During his many years of working with project delivery organisations, Matt has observed that the outcome of numerous projects was not consistent with the capital investment value or the benefits expected by stakeholders. A common theme across these projects was a disconnect between the strategic objectives of executive management and the remit of the delivery team, who are focused on managing projects and delivering the scope of work.

This presentation will explore the emergence of Benefits-Focused Portfolio Management as a methodology which encompasses traditional management methods, but adds emphasis to the collaboration of all stakeholders in the pursuit of organisational goals. In particular, a structured approach for managing business endeavours to deliver change and benefits commensurate with investment value will be discussed.
