- Organizations around the world are struggling in determining and delivering changes to their products and services to not only stay relevant, but to also deliver and realize the business benefits they are expecting. Hi, I'm Haydn Thomas, and welcome to Business Benefits Realization. With organizations needing to stay relevant, competitive, and keeping up with the evolving consumer and end user demands, organizations are looking for better and more efficient ways in delivering their expected outcomes and benefits.
For organizations to realize the benefits they are seeking, a structured and replicable approach are needed for business change identification, prioritization, selection, and delivery.

We will look at the business benefits plans that documents the details of how the benefits will be delivered, measured, and achieved. And finally I'll cover how to make the whole process work together, including some common pitfalls to avoid.

Join me as we share the journey, approaches, and techniques that'll assist you and your organization in delivering business benefits realization.
