Return On Investment (ROI) analysis is not just a single component. Instead, it is a collection of methods, skills, tools, activities, and ideas. They can be combined and used in many different ways to assess the relative value of an investment over time. Applying this collection in a particular situation requires making many choices among the ideas and methods available and conducting an analysis appropriate to the decision at hand.
