Benefits Realisation

Where do we begin; when you buy something it’s for a reason, not because you are not invested. When you buy something you invest. Whether you realise it or not that decision serves an intent. It is normal to expect a return on every dollar you invest into a business opportunity. It is also normal that when you work at an organisation, with someone else’s money, that same sense of expectation diminishes.

Relax, it is not entirely your fault. See…we are humans, and it is part of our peculiar trait.

A benefits realisation framework is an end-to-end process during the lifecycle of an investment. It is a way to closely monitor how a program’s or project’s deliverables helps achieve strategic goals. Identified and understood correctly benefits are the cornerstone of a successful business case. This is the evidence of an effective proposal that represents value for money.

Benefits are the reason the investment is made.

A strategy outlines how an organisation plans to operate in order to survive and grow. Whether the goal is to reduce costs, increase revenues, launch new products or improve delivery. If those benefits are not aligned with strategic goals then how can the outcome achieve what you set out to do?. Investment decisions must be based upon realisation of benefits supporting the delivery of corporate objectives. Programs and projects which are not properly aligned with the right corporate strategies and objectives should not proceed
