Managing Benefits™ – 2 Accreditation Levels (APMG International)

The reason organisations invest in change is to realise benefits. Despite this, reports from professional bodies, audit agencies and academic research show that organisations in the public, private sectors still struggle to demonstrate return on investments.

The significance of this is even greater in a volatile economic climate where the failure to optimise benefits realisation may put future initiatives at risk as investors lose confidence in the organisation’s ability to successfully manage change. APMG’s Managing Benefits guidance and qualification scheme aims to help address this problem, building on existing best practices in portfolio, programme and project management.

It provides managers and practitioners from multiple disciplines, working in a variety of organisations, with generally applicable guidance encompassing benefits management principles, practices and techniques.
