A practitioner's guide to benefits management
In the autumn 2017 issue of Project, Neil White and Rebecca Casey of APM's Benefits Management SIG have written a practitioner's guide to this area of project management. This article sets the scene for successful change outcomes enabled through the effective application of benefits management.
