The presentation was perfectly pitched balanced in such a way that it gave something new/food for thought to the practitioners, and gave interesting information to those in the audience who havent been directly involved in benefits management so far. This was evident from the questions and the discussion it prompted some really practical questions, such as how do you convince the business that its a good idea to invest into benefits measurement? Just one of the comments made after Sarah Harriess Benefits Management what are your chances of success? recent presentation to London Branch delegates.
Traditionally benefits management has been associated with project and programme management however it is increasingly being recognised as a business skill in its own right. This joint event with the APM Benefits Management Specific Interest Group (SIG) discussed the importance of the behavioural aspects of benefits driven change and why it has moved beyond a process or toolkit based approach. This has been driven by important lessons learned including the recent drive for cost reduction across the public and private sectors. Sarahs presentation can be seen below.
