Our servicesEvidencing the Benefits of Change

Change is inevitable, yet many businesses do not know how to demonstrate the impact of a change.

Have increased revenues, efficiencies or operational capacity been achieved? 

Has “more effective working” and “improved customer satisfaction” been demonstrated? 

What exactly is the impact of the change towards the strategic priorities? 

This course offers a transferable and practical method developed at the University of Strathclyde for benefits realisation management through a change lifecycle.

Who is this course for?

This course would benefit:

  • Organisations seeking to embed a culture of benefits realisation management
  • Individuals looking to evidence the benefits of change within their teams, or across their change programmes
  • Middle to senior managers, and their teams, responsible for any change or improvement initiative, and are required to report on the impact of the implemented changes
  • Those who contribute to mandatory institutional Value for Money, or efficiency reports

  • Increase your understanding on the importance of demonstrating the impact of change
  • Provide you with the skills and knowledge to identify benefits for your projects and initiatives
