  • Vili Mileva Yankova: Benefits realisation through project management

    WordCamp Europe 2020Speaker: Vili Mileva Yankova

    June 19, 2020 — About 90% of start-ups fail. What if better project and benefits management could lower that number? Vili’s presentation will discuss how benefits realisation through good project management can increase success.
    Each project starts with a business case and a benefits management plan – i.e. the reason why a project is undertaken, or a product is being built. However, many projects may last up to a few years and they may end up providing a product or service that no longer delivers the sought-after benefits, thus wasting time and resource. Benefits realisation management is the key to successful business-driven projects and products.
