Managing Benefits Certification

The achievement of benefits, such as increased revenue or efficiency, is the main reason behind all change, and yet organisations continue to struggle to achieve a return on their investments. This course brings the theory of Managing Benefits to life, helping you develop confidence in applying the framework, so that individuals and teams across your project community show real results from their projects and change programmes.

We offer this professionally recognised Managing Benefits Foundation and Practitioner qualification, accredited by APMG International, as an in-company course, providing training to meet your organisation’s specific needs, at a time and location convenient to you.

We also offer non-accredited short courses.

Managing Benefits in-company courses

Training to meet your specific needs

In-company training means we can reference your current processes, specific terminology and existing methodologies, throughout the course. This makes it easier for people to identify how best to apply the theory and concepts in the most effective and beneficial way. It also means your teams can work with ‘live’ examples during course activities to develop useful outputs, making the training even more relevant and effective.

In-company training:

  • Offers you the convenience of choosing when and where the training takes place
  • Minimises travel and accommodation overheads and can be more cost-effective
  • Allows your teams to work with their actual project examples, discuss their specific challenges and find solutions together
  • We get to know your ways of working and methods, before the course begins
  • Post-course support includes follow-ups to review progress
