Alignment of value cases for involved stakeholders needed for cooperation

In each of the measures included in this Continuous Improvement Track, different stakeholders are involved in order to achieve a goal. These goals differ between the measures,  but once implemented will benefit the overall performance of the rail product in general.

Having analysed the stakeholders individually in terms of value offering in the rail product enhances the understanding of these stakeholders. It becomes clear that any successful implementation hinges very much on the balance between the effort to realize a specific goal and the kind of reward that is expected from the perspective of the stakeholder. The Value Case methodology identified possible bottlenecks and opportunities that requires attention during this CIT.

It can be expected that an equal sharing between effort and reward is difficult to accomplish, yet this may prove not to be negative per se. While implementing small improvement during this CIT, unexpected outcomes may present new opportunities for stakeholders and shifting attention to areas not thought of before. As such, increased effort by one stakeholder could spur efforts by other stakeholders not expected beforehand. Thus it is important to continuously discuss results and share information and experiences between stakeholders.
