Benefits Management Checklist
Checklist to be used to evaluate programme benefits are managed well!
Mark all that apply.
In the programme brief have linkages been made explicitly between organization strategy and project outcomes along with their associated benefits?
Does each benefit have a primary person assigned to it? Has this person shown adequate commitment to his/her assigned benefit?
Have dis-benefits been anticipated, documented and have strategies been implemented to reduce them?
Have the dependencies between specific benefits and other items such as project outputs been documented?
Can you demonstrate that required benefits are driving other management activities, such other projects and the programme plan?
Have the management rules for realizing benefits captured in the benefits management strategy?
Have benefits been analysed and mapped so there are clear links between enablers, intermediate benefits and end benefits?
Does every intermediate and end benefit have a benefit profile?
Do you have a benefits realization plan that outlines what work is needed to formulate, translate, and realize (FTR) the required benefits?
Have you planned the 6 Ws (Who, What, When, Where, Why, and hoW) for structured benefits reviews to help judge whether the programme is successful?
