The first edition of Gerald Bradley's Benefit Realisation Management quickly established itself as the definitive, practical guide to using measures to track performance throughout the life of a project or programme; enabling organisations to eliminate wasted investment, realise more benefits and realise them earlier. The second edition takes you step-by-step through the benefits realisation process, explaining along the way, how to: * define your projects and programmes by mapping the benefits * produce a convincing and accurate business case * communicate the benefits and get all your stakeholders on board * agree the measures you will use to encourage the desired behaviours, to monitor progress and to assess the ultimate success of the project or programme * use the benefits realisation approach to understand and address the human aspects of the project, including resistance to change, training needs and new ways of working * integrate this approach into your organisation's culture and systems The second edition includes expanded guidance on benefits realisation for portfolio management and includes revisions to the original text along with additional case study examples. The text of the latest edition is now printed in four-colour which make the detailed and varied benefit maps throughout the text immediately more striking and comprehensible. The benefits realisation management methodology fits closely with existing programme and project management approaches such as MSP and Prince 2, making it appropriate for both public and private sector environments. If you are investing heavily in change management, IT infrastructure or project working, then this book is a must-read that will justify its price many times over.

Benefits realization management (BRM) is a key part of governance, because it supports the strategic creation of value and provides the correct level of prioritization and executive support to the correct initiatives. Because of its relevance to the governance process, BRM has a strong influence over project success and is a link between strategic planning and strategy execution. This book guides portfolio, program, and project managers through the process of benefits realization management so they can maximize business value. It discusses why and how programs and projects are expected to enable value creation, and it explains the role of BRM in value creation. The book provides a flexible framework for: Translating business strategy drivers into expected benefits and explains the subsequent composition of a program and project portfolio that can realize expected benefits Planning the benefits realization expected from programs and projects and then making it happen Keeping programs and projects on track Reviewing and evaluating the benefits achieved or expected against the original baselines and the current expectations. To help project, program, and portfolio managers on their BRM journey, as well as to support business managers in executing business strategies, the book identifies key organizational responsibilities and roles involved in BRM practices, and it provides a simple reference that can be mapped against any organizational structure. A detailed and comprehensive case study illustrates each phase of the BRM framework as it links business strategy to project work, benefits, and business value. Each chapter ends with a series questions that provide a BRM self-assessment. The book concludes with a set of templates and detailed instructions to ensure successful deployment of BRM.

This guide provides clear and unambiguous guidance to value management. It is the first cross-sector and universally-applicable guidance on how to maximise value in a way that takes account of an organisation's priorities, differing stakeholder needs and, at the same time, the use of resources as efficiently and effectively as possible. It is the basis for a qualification scheme, initially an APM Group Foundation level examination. It meets the requirements of all the markets it addresses (namely the PPM market with information for Senior Management), identifies the attributes, processes, techniques and benefits of value management and encourages the delivery of Value for Money; is applicable generally across all project environments and compatible with OGC's core portfolio, programme, project and risk management (P3RM) guidance

HMRC's programme to increase online filing of tax returns has made significant progress. HMRC was set an ambitious timetable to expand the use of online filing and now more than 11.5 million customers a year are submitting one or more tax returns online, generating significant savings. Take-up rates have increased significantly, particularly after mandatory online filing requirements have come into force. Nevertheless, take-up rates on some taxes (VAT, Corporation Tax and Self-Assessment) have been below original forecasts and HMRC has lowered its forecasts in the light of take-up achieved so far. Customers generally recognise the efficiencies and practical benefits that online filing offers although HMRC has yet to measure whether the anticipated benefits and costs to customers are being achieved in practice. Some users have concerns about the costs and usability of filing VAT and Corporation Tax returns online, and about delays in getting login details to access the Self-Assessment online service during peak periods. Levels of satisfaction with the assistance offered through various helpdesks also vary. Online filing is delivering significant savings to HMRC, an estimated £126 million so far. HMRC cannot demonstrate whether it is maximising benefits as it does not yet fully understand the relative costs of dealing with paper and online returns or the costs and benefits of seeking greater take-up.

This book emphasizes the follies of major ICT programmes. It highlights how better management of benefits realisation is key to getting ICT investment back on track. ISBN 978-1-906638-26-9 "Jenner provides very credible guidance and methods on ICT project value realization in the public sector. This book is timely, practical and a very good primer on contemporary "best practice" thinking in both the public and for-profit sectors. The big question is: will public sector managers and executives have the "will" to put the book's prescriptions and methods into everyday practice with ICT Projects? The value of taxpayer services and contributions depends on their response." Donald Marchand, Professor of Strategy Execution and Information Management, IMD.

Value management evaluates alternative construction materials and systems with a view to saving money without impacting on building performance or the construction programme. It has become a well established tool in the construction industry, having been endorsed in a range of government sponsored reports. In the current economic climate, clients are increasingly looking to employ value management as a way of ensuring they generate maximum value from their investments.+ Since publication of the first edition in 2004, value management has developed significantly. The second edition retains the structure of the first edition, covering methods and practices, frameworks of value and the future of value management, but has been thoroughly updated with new material and several new chapters to ensure it reflects current theory and practice. In particular, the new edition responds to: Recent publications, most notably the imminent update of British Standard BS EN 12973:2000 Value Management; the change to "Value for Europe" governing training and certification in EU countries; and the recent publication of the UK government OGC, Management of Value (MoV) initiative Research in value management undertaken since publication of the first edition Changes in value management practice particularly in programmes and projects. Developments in the theory of value, principally value for money measures, whole life value option appraisal, and benefits realisation New asset management initiatives covering the management of physical infrastructure, for example BSi PAS55 2008 “Asset management: Specification for the optimized management of physical assets” Appendices again include a tool box and additional generic case studies to illustrate value practice.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a global phenomenon which is gaining significant momentum across the world. Currently there is little information on how to realise and monitor benefits from implementing BIM across the life-cycle of a built environment asset. This book provides a practical and strategic framework to realise value from implementing BIM by adapting Benefit Realisation Management theory. It presents an approach for practitioners aiming to implement BIM across the life-cycle of built environment assets, including both buildings and infrastructure. Additionally, the book features: wide-ranging information about BIM, the challenges of monitoring progress towards benefit goals and the greater context of implementation; a set of dictionaries that illustrate: how benefits can be achieved, what the benefit flows are and the enabling tools and processes that contribute to achieving and maximising them; a suite of measures that can serve to monitor progress with examples of how they have been used to measure benefits from BIM; real-world examples from across the world and life-cycle phases that show how these benefits can be achieved; and information on international maturity and competency measures to complement the value realisation framework. Including a blend of academic and industry input, this book has been developed in close collaborative consultation with industry, government and international research organisations and could be used for industry courses on BIM benefits and implementation for asset management or by universities that teach BIM-related courses.
