Techniques & Steps to Help Business’s Frame Vision, Cascade Objectives, Respond to Escalations & Realise Benefit Flows

Dec 6, 2018 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Increasingly descriptions of the PM role and PMO responsibilities emphasis projects are investments and participants must support all things benefits. For example the 6th Edition of the PMBoK-Guide®’s description of the project manager discusses “…[and] may also be involved in follow-on activities related to realizing business benefits (pg51)” Whether or not the PM is ’involved,’ the PMBoK-Guide does not provide any Tools or Techniques by which: we can facilitate business leaders to crystallise “what we will see and experience when benefits are flowing in a desired future.” If, as diligent experts we are to support benefits then the responsibilities of the PM must include interacting with the business at each the end of the project life cycle. To do this, we need competencies – knowledge & behaviours we practice to develop skills.
