Andreas Gabler, from Xelocity, takes us through project prioritisation using benefits management thinking

You are a project manager / project pponsor of a vital network upgrade project. Your finance partner is chasing you for the financial benefits of your project as the funds you need compete against new cloud-based customer interaction application. It is just logical that you need the new network, as without that you cannot connect to the new cloud-based hosting partner, so you rack your brain and try to find the direct financial benefits of the project, but you cannot come up with a real figure.

What can you do?

Make up a number that looks good and justify it with a lot of supporting figures no one can prove?

Does that sound too familiar? Trying to make decisions purely on financial number?

Benefits management techniques in portfolio management provides a more holistic approach to project prioritisation and portfolio management than pure factor based prioritisation.
