Description

Making The Case: like beauty, benefits are in the eye of the beholder. This course is suitable for chairs, trustees, chief executives and senior managers.

This one-day course looks in detail at an aspect of organisational management that often doesn’t get the attention it deserves – the idea and practicalities of benefits realisation. Conventional project-based management training rightly tends to focus on following the overall process and the balancing of inputs and outputs to deliver the objective.

But, whilst well-crafted objectives concentrate the manager’s attention, they are downstream to the questions of “why?” and “so what?”.

To answer these questions, you need to take a more strategic, future-focussed view and think about what you are trying to achieve and what needs, or is going, to change for you to be successful.

And, as in the adage “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, benefits realisation depends on the beneficiary – as part of your stakeholder management, it will be vital to identify who is the beneficiary, what they expect and how you are going to deliver their benefit. This will involve an understanding of influence, of how to overcome barriers and how perspectives can change over time.

As a result of attending this training, participants should:

  • Recognise and identify a benefit;
  • Better plan their delivery;
  • Be able to determine whether benefits have been delivered;
  • Have increased confidence in making the case.
