Every project and investment needs justification, usually this is done by economic efficiency assessments (like the WiBe framework or a business case). Assessments identify future costs and future benefits as outcome of an ICT project.
Future benefits don’t come easy (if at all), that’s where benefits realisation management comes into focus: It is the definition, planning, structuring and actual realisation of the benefits of an ICT improvement project or a business change project.
Thus it’s a very good idea to accompany an economic efficiency assessment like WiBe with a specific benefits realisation planning. If you are interested to exchange ideas: why not join the managing benefits community on Linkedin?
