Managing Benefits Certification

Managing Benefits should be the driving force behind your organization’s project, program and portfolio management. Measurable improvements – benefits – should be the rationale for change.

Yet most organizations cannot demonstrate the benefits they have realized from their portfolio, programs or projects. Public and private sector organizations have good methods and standards to deliver change. Billions of dollars are spent on change initiatives –but little is available to measure what change was achieved. In many case the problem is more serious – we decide on a product first and find the befits later. It’s the wrong way round.

A Guinness advertisement one said that “88,2% of Statistics are made up on the spot.” In business, this is less funny – research evidence in Managing Benefits points to the fact that benefits and business cases are being deliberately mis-stated to get change initiatives signed off. Strategic misrepresentation is common.

Managing Benefits takes on this problem – using best practice this standard will show you how to manage benefits realistically for shareholders or taxpayers to deliver competitive advantage or public value. Managing Benefits aligns strategy and benefits so that the latter can be forecast, measured and brought to reality. It will help you create a framework to measure benefits in a consistent way.
