Why Choose this Training Course?
Why Choose this Course?
This Value Engineering (VE) course is a creative, organized approach which engages project stakeholders to define their business or performance requirements, maximises creativity and innovation to identify best value solutions, enabling more robust, effective decision making during project planning, procurement and execution and through focusing on performance requirements and avoiding abortive work.
VE will improve the performance, profitability, quality and risk levels of the client organisation and the whole project team. This course will provide best value results from achieving the right balance between the benefit the client achieves from a project or service and the resource required to deliver it, not just cost alone.
This course will feature:
Decision making based on value criteria
Applying cost estimating at the appropriate level
Understanding business need, project scope, function, and performance need
Securing real benefits by integrating VE with existing project management processes
Introduction to powerful techniques of function analysis, facilitation and creative thinking
