Topic Teasers Vol. 43: Benefits Management Is Hard!

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: How much more can they heap on a project manager? Now I’m being asked to handle the benefits management for this project. There was nothing about this in my PMP prep course, or on the exam. Is the latest trend that anything no one wants to do becomes the responsibility of the PM? How do I proceed when I don’t even understand what this is?
A. Benefits management is now often asked of the project manager, but you should position yourself as the process facilitator, not the “responsible party”. Otherwise, they’ll blame you if the project benefits aren’t realized.
B. Benefits management has to do with salary, union contracts, insurance, 401K plans, sexual harassment concerns and training classes. It is rightly positioned in the human resources department, not in a project environment.
C. Since the outcome of your project is the sole indicator of whether or not the business objective will produce revenue, tracking benefits realization logically fits into the responsibility of the project manager.
D. Tracking benefits management is a time inhibitor in a project plan. For that reason, if your project is to finish as estimated, benefits management should be outsourced to a third-party organization.

Change Management: The Paradigm Shift

by Craig Curran-Morton

The key contributor to project success will be the willingness of you and your organization to move the focus from the traditional three-legged stool to one that encompass both benefits realization and change management. This is a significant paradigm shift, but can pay huge dividends.
