There are no shortcuts from Projects to Benefits: article in PM World Journal

PM_World_JournalPhil Driver and I have just had an article published in PM World Journal.  The Advances in Project Management series includes articles by authors of programme and project management books published by Gower in the UK.  Our article is based on the PRUB-thinking concepts outlined in Phil’s book “Validating Strategies“, as applied to Project and Programme Management.

I’ve written extensively about some of the flaws in current approaches to Project Benefits Realisation and how OpenStrategies’ PRUB-thinking can really add value.

The article explains how there are no short-cuts from Projects to Benefits, or from Results to Benefits – every successful Project MUST link via Results through Uses to Benefits.

Professor Darren Dalcher says, in the same edition of PM World Journal, “The article written by Dr. Phil Driver and Ian Seath provokes readers to consider the wider context for projects within organisational strategy and action. The authors provide a rich model for projects that extends beyond deliverables as they remind us that projects deliver results, which are then used by customers and users to create the ultimate benefits.
