The Benefits Landscape
We headed to Direct Line the insurance firm in Leeds UK for an evening of Benefits Management. It was a stonker of a night and you can head over for the full session here or take a look at how the scene was set.
Here’s a taster of what’s to come, the scene-setting for the night where PMO Flashmobbers were not only listening to a great session but also getting involved in a really practical session that you can use with anyone in the organisation.
So what are benefits? Here’s Claire kicking off with the benefits landscape:

We also had a brilliant ice-breaker that went down well too.
It was called Vitamin C – because ultimately the success of projects and change comes down to these four.
We were asked to pair up and to share an insight where one of these four C’s had figured in your work in the last month.
For example; competence might mean learning a new skill; confidence might be coming along to PMO Flashmob for the first time….
It works really well and you could consider it during your PMO meeting – or even as an ice-breaker in a retrospective type session.
