Summary

A quick-win project typically takes from 8-16 weeks to complete.  Most cost less than $250,000 in total expense.  An immediate value or benefit is realized from a successfully executed quick-win project.  Business benefits ideally result in new revenue or eliminated cost.  Sometimes a less tangible benefit may be the outcome – such as completing a pilot-test or preparing a team for a larger initiative.

Examples of quick win projects (increase revenue)
  • Marketing plan.  Re-allocate marketing dollars to where they yield business results.
  • Customer segmentation.  Identify highest value customers for additional revenue.
  • Product category assessment. Identify cross-selling opportunities for slow movers.
