Book Description :

The first edition of Gerald Bradley's Benefit Realisation Management quickly established itself as the definitive, practical guide to using measures to track performance throughout the life of a project or programme; enabling organisations to eliminate wasted investment, realise more benefits and realise them earlier. The second edition takes you step-by-step through the benefits realisation process, explaining along the way, how to: ∗ define your projects and programmes by mapping the benefits ∗ produce a convincing and accurate business case ∗ communicate the benefits and get all your stakeholders on board ∗ agree the measures you will use to encourage the desired behaviours, to monitor progress and to assess the ultimate success of the project or programme ∗ use the benefits realisation approach to understand and address the human aspects of the project, including resistance to change, training needs and new ways of working ∗ integrate this approach into your organisation's culture and systems The second edition includes expanded guidance on benefits realisation for portfolio management and includes revisions to the original text along with additional case study examples. The text of the latest edition is now printed in four-colour which make the detailed and varied benefit maps throughout the text immediately more striking and comprehensible. The benefits realisation management methodology fits closely with existing programme and project management approaches such as MSP and Prince 2, making it appropriate for both public and private sector environments. If you are investing heavily in change management, IT infrastructure or project working, then this book is a must-read that will justify its price many times over.

Book Description :

One of the most difficult, yet important, questions regarding projects is "What advantages will this project create for the investors and key stakeholders?" Projects and programs should be treated as investments. This means that the focus of projects shifts from delivering within the triple constraints (time–cost–quality) towards some of the more fundamental questions: What is the purpose of this investment? What are the specific advantages expected? Are these benefits worth the investment? Implementing Project and Program Benefit Management is written for executives and practitioners within the portfolio, program, and project environment. It guides them through the important work that must be addressed as the investment progresses towards the realization of benefits. The processes discussed cover the strategic elements of benefits realization as well as the more detailed requirements, which are the domain of the program delivery teams and the operational users. Using real cases to explain complex situations, operational teams and wider groups of stakeholders, including communities affected by infrastructure projects, will be able to engage in the conversation with the sponsors and delivery teams. Covering an area of program and project management that is rapidly becoming more widely valued, this book blends theory with practical experience to present a clear process flow to managing the benefits life cycle. Best practices are defined, and pitfalls and traps are identified to enable practitioners to apply rigor and structure to this crucial discipline.

Project Benefit Management Setting Effective Target Benefits

Book Description :

Abstract: Target benefits such as "reduced operational costs" are project goals that can contribute to the long-term improvement of organizational performance following project completion. Setting effective target benefits is critical because it supports project investment decisions, clear project management direction, and thereby enhanced project and organizational performance. Based on goal setting theory, we present three studies to develop and validate a scale to measure effective target benefits. The proposed scale is comprised of three dimensions - specificity (e.g., specific target values), attainability (e.g., the capacity to realize the target benefits), and comprehensiveness (e.g., reflect the views of key stakeholders). This scale can be used by senior managers to assess proposed projects' target benefits, contributing to more informed project investment decision-making and the subsequent benefit management process. Theoretically, it can also be used as an instrument to facilitate theory development in the fields of project benefit management, strategy implementation, and organizational performance. Highlights: Setting target benefits is the first and critical step of project benefit management. Target benefits are strategic project goals that will enhance organizational performance if successfully realized. Setting effective target benefits supports post-project success. Effective target benefits should be specific, attainable, and comprehensive.

Book Description :

Information technology (IT) projects are implemented in organizations to provide benefits. This paper reports the research findings into the process of benefits management by project managers in IT projects in Perth, Western Australia. It was found that IT project managers have a strong propensity towards efficiency benefits rather than effectiveness benefits. A significant majority of IT project managers do not assign Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to project benefits, which makes it difficult to assess if benefits have been delivered. Project managers tend to focus on managing deliverables rather than the benefits that should result from utilization of the deliverables. Many of the findings indicate that there is significant room for improvement in the formal effective application of project benefits management.

Book Description :

This book is a complete project management toolkit for project leaders in business, research and industry. Projects are approved and financed to generate benefits. Project Management: A Benefit Realisation Approach proposes a complete framework that supports this objective – from project selection and definition, through execution, and beyond implementation of deliverables until benefits are secured. The book is the first to explain the creation of organisational value by suggesting a complete, internally-consistent and theoretically rigorous benefit-focused project management methodology, supported with an analytical technique: benefit engineering. Benefit engineering offers a practical approach to the design and maintenance of an organisation’s project portfolio. Building upon the authors’ earlier successful book, Project Management for the Creation of Organisational Value, this comprehensively revised and expanded new book contains the addition of new chapters on project realisation. The book offers a rigorous explanation of how benefits emerge from a project. This approach is developed and strengthened — resulting in a completely client-oriented view of a project. Senior executives, practitioners, students and academics will find in this book a comprehensive guide to the conduct of projects, which includes robust models, a set of consistent principles, an integrated glossary, enabling tools, illustrative examples and case studies.

Book Description :

Many organizations have unsuccessfully tried to implement an off-the-shelf, or ready-made, project management methodology and found that it was unsuitable for their particular projects, their organization, and their level of organizational project management maturity. This often results in a lot of money, time and effort spent with little return. While the original intent was an increase in successful projects, the actual outcome was the opposite--often accompanied with a decrease in staff morale. Before committing to any initiative to introduce a project management methodology, it is important to answer the question, "Why have a methodology at all?" Furthermore, if an organization chooses to have a defined methodology, why have a tailored methodology and not use an off-the-shelf methodology? Answering these questions will reveal the link to more successful projects; and delivering projects more successfully is the goal of any professional project management practitioner.

Book Description :

Projects and programmes should achieve a return on the investment made by the owner or sponsor. This return is now thought of as the benefits that accrue from the investment: some financial, others perhaps harder to define, but nonetheless just as important in justifying the investment. Making sure that they are realised, and that unanticipated benefits are maximised, is as important as the initial justification, and without that many projects have earned a bad name for project management. This publication provides comprehensive guidance on how to manage delivery of the benefits used to justify investment in change. It provides guidance for all involved in successful change delivery from senior responsible owners and directors through to portfolio, programme and project managers. The guidance is the source material for an accredited qualification from APMG-International

Book Description :

Numerous project professionals have debated the advantages of using PMI's Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3) to assess an organization's project management maturity. This paper examines four case studies--involving organizations from Australia, New Zealand, and the United States (US)--in using OPM3 to determine an organization's project management maturity. In doing so, it discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using project management maturity models and overviews the purpose and the process of applying the OPM3 model, noting its key elements and relationships. It then analyzes the case studies, showing how the profiled organizations--Australia's Centrelink, a New Zealand public sector organization, a US state government's information technology (IT) division, US-based Washington Savannah River Company--used OPM3 to assess their project management maturity. It details the findings, identifying each company's organizational context, assessment type and scope, assessment triggers, and project management maturity.
