This was a presentation given by Merv Wyeth of the APM Benefits Management (and APM Programme Management) SIG and Neil White of the APM Enabling Change and Benefits Management SIGs.

The presentation was to the APM South Wales and West of England branch membership in Bristol on Tuesday 17th June 2014.

The purpose of this event was to demonstrate how the symbiotic nature of benefits management and change management ensures that an organisation’s change initiatives are successful, and deliver real, lasting value.

This event aimed to show how the meaningful engagement of stakeholders at the appropriate stage of the change life-cycle greatly improves the effectiveness and efficiency of the change process.

By leveraging both the change and benefits management disciplines the timely transition to improved business operations and realisation of the expected benefits is assured.

The programme lifecycle, and its inter-related phases, was used to provide a framework that enabled delegates to participate in an inter-active discussion, all in order to improve delegates' knowledge and understanding of these two important disciplines.
