Most people see the business case process as a form of medieval torture administered by accountants. They also, with some justification, question the quality and value of the business case once created.
Benefits survey 2017 - now open for responses
Posted by Maya Creasey on 27th Apr 2017
The Benefits Management SIG would like to obtain information from members of the SIG on the extent to which benefits management is being adopted in your organisations and the difference it is making. To do this, we are asking you to complete a very short survey (only 12 questions, most of which require a 'tick box' answer).
The survey is about benefits management in the context of project, programme and portfolio (P3) management in organisations. We use the APM Body of Knowledge (6th edition) definition of benefits management as 'the identification, definition, planning, tracking and realisation of business benefits', where a benefit is 'a positive and measurable impact of change'.
Similar surveys, undertaken in 2014 and 2015, have helped us prioritise the work in which the Benefits SIG engages. These previous surveys had a relatively low response rate. We hope that this time more SIG members will participate and we can continue to build up a time series of data on the questions posed. The results of the 2017 survey will be summarised and posted on the SIG website in due course.
The survey is anonymous, unless you wish to provide us with your contact details to enable the BM SIG Committee to answer any questions you might have.
Please do take part in the 2017 Benefits Management Survey.
Completed questionnaires must be submitted by 9 June 2017 as they will be analysed and presented at the Benefits Summit 2017 on 22 June, for which there are still spaces, and later published on the SIG APM microsite so please do refer regularly for updates.
