Benefits Management Process Complements Other Project Management Methodologies
Abstract: The benefits management approach complements most of the common project management methodologies such as critical chain project management (CCPM), and PRINCE2. The majority of these methodologies focus on how to com-ply with three parameters: time, cost and quality instead of identifying the positive outcomes and benefits for an organization. In this paper, a different approach for the organization is presented, which focuses on positive outcomes named as benefits. Moreover, a comparison between Benefits Management and PRINCE2 methodologies is illustrated.
