Realising Benefits: How to plan for success
By taking an integrated systems approach, organisations can make robust investment decisions based on an increased certainty that benefits are achievable and realistic.
Government departments in the UK are currently facing significant challenges to ensure that departmental initiatives are prioritised to deliver public services effectively under increasing resource constraints.
Robust benefits management is a recognised technique for identifying and realising the value of lasting changes but, as demonstrated by past failures to achieve desired impacts, there are many hurdles to overcome before success can be demonstrated.
This paper describes how a systems based approach has provided a foundation for robust investment decisions at the portfolio level, and a clear focus for delivering lasting and effective change.
