“Chicken, Eggs, and Breakfast”

Whereas a chicken makes the investment of producing the deliverable (eggs), what really matters is the benefit gained from the eggs – for example, the breakfast.

We are well acquainted with how to track from chicken to eggs, using, for example the earned value method. However, while making breakfast, program managers need to know how to evaluate progress towards the actual benefits and then be able to evaluate the situation, once the meal is being consumed.

Although Earned Value allows the program manager to track progress towards creating the deliverables, it only allows you to track how close you are to having breakfast ready. What is missing is a reliable method for linking this information intelligently to the end-goal of benefits delivery and realization.

The solution is to use Earned Benefit.

This talk explains how Earned Benefit has been developed to enhance the Earned Value method, and provide an intelligent link between progress information and program objectives.
