corporate holy grail of developing a methodology for determining ROI on HR initiatives using the MBTI® assessment.

- Examining how changes affect revenue and costs
- Identifying data to support revenue and cost estimates
- Linking behavioral changes to results being measured
The booklet includes an introduction to ROI and generalized discussion; exploration of the Wagner-Weigand model and theory; presentation of the ROI Survey and guidelines for its use; a sample case demonstrating actual application of the survey; and sample group exercises.
