MANAGING BENEFITS Foundation – Public or In-house

There is one overriding factor behind the decision to produce the guide. Benefits are not simply just one aspect of project and programme management (PPM) - rather, they are the rationale for the investment of taxpayers’ and shareholders’ funds in change initiatives.

This three day Foundation course will provide guidance to managers and practitioners from multiple disciplines, working in a variety of organisations, with generally applicable guidance encompassing benefits management principles, practices and techniques. It will also prepare you for sitting the Managing Benefits Foundation Exam (40 minutes multi-choice format) at the end of the course. Exercises are used throughout this course to reinforce learning. Exercise sessions account for approximately 20% of the course.


Duration: 3 days

What recent delegates have said

"I liked that the training focussed more on the high level exec details rather than detailed document/artefact delivery" 

"I could see the links back to my previous course in MoP and the investment logic and priority setting" 

"I like the exec level benefits mapping to business strategy and what this means" - delegate said that is what will allow him to sell MB to his executive 
"I really appreciated the honest discussion about the need for and approach to really engaging stakeholders - we aren't good at that" 

"I liked that the course was delivered with little in the way of set "sanitised" group exercises and focussed upon real examples from participants." 

"I liked the "continuous chat" and that the trainer was experienced enough that interjections and insights were welcomed as part of action learning approach"
