Simplifying benefits

MSP Sound Bites – Benefits categorisation simplified

A recent discussion with one of our major clients, who sets best practice for their organisation  resulted in the question, “How should we recommend our  programmes categorise their  benefits?”

Benefits Management is continually evolving and the main point of reference for many people is the MSP manual . This was a simple enough question in itself but the Managing Successful Programmes manual provides us with a number of options. There are plenty of other good references around that have developed the ideas further,  the HM Treasury Green Book and  Steve Jenner’s  book ‘Realising Benefits from Government ICT investment – a fool’s errand?’ to name but two.

There are many good ideas in the Managing Successful Programmes “Benefits Realisation Management” chapter that get lost in the noise and detail of the careful and literal interpretation taught to delegates preparing for the APM Group examinations.  This chapter was written in a way that required practitioners to interpret and apply the concepts rather than use them literally.

We put this paper together to help, we hope it proves useful to you too
