About the Workshop

This session is ideal for people who already have some knowledge and expertise in project management and change, who have a change toolkit and want to add to it, and:

explore how driving benefits varies based on the change initiative and context;

understand and explore benefits management

gain confidence in using a number of benefits management tools;

• build a network and connect with like-minded individuals;

Benefits are the purpose behind change initiatives or projects, however we’ve all known ‘successful’ projects that have failed to realise envisaged business benefits.

People are at the core of most projects and change initiatives which creates a great deal of the complexity. This inherent complexity within organisational cultures often guide us to make decisions that can damage the achievement of benefits often without realising. Despite best intentions we often lose focus on benefits once projects start with the focus shifting to the delivery of milestones instead. This can lead to declaring victory too soon and efforts not extending to the benefit realisation work that is still required.

Yet we can greatly increase the likelihood of delivering benefits through engaging a broad range of stakeholders to define success early on, maintaining this focus throughout and shaping a benefits orientated culture.

In this session we outline a common benefits management process and a range of tools that can be used to support this. We will explore and share experiences, gaining a collective and individual practical understanding of benefits management tools so that you have the confidence to use them as soon as you leave the session.

The Session:

Open Space – We move away from a traditional top down lecture session to a more informal exchange of information and ideas to create an energising and freewheeling exchange

Driven by Participants – We know that the sum of the expertise of the people in the room will be great. The session is designed to draw on this collective expertise

Responsive, Engaging and Interactive – Effective learning comes from doing and collaborating with people in a safe environment. Our approach is to use a framework that helps participants to explore tools in a collaborative and respectful manner.
