On the 26th of October 2010 the APM Benefits Management SIG held an event in association with the Australian Institute of Project Management that looked at various aspects of benefits realisation. The event was held simultaneously in London and Sydney with 2 live speakers in each location video linked to the other. The photograph (above) shows (l-r) Matthew Walker (SIG Committee), Merv Wyeth (SIG Committee), Nick Wensley (SIG Secretary) and Peter Glynne (SIG Chairman) after the event.
Jed Simms in Sydney started the presentations asking What is a benefit? which explained the Value Equation and how this could be used.
Matthew Walker then followed with his presentation on Benefits in the built environment which expanded on his thought leadership brochure of the same name.
Geoff Rinaldi then asked Who really cares about benefits management? and suggested some ways in which benefits management could be improved.
Nick Wensley then finished the presentations with a look at his personal journey through benefits management.
The success of the event has led to discussions on further collaboration between the Benefits Management SIG and the AIPM, including other joint events.
