By Alan Ferguson

Part of MSP For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Create your top level benefits model for your successful programme. It is an important time for establishing your benefits focus, so put enough effort into this workshop. Key: Put enough effort in until you get a model of people are comfortable with.

Situation at the end: Does the business buy into the model and can you identify owners for each benefit?

  • Get together a workshop with lots of stakeholders.

  • Have a facilitator, who knows what they’re doing, teach them a little bit about benefits.

  • Brainstorm the benefits.

  • Refined the model until it works.

  • Look out for potential benefit owners.
