The APM Benefits Management Specific Interest Group (SIG) has released their latest thought leadership report - Pushing the boundaries of change: benefits realisation across local government.
It discusses six action points with the purpose of challenging change leaders to reflect on their own context and consider the 'why' question, from leadership perspective.
Local government continues to face challenging times as beneficial change becomes ever more important to address the funding gap and still meet customer expectations. Across the sector, so many senior
managers would say they are already doing what is described in this report, though they would not necessarily use the term benefits realisation.
It is important to focus on critical business context and bring together, collaboratively, all of the professionals across the organisation working to ensure that change delivers its agreed commitments.
This report discusses the key issues.
Im also pleased that the APM is working closely with the project and programme management community across local government through the Delivery Improvement Network and other important initiatives. This builds on one of the key themes in this report; effective partnership and collaboration are critical to success.
