The success of major programs can depend on the success of Benefits Management

For many large organizations, the level of rigor demanded in approving business cases for major programs is often not matched by the subsequent effort put into managing benefits over the life cycle of the program.

Benefits management should be much more than simply checking numbers – it should focus on maximizing benefits rather than just monitoring them. However, in too many instances, it becomes a peripheral activity whose importance is not understood by the major stakeholders.
