More about benefit realization and strategic planning

What is benefit realization ?

Cleerit supports work with benefit realization. But what does benefit realization mean in the public sector? Benefit realization is a management strategy that provides support for directing resources and investments to where they do the most good, ie where the expected benefit, the impact goals, of the changes you want to implement is highest. The Swedish National Financial Management Authority, ESV, is responsible for developing public-sector financial management in Sweden and provides the following definition:

Benefit realization as a concept is a systematic approach to optimizing and securing the repatriation of the expected benefits of investments in the public sector. A systematic realization of benefits always begins with specifying (identifying, quantifying and evaluating) the expected benefits for the stakeholders involved.

The Swedish National Financial Management Authority – From needs-driven development to benefit realization – an overview

It requires a structured planning process where the expected benefits for the stakeholders involved are specified, quantified and evaluated. Working with realization of benefits is about investments having the intended effect both for one’s own organization and for the citizens. Then it is important to have an approach that focuses on the benefit (effect) and not just on the deliverables.

Benefit realization means structured management and leadership in order to realize and optimize the benefits of investments. It is not an independent process, but sews together the organization’s existing control and management processes to collaborate towards the common goals, realize the desired changes and generate the planned effects.

Can a strategic plan be both structured and agile?

In today’s fast-moving world, agility is a prerequisite for long-term success, but the reality is that we have to constantly plan for how to use the organization’s resources. Some are plans are short-term, others extend into an imaginary future. Agile organizations face the challenge of taking advantage of decentralized initiatives (bottom-up) and ensuring that they are carried out within the organisation’s strategic priorities (top-down).

Managing with this built-in contradiction requires new processes and routines for planning and coordination. Henry Mintzberg defined strategic planning as “a formalized system for codifying, elaborating and operationalizing the strategies which organizations already have“. But in the meeting between agile processes and strategic planning, two fundamental questions are asked: when we put all these initiatives together, do they contribute to our organization’s strategic goals? And, what can we learn from these initiatives to make our strategic plan even more successful?

That is agile planning. Setting ambitious goals, defining clear processes to achieve them, implementing these processes and continuously learning from them, is a prerequisite for success and should permeate the entire organization in the daily work at all levels.

The importance of making use of knowledge and experience

Today, the ability to generate data is virtually unlimited thanks to Big Data. And Big Data is being transformed into Business Intelligence. But that does not necessarily mean that we can create better plans for the future. As Henry Mintzberg writes in his book The rise and fall of strategic planning, soft data is also important:

While hard data may inform the intellect, it is largely soft data that generate wisdom. They may be difficult to ‘analyze’, but they are indispensable for synthesis — the key to strategy making.

Today, more than ever, knowledge and experience are the most important resources of the learning organization. Or, as Lawrence ”Larry” Bossidy – previously chairman of the board at General Electric and CEO at AlliedSignal (later Honeywell) and author of the book Execution: the Discipline of Getting Things Done, said:

At the end of the day, you bet on people, not on strategies.

We think before we act, and our actions help us to think

Traditionally, the development of the strategic plan is thought of as a sequential process, which begins with an initial analysis that is elaborated and formalized to culminate in possible action. But strategy design as a learning process can also take the opposite direction. We think before we act, to feel safe, but our actions also make us think. We try it out, experiment with new initiatives, and these experiments are gradually shaped into viable patterns that become strategies.

A successful strategy design takes place every day, and therefore strategic planning is an ongoing and iterative learning process.
