Managing Benefits; why is it important?
Too often, projects focus exclusively on delivering outputs on time, within budget and to an acceptable quality. However, project outputs, such as IT systems, re-engineered processes or new buildings are not benefits in their own right, nor do they necessarily deliver benefits to the business. Indeed, projects may end up with results which are disadvantageous i.e. dis-benefits.
Against a backdrop of financial and resource pressures, the continuing drive towards effeciency and growing public expectation, it is increasingly important that investment in change is actively managed to produce measurable and beneficial outcomes. Benefits management provides the structures to help achieve this goal. It’s focus on actively assessing and managing the realisation of benefits allows for practical intervention throughout the change process, in effect, allowing for adjustments to be made along the way (including post project).
