Realising Benefits

Originally posted on the ProjExc Project Excellence Blog on 17-Apr-08
At recent meetings with prospective clients, and chatting with fellow delegates at Project Management events, a number of people have talked to me about how their projects and programmes not delivering the benefits the business expected (not meeting objectives).
No surprises for us, but interesting therefore that the Birmingham Chapter of the APM (Association for Project Management) is holding a briefing next week on Benefits Realisation and Benefits Mapping. Peter Hawkins will be exploring benefits realisation techniques, with an emphasis on how benefits mapping is a valuable tool for a range of project and portfolio activities. Subjects covered will include:
• Why is benefits realisation important?
• Benefits realisation tools and techniques
• Benefits mapping.
