Benefits and Value Management – why we do stuff

University of Manchester, Renold Building, Altrincham Street, Manchester, Lancashire, M1 7JA

Benefits feature prominently in business cases and gateway reviews, but do they happen in reality? And why does anyone care?

Benefits and Value are the reasons we do projects and programmes, why we do change and make investment.  All too often, project managers focus on reaching the next milestone within tolerance.  The specification drifts and the original objectives get missed.

To improve the success rate, most investment and change are now managed in portfolios and programmes.  Benefits management is the definition, and progressive realisation of objectives, and applying it correctly will improve success rates, improve profitability, and of course the project manager’s reputation and career trajectory. It's a “life skill for all”.

Hugo Minney, PhD, ChPP, FAPM, has worked in project management in many different settings, but has probably never once had the job title ‘Project Manager.’ 

For the last seven years, Hugo pursued project management as a chief executive in NHS. He recently wrote an APM book “Guide to benefits management frameworks” and is currently integrating benefits management into Britain’s largest civil nuclear establishment, Sellafield in Cumbria

Hugo is a Fellow, and Chartered Project Professional of the Association for Project Management, the Chair of the Benefits and Value Specific Interest Group (SIG), and a committee member of  the British Standards Institute (bsi) Project, Programme and Portfolio standards committee, chairing the benefits management standard sub-committee.
