Value and Benefits: a white paper from the Value Management SIG
Posted by APM on 9th Oct 2013
The Value Management SIG is pleased to announce the release of its latest white paper: Value and Benefits. It is the first of a series of white papers relating the concept of value and the techniques of value management to other areas of project management. This paper concentrates on the links between value and benefits and proposes that the reason we do projects is to create value for the organisation and/ or its stakeholders. The creation of deliverables and the realisation of benefits are just steps along the way.
This paper represents the thoughts of the Value Management SIG and not necessarily the view of APM. It is intended to stimulate discussion on this subject and feedback on the contents of the paper should be sent to the VM SIG.
The white paper can be downloaded here.

How most projects are at the same time both wildly successful and spectacularly disappointing, and everything in between, depending on the point of view of different stakeholders.
Agile has a lot to offer the wider enterprise, and we could perhaps see a time when the whole of an organisation is run on agile principles. Since this will not be about projects or programmes, I believe the emphasis will be on behaviours and structures as opposed to processes and tools.
