In any organization, projects are done for a reason. It might be a sound, well thought out justification or a project could even be undertaken on a mere whim, but there are always perceived benefits behind every one. However, only some projects realize these benefits while other fail miserably, but how will you know? How do you determine that your project achieved the expected benefits? While many organizations are becoming better at defining the expected benefits, they assume the benefits are met and fail to follow-up on confirming the realization has actually occurred. Join us for the month's Project HEADWAY webinar when we examine benefits realization from a portfolio perspective. What are the key steps a portfolio needs to take and what are some of the pitfalls it needs to avoid? Join us for this month's webinar and explore the benefits.
