Managing Benefits

Managing Benefits aligned to Portfolio Management – a model from Yellowhouse

Seeking some guidance on how to apply benefits management at a portfolio level, as well as at an individual project or programme level?
Managing Benefits at Portfolio level
I’m a big fan of the new “Managing Benefits” guide by Steve Jenner and the alignment to the UK “Management of Portfolios” guide. We are now teaching and consulting with both models and the opportunities to align benefits with strategic planning is very clear.
The mindmap lists the core elements and we integrate these into training and consulting to get best results.
