In the context of projects, benefits management has recently been attracting the attention of practitioners and researchers alike. Project management practitioners are particularly interested in benefits management to demonstrate the connection between project management and projects benefits. For their part, most researchers aim to explain how to establish this connection, by proposing new conceptual frameworks. Yet, a crucial issue remains under discussed: how benefits management is practiced, in concrete situations, and which challenges practitioners face. Although many organizations are considering adopting formal processes of benefits management, benefits management seems fraught with difficulties when it comes to its deployment and its practice. These challenges have been the focal point of our study, which led us to meet with project management practitioners involved in benefits management in five large-scale organizations.

Although many practitioners believe that Agile started in software development, Agility started long before the publication of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development (aka Agile Manifesto) at the Enterprise level. Started as an alternative to planned frameworks, in particular as an alternative to the process standardization imposed by Lean Six Sigma, Agile is seen by the Project Management community as 'the future.’ However, none of the Agile frameworks was developed as a generic Project Management approach. Most, if not all, of them originated as software delivery framework with the 'developer' role as the core of an Agile Team.

La gestion des bénéfices dans le contexte des projets suscite un intérêt certain autant pour les chercheurs que pour les professionnels. Dans le milieu professionnel, on s’intéresse à la gestion des bénéfices pour faire la démonstration du lien entre la gestion de projet et les bénéfices des projets. De leur côté, les chercheurs tentent d’expliquer comment établir ce lien en proposant de nouveaux cadres de référence conceptuels. Mais au fond, le principal problème c’est que malgré les avancées indéniables, on ne comprend toujours pas comment se fait réellement la gestion des bénéfices dans les organisations et que malgré l’existence de processus bien définis, les organisations peinent à mettre en place ces processus et à atteindre les objectifs. Que se passet-il?

Agile is sometimes introduced as a cheaper way of delivering projects, products, and services. Unlike the traditional approach of measuring the value delivered based on the planned deliverables, the budget spent, and meeting the critical milestones, Agile doesn't and shouldn't track the delivery in the same way. Agile is a new approach, and traditional project finance management may not be relevant or can become an impediment to agility. Agile is or should be based on trust, and in an Agile organization, most of the financial planning and reporting should not be necessary. However, very few organizations have the necessary conditions to abolish tight financial management. This webinar will propose a few financial management approaches for Agile projects, highlighting the necessity as well as the challenges of each of the proposed models.

We are witnessing the rise of projects as the main unit of work, as well as the essential model to deliver change and create value for individuals, organizations, and society at large. Despite this surge in project activities and project spending, the risk of project failure continues to be huge and will continue to increase unless organizations and governments embrace advanced project leadership practices. Widely used management disciplines are often linked to a few simple frameworks that can be easily understood, and applied, not only by managers but also by the majority of individuals. Porter’s Five Forces is a great example. In contrast, project management methods have tended to be too complex to be easily understood and applied by non-experts. Under these circumstances, it is not surprising that we saw the rise of agile, triggered by the Agile Manifesto, in February 2001 by 17 independent-minded software practitioners. Considering that this year is the 50th Anniversary of the creation of the Project Management Institute, it is time that we co-create The Project Manifesto.
