KSF of Effective Benefits Management (6)






Managed across the full business change

The Benefits Management Model

consists of:


Benefits should be the driver behind all change initiatives

Each benefits should be measured at least with one measure, preferably suite of measures (in order to create “rich picture” from multiple perspectives):

Benefits contribute towards organizational/strategic objectives (benefits are identifiable and quantifiable in terms that link to the drivers of the organizational/strategic objectives)

Benefits are measurable and observable

Benefits are tangible (easy to measure) or intangible (not so easy to measure)

Benefits are identifiable and quantifiable

Benefits should have baselines

Benefits should have priorities

Benefits are an advantage to stakeholders (internal en external to the organization)

Benefits are derived from change initiatives (formally constituted projects and programmes)

Benefits can be automatic (same service for lower costs) or (mostly) manual (deliberate management action)

Benefits types:

Mostly chain of intermediate benefits is linked to the end benefits, but in many cases intermediate benefits don’t automatically lead to the end benefits

Benefits Management

Benefits management should be coordinated with, and wherever possible integrated into, the wider organization’s context

Benefits management seeks to optimize rather than maximize benefits realization

Benefits management is a process that runs across the full business change lifecycle

Do not treat benefits management as a separate discipline
