Giving visibility into UBC’s progress towards achieving IRP benefits
Workday is not solely a technology investment, but rather a broader people, process, and technology transformation. In 2017, the Integrated Renewal Program (IRP) introduced a Benefits Realization Management (BRM) framework to identify goals and ensure that Workday delivers benefits to UBC.
The BRM framework takes a structured approach to program success, ultimately measuring the high-value desired outcomes and benefits that units and departments across UBC achieve using our new systems and processes.
- Identifying and agreeing to the specific outcomes to achieve that are most valuable to stakeholders and to realize the desired benefits.
- Defining simple, effective, and reasonable ways to measure those outcomes.
- Capturing the baseline, multi-year target(s), and post-implementation values of the outcome measurements.
- Communicating progress and success, and taking action when not on track.
- Facilitating ongoing measurement of outcomes, realization of benefits, and continuous improvement.
The heart of the BRM framework centers on selecting the right outcomes and measures. Following go-live, the BRM Dashboard and Scorecards give visibility into how the university is progressing towards achieving IRP benefits. Some outcomes are realized immediately while others require ongoing, long-term measurement, adoption, and improvement across UBC.
