One of the most difficult, yet important, questions regarding projects is "What advantages will this project create for the investors and key stakeholders?" Projects and programs should be treated as investments. This means that the focus of projects shifts from delivering within the triple constraints (time–cost–quality) towards some of the more fundamental questions: • What is the purpose of this investment? • What are the specific advantages expected? • Are these benefits worth the investment? This presentation will provide an overview of a model for executives and practitioners within the portfolio, program, and project environment. It will guide them through the important work that must be addressed as the investment progresses towards the realization of benefits. The model will cover processes addressing the strategic elements of benefits realization which will bring the program delivery teams and the operational users together with a new perspective. Covering an area of program and project management that is rapidly becoming more widely valued, this presentation blends theory with practical experience to present a clear process flow to managing the benefits life cycle.

For decades, leaders and managers have been trained to think and act on upon the assumption that employees and customers are rational beings. Motivational, organisational and structural approaches have been developed on the premise that people know what is good for them and that they behave accordingly. Therefore rewards, bonuses, job promotions as well as punishments have been designed to make sure people understand and achieve goals. However, there is strong scientific evidence that this approach is not just irrelevant but dangerous because it does not accept humans as they are: emotional, irrational and primarily focused on their survival. Management styles need to change and modern leaders have to reconsider their approach. This webinar provides both the evidence for the need to change and directions on how this should happen.
