Programmes & Projects are undertaken to deliver benefits to the organisation. Getting to grips with good Benefits Realisation Management (BRM) practice will help align project outcomes with business strategies - and has been proven to increase the likelihood of delivering the corporate strategic objectives.
Many organisations rightly concentrate on planning, budgeting and control so as to deliver the programme / project on time and within budget. But, what happens after the project team have packed up and moved on to the next endeavour? How has the programme / project delivered? Have the benefits been realised?
This new, full day briefing concentrates on delivery of benefits through the programme or project lifecycle, from initial identification to full or partial post-project realisation.This one-day event will suit senior personnel whose role involves the management of strategic change and development.
It will be of help to those who seek to know which programmes have been successful, and why - and also to those who need to ensure that scarce resources are spent wisely.
