Benefits Modelling and Analysis for Business Analysts.: Learning Outcomes | ALC Training News

  • No comments

The objectives of this workshop are to ensure that participants are able to:

  • Identify and quantify as many benefits as possible
  • Clarify the relationships between different types of initiatives and outcomes, for example distinguishing between enablers, business changes, performance improvements, effectiveness and business benefits.
  • Ensure that there is a clear understanding of the causal and contribution links between the different types of outcomes, and how these contribute to achieving the investment objective and the organisation’s purpose and strategic objectives; this enable the application of one of the key principles of effective benefits management (“begin with the end in mind”)
  • Generate an understanding of the relationship between the intended benefits of an investment and the quality required to realise them (benefits drive requirements, not vice versa)
  • Ensure that all changes and initiatives required to realise and sustain benefit are identified and considered, thus contributing to a complete and realistic benefits realisation plan
  • Ensure that risks, assumptions and dependencies are identified and understood, thus enabling to address them and optimise the return from investment
  • Ensure that all relevant stakeholders, including benefit owners and contributors, are identified, understood and engaged, thus increasing the level of buy-in and commitment by critical stakeholders
  • Current measures of organisational performance are identified and understood, thus reducing the investment required to measure and monitor benefits realisation
