Research output: Book/ReportBook


Delivering sustainable reform within an ever changing external environment, usually reliant on a range of stakeholders stakeholders, requires a different way of thinking, a better understanding of the drivers of benefits realisation and more effective methods and tools than have been generally available in the public sector so far. The BeReal approach helps bridge the gap between the aspiration of benefits realisation in the public sector and the current reality, by simplifying best practice and providing a framework for the active planning and tracking that is needed. We have developed a well‐researched methodology and toolkit to elicit, value, measure and realise stakeholder as well as corporate benefits. We also emphasise the need to address cultural, capacity and capability issues through collaboration and innovation. We strongly believe that this approach to benefit realisation is at the heart of securing integrated change as well as being able to evidence the value for money of individual projects. This Consultative Guide describes and sets out how to adopt this approach, which we have called BeReal.
