Executive Coaching Session: Benefits Realisation
Organisations undertake projects to deliver specific benefits; however far too many fail to deliver real results. This session will demonstrate why, and then how to ensure that your projects deliver measurable results, in any industry. Benefits realisation addresses this is a very practical way.
Why executive engagement is needed: evidence of current practice
Benefits realisation is critical to ensure that projects deliver real results. Current maturity and practice in most organisations is well below what is needed.
We developed the first-ever training course on the topic and for over 15 years we have always used real business cases from the host organisation as its basis.
This gives us unique exposure to interpretation and practice of this element of any business case / project. It also shows why much of current practice is not fit-for-purpose and why so many projects fail to deliver real benefits.
Objectives of the session:
The session will demonstrate:
- how to improve the content of business cases and focus them entirely on real planned benefits
- how to ensure that benefits are maximised
- what to look for to ensure practice is fit for purpose
Coaching Agenda – 0.5 day
- The importance of benefits realisation and the implications of poor practice
- Portfolio management: how to ensure all projects are focused on strategy and will deliver results
- The one-page benefits-focused business case; of clear value to Executives
- Role of the Executive within this process – ownership across the organisation
- How to bring accountability and structure to benefits realisation
- Identifying the right measures and avoiding the wrong ones
The above can be tailored around your project portfolio and this can be used as the basis of the session.
Basis of the session: your strategy and projects
Just as we do on the course, we will use extracts of your strategy and real projects from your business as the basis of the session. This ensures the whole session is 100% practical and relevant.
Delivery options: Onsite and Online
We can deliver this session either onsite (UK or internationally) or online.
