The second edition of Benefits Management has been updated with current examples, further insights from experience and recent research. It shows how the enduring challenges achieving business value from information systems and technology projects can be addressed successfully. The approach, which is synthesized from best practices, sound theories and proven techniques from a range of management disciplines, is exemplified from the authors' extensive experience of working with a wide range of organizations. The book includes examples from a wide variety of projects including non-IT projects. The book is written in an accessible style, ideal for practicing managers, and includes check lists and templates for using the processes, tools and techniques and real-life case studies of their application and impacts.
The book now also includes:
- International survey results that reinforce the importance of the topic, the key management issues and evidence of how the more successful organizations' practices are closely aligned with those described in the book.
- A Benefits Management Maturity diagnostic which enables organizations to understand the reasons for their current investment success levels and then how to increase them.
- Discussion of the role and contribution Project Management Offices (PMOs): how they can improve the delivery of value IT projects.
- Further practical advice and guidance on Program and Portfolio Management, including findings from the authors' recent research in several large organizations.

Public țintăThe main market for Benefits Management will remain the UK: academics, masters students (and even some undergraduate options), as well asIS/IT managers and practitioners; and consultants. It is aimed in the new edition to provide additional summaries and tools for the professional market, where there is demand for the latest techniques in this area. The audience is both practitioners (including IS/IT managers, project and programme managers and consultants) and academics in the fields of Programme and Project Management and IS/IT.
Whilst originally the ideas of Benefits Management (BM) developed in the IS/IT area to improve value delivered, it has now extended to projects and programmes in general as witnessed by the OGC publications in the area and the formation of a Benefits Management Special Interest Group within the Association for Project Managers (APM).
Originally BM was very much a UK view. However it has now extended world wide evidenced by adoption of our book in standards in Australia and Singapore and publication of papers on BM in leading US journals.
