Question: PMI’s Pulse of the Profession® 2017 makes benefits realization a factor to measure project success. Mention one impediment you face in measuring intended project benefits.
In the current VUCA world, the main objective of a project is to deliver value for the stakeholders. However, often the project manager is solely focused on delivering the fixed scope within a fixed budget and timeline. The focus is more on the outputs rather than the outcomes of the project and the tangible benefits that is produced. So although the project has outlined the benefits at the inception, there needs to be a change in the mindset of the project manager. He/she must focus on project outcomes and ensure that during project execution such benefits are realized.
