Feedback on Benefits Realisation Ideas

One of the aims of the benefits realisation projects is to encourage sharing and take-up of project outcomes across institutions. Peer review from members of other institutions and projects is one approach that can help to shape your ideas into a useful proposal.

Four willing volunteers agreed to share their ideas and receive constructive feedback. After a short overview of what they were considering, the discussion was opened for comments and suggestions from all present. All presenters received useful comments which they were able to use to refine their ideas.

The presentations generated issues for wider discussion. One issue was around the appropriateness of involving software vendors as partners in project ideas, as it could be seen to unfairly promote a specific vendor product. It was suggested that their user communities are often less interested in the product than the practice associated with its use, in some circumstance this could provide a useful user community to disseminate project outcomes.

During the presentations it emerged that several ideas intended producing a ‘toolkit’ to support take-up of project outcomes around specific topics such as Green ICT. It was felt that there could be some synergy across the development of toolkits either around take-up or topics. An assembly is now being arranged to take this idea forward.
