Benefit Name



Cost reduction



This would apply to centralized services, such as centralized purchasing or vendor management.

Using expert purchasing and supplier contract management skills on all projects reduces costs.

Reduced risk



This could apply to many services, such as assisting projects with planning and estimation.

Improved planning and estimation make the baseline schedule more attainable, and also identify risks so that they can be managed proactively.

Reduce internal time

Accounting department

This is an example of a benefit to a specific internal department. It might apply to the manage accounts function.

By having a bookkeeper experienced in online project management keep all accounts up to date, it eliminates the time currently spent by the accounting department preparing special financial status reports for projects.

On-time project delivery


This could apply to many services, such as training.

Training project managers in communications will help them remove roadblocks and stay on schedule.

Accelerated promotion

Project managers

This would apply to support services such as training, mentoring, and staff support.

Training, mentoring, and staff support allow project managers to learn and apply skills that will make them eligible for promotion and bonuses.
