Course Description

On completion of this course, the student will be able to:  

  • Define the basic concepts – benefits, business objectives, program management, strategic objectives
  • Identify benefits, based on the business objectives
  • Analyse benefits by establishing appropriate critical success factors and key performance indicators
  • Deliver benefits in a timely fashion, ensuring that the work is going according to plan
  • Transition benefits to a sustaining organization
  • Sustain benefits, or at least understand how they will be sustained by another organization

This course is aimed at project managers who want to see the bigger picture. Having a clear appreciation of the business goal of your project and the benefits its sponsors are expecting will allow the project manager pitch progress reports in a manner more clearly understood by senior management

Project managers often regard their work as taking a set of requirements and producing a tangible set of deliverables that satisfies these requirements. However, the people sponsoring the project often have an entirely different perspective of the project. They have commissioned it to fulfil a business need and to produce both tangible and intangible benefits. The basic concepts:

  • Deliverables, outcomes, benefits, objectives, program management
  • Benefits identification
  • The Benefits Breakdown Structure
  • Benefits analysis and planning
  • Benefits Delivery
  • Benefits Transition
  • Benefits Sustainment
