Benefits Management: The End of Pet Projects \ Leeds – 22nd January

PMO Flashmob is back and we’re in Leeds on Wednesday 22nd January.

Many thanks to Direct Line for supporting PMO Flashmob for this session which will take place:

The Wharf, Neville Street, Leeds LS1 4AZ

It’s just near the train station so perfect for people travelling that way plus parking nearby.

About the Session

We’re delighted to have Claire Dellar with us for the evening to help us get into and unravel that area that seems to fox a lot of us – benefits management.

Here’s more about the session:

Many people do not fully understand benefits, see them as a side-activity unconnected to the main activities of project, programme or change management – or just do not consider them at all.

Benefits management is not an activity, it is a mind-set. Described as ‘the golden thread’ from business case to business as usual, benefits are the reason we invest in doing things differently.

In this interactive session, PMO Flashmobbers will learn what benefits are, how they are identified and begin to develop an understanding of the part we all play in realising them. Attendees will learn, through practical exercises, how to use tools such as the Dellar Success Case to start shifting your mindset to a benefits one.

Sound good?

How to Join Us

It takes place on Wednesday 22nd January at Direct Line’s offices at the Wharf.

We kick off 6pm for 6.30pm and finish around 8pm.

There’s drinks and nibbles to keep you going.

Tickets cost £10
