CtO: Foundations of Change the Org for Benefits - BEYOND Agile, PRINCE2 + PMBoK-Guide Project Manage
The Whole Investment Journey From Pre-Project, through Project to Benefits - From Run the Organisation (RtO) to RtO via Change the OrgEnroll in Course
This is a short course that provides you with the foundations for later courses on 'How-To deliver benefits realisation and or successfully run projects and programs by making wise choices to mix and extend agile-iterative and incremental and or design-first approaches'
Here I cover "It is All about 'Change the Organisation for benefits' - the broader context that positions project management"
I'm sharing 40 years experience with you using some simplified descriptions of the journey from
- 'Idea Moment' to the
commitment of a Qualification decision,
- This is pre-project
- To Sanction decisions (Per
sprint, release, stage or phase),
- Typically the repetitive need to carry-out sprint or release or project or program planning
- To Acceptance (per Project
- The execution of the body of the program or project or phase or stage or sprints that form releases of output to the organisation
- To Benefit Start,
- The hardest part; changing habits to be new ways of working
- To Project Closure and
Recognition of Benefits in steady flow
- A continuation of the hard part; bringing new habits to be a steady, strong flow of benefits for a return on investment
I've been involved in projects for 30 years and have taken many roles in project, programs and 'pmos'.

We would never want you to be unhappy so we offer plenty of "try-before-you-buy" free access materials.
An important part of passing exam credential courses, particularly eLearning ones is that you make the personal commitment. We ask you to only buy when you've made your decision. Then know we and you are both fully focused on your success from then on.
We do not offer money back options because when you sign-up with "well I can always change my mind" as your justification there is a weakening to the resolve that is necessary for success - That is not in your best interest if you are to swiftly progress and pass exams.
Other provider's "Money back" guarantees are a way of appearing to reducing 'purchasing risk' by seemingg to to transfer the impact from you to them BUT...
They are common because they use the psychology of regret that recognises you can't get your time back AND asking for a refund implies telling your self "I made a bad choice".
Both reinforce a "I would not have chosen if i knew then what i know now BUT I'll keep going because now it will be a hassle to start again." The likely outcome is your involvement drags on you, progress is slow and may halt entirely.
So please enjoy the free-access materials and confirm we are a good fit and then make your commitment.
Ultimately if you've a genuine reason that is not simply trying to game-the-system then talk to us - we are people too, and we try to be reasonable.
P.S. maybe you'd like to do our risk management masterclass companion to our Fast-Track risk course. (Both are included in our £5 bundle subscription.) I'm confident no-one else's project risk management has the content ours does. Others pretend risk is impact times probability of a single event single outcome chain. Niave in the extreme but common in text books.
