Benefits management lifecycle
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. Aimed at the project and programme level, it describes many activities and capabilities that can be used in support of portfolio management goals.
Supporting the article is a diagram that provides a framework that organisations can adopt to optimise the realisation of business value from their investment in change.
