Benefit Map - The What, Why and How of this very valuable benefits realisation management tool
On Monday 18 December the Benefits Management SIG gave a webinar on introducing benefits mapping, presented by Judge Matharu. In the context of benefits management someone recently commented that a benefit map was the most valuable tool they had come across, but is often misunderstood and/or misused.
For Judge it is the most valuable tool in the benefits management toolkit which can provide a huge amount of value - if done correctly.
In this webinar, he covered the essentials of a benefit map:
- What is it? Addressing the key principles of a benefit map and what it looks like?
- Why do you need it? Considering the key insights and value you can get from a benefit map (and there are loads!)
- How do you create it? There are different approaches to developing a map depending on your context and he looked at each of these.
At the end of the content the audience came away with the knowledge, and hopefully an urge, to go and create their first benefit map!
Judge Matharu is an experienced benefit realisation practitioner with over 10 years of real world insight. During this time, his frustration at the lack of accessible information and tools to implement benefits management led to his book Practical Benefit Realisation Management published in 2015.
In addition to being an active practitioner, he presents and provides training with a focus on real world 'how to' especially from the perspective of an individual 'change initiative' (project, programme or whatever you might call it).
