Thank you for the comments. For those of you who may be a bit confused, let me clarify, Scott posted his comment here, but is referring to an article I published in Infonomics Magazine (not here in my blog. You can access the article at:

OK - that said, Scott, yes, I agree, and that was the point I was trying to make in the article. Thank you for the further clarification. There is often a lack of basic finance in many approaches taken to justify ECM investments. The issues you cite are not mine, but those I have witnessed in many organizations. I like the way you draw a distinction between accounting and finance. Do you have examples of wheer such analysis was done?
