Managing Benefits™ Foundation
3 day course
Benefits are not simply just one aspect of project and programme management (PPM) - rather, they are the rationale for the investment of taxpayers’ and shareholders’ funds in change initiatives.
This accredited course is based on the 2012 guidance and qualification scheme from APMG-International.
The guidance has been carefully designed to complement existing Best Practice in portfolio, programme and project management (e.g. PRINCE2®, MSP®, P3O® & MoP™). It consolidates existing guidance on benefits management into one place, while expanding on the specific practices and techniques aimed at optimizing benefits realization.
WHAT WILL THE COURSE INCLUDE?
• An overview of benefits management - what it is, and the case for doing it • Descriptions of the seven principles upon which successful approaches to benefits management are built • Guidance on how to apply benefits management at a portfolio level, as well as at a project or programme level • Details of the five practices in the Benefits Management Cycle and examples of how they can be/have been applied • Advice on how to get started in implementing effective benefits management practices and sustain progress. •
WHY SHOULD I TAKE THE COURSE?
If you have a role in ensuring optimal use of taxpayer and/or shareholder funds by maximizing the benefits realized from change initiatives, then this is for you.
HOW WILL I BENEFIT (AND MY ORGANISATION TOO)?
If you are concerned with realizing benefits by:
• Increased revenue;
• Efficiency savings;
• Delivering a tangible contribution to a strategic objective or business priority;
• Meeting a legal or regulatory requirement or to maintain business as usual, then this course is for you
The course also includes the Foundation exam which will measure whether a candidate understands benefits management principles, practices, techniques, roles, responsibilities and documents.
