Value Management to Meet Client Goals and Objectives from Day One of Design

Abstract

As a value practitioner for almost 40 years, I have led VM Studies on hundreds of projects in which the goals and objectives of the client are not met by 30% design and, in some cases, 60% design. How does that happen? Fortunately, a VM Study can often use those goals and objectives to get the project back on the right track. However, that usually involves redesign with potential schedule delays. What happens to such projects with no VM intervention? They will often end with quality issues, delays, required redesign, performance that does not meet client objectives, cost overruns and unhappy clients. An innovative (in North America) approach using VM can avoid these outcomes.
