The APMG Managing Benefits™ Interactive Mind Map

The Managing Benefits™ study guide mind map outlines key concepts for effective benefits management. It includes sections on benefits management principles, practices, and lifecycle. The map covers identifying, planning, delivering, and reviewing benefits. It emphasizes the importance of aligning benefits with strategic objectives, stakeholder engagement, and establishing measurement frameworks. The guide also highlights risk management, benefit sustainment, and the role of governance in ensuring continuous improvement and value realization from projects and programs.

The APMG Managing Benefits™ Syllabus

The document was created with training companies in mind, so-called Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs). It provides information on the scope of Managing Benefits™ exams, thereby allowing for the design of training and training materials following the requirements of APMG so that the training and materials fully prepare candidates for Foundation and Practitioner exams.

Why should I read the APMG Managing Benefits™ Syllabus?

So what value does this provide for you? By reading the teaching syllabus, you will learn about the scope of Managing Benefits™ exam questions for Managing Benefits™ Foundation and Managing Benefits™ Practitioner exams, and thus, which topics (and to what extent) from the official Managing Benefits™ Handbook are covered in the exams, and which are not. For example, not everyone knows that the Foundation exam does NOT cover the entire textbook.

The OGC Gateway™ Process

Step 0 of OGC Gateway™ Process - Review 0: Strategic Assessment

This Workbook supports OGC Gateway Review 0: Strategic Assessment. This is a programme-only Review that sets the programme in the wider policy or corporate context. This Review investigates the direction and planned outcomes of the programme, together with the progress of its constituent projects. It can be applied to any type of programme, including policy and organisational change. The Review is repeated throughout the life of the programme from start-up to closure; an early OGC Gateway Review 0 is particularly valuable as it helps to confirm that the way forward is achievable before plans have been finalised.

Step 1 of OGC Gateway™ Process - Review 1: Business Justification

This Workbook supports OGC Gateway Review 1: Business Justification. This is the first project Review, which investigates the Strategic Business Case and proposes a way forward to confirm that the project is achievable and likely to deliver what is required. The Review checks that: stakeholders approve of the intended benefits of the project, linkage with the programme and organisational objectives is clear, the optimum balance of cost, benefits and risk has been identified.

Step 2 of OGC Gateway™ Process - Review 2: Delivery Strategy

This Workbook supports OGC Gateway Review 2: Delivery Strategy. This Review investigates the assumptions in the Outline Business Case and the proposed approach for delivering the project. If there is a procurement, the delivery strategy will include details of the sourcing options, proposed procurement route and supporting information. The Review will also check that implementation plans are in place.

Step 3 of OGC Gateway™ Process - Review 3: Investment Decision

This Workbook supports OGC Gateway Review 3: Investment Decision. This Review investigates the Full Business Case and the governance arrangements for the investment decision to confirm that the project is still required, affordable and achievable. The Review also checks that implementation plans are robust.

Step 4 of OGC Gateway™ Process - Review 4: Readiness for Service

This Workbook supports OGC Gateway Review 4: Readiness for Service. This Review investigates the organisation’s readiness to make the transition from the specification/solution to implementation; where appropriate it will assess the capabilities of delivery partners and service providers. The Review also confirms that ownership of the project is identified after handover to operational services.

Step 5 of OGC Gateway™ Process - Review 5: Operations Review and Benefits Realisation

This Workbook supports OGC Gateway Review 5: Operations Review and Benefits Realisation. This Review confirms that the benefits set out in the Business Case are being achieved and that the operational service (or facility) is running smoothly. The Review is repeated throughout the life of the service, with the first Review typically 6-12 months after handover to the new owner and a final Review shortly before the end of a service contract. The Review can also be used on a one-off basis, to check that a project has delivered its intended outputs.

Quality is a habit (Aristotle)

A habit backed by 20 years as a trainer and 15 years as an Enterprise Agile Transformation Leader

"Some exam simulators, those lacking explanations to questions and answers, one could say that they test our intellect in an intriguing way 😎, interpreting the principle: "No Feedback, No Learning". Learning is based largely on feedback. Here is the irony, some simulators, both free and paid, do not provide any feedback whatsoever.”

Paulo CoelhoWhen he was preparing for the Managing Benefits™ exam

After over 20 years in IT and personally clearing more than 200 certifications in IT, InfoSec, management, coaching, mentoring, and training, 15 of which have been in Agile Transformations, Agile Leadership and Governance, and more than 10 years as an Accredited MoP®, MSP®, PRINCE2®, PRINCE2 Agile®, M_o_R®, OBASHI®, P3O®, ITIL® trainer, it’s time to give something back to the community. Just as many great people helped me along the way, I want to contribute to the community, because the truth is that none of it matters if you don’t share and help others.

Don't be fooled by Managing Benefits™ exam dumps

I hope you will find my exam simulator valuable on your journey. The simulator is not just a tool to help you pass your upcoming Managing Benefits™ Foundation exam, but also to learn and understand the knowledge areas associated with the specific domain you are studying. Passing an exam shouldn’t be the ultimate goal in itself but rather a checkpoint in your never-ending self-development journey. The goal of the Managing Benefits™ Exam Simulator is to provide you with as much learning feedback as possible, so you won’t waste your time memorizing questionable Managing Benefits™ exam dumps or shady Managing Benefits™ question databases with no prior verification of correct answers and with no rationals to questions.

Agnostic Agile logo

I Belive in Agnostic Agile

Being "agile agnostic" refers to an approach to Agile methodologies and processes that is not tied to a specific framework or set of practices (yet being fluent in most if not all of them). Instead, it emphasises Agile's core principles and values as outlined in the Agile Manifesto, applying them in a flexible and culture-sensitive.
