Value Methodology fundamentals 1

This workshop is licenced by SAVE International

Individuals planning to become a Value Methodology Associate (VMA) or Certified Value Specialists (CVS® ) are required to attend.


This workshop will demonstrate the effectiveness of the VM techniques in enhancing value while reducing costs.

The objective of this training workshop is to acquaint participants with the Value Methodology (VM) and its function-oriented, decision-making process.

Workshop participants should also expect to develop proposals ready for implementation on any projects approved for the workshop.

The VM has been used for over 70 years to assist management and engineering professionals to obtain optimum value for each dollar spent.

Typical savings range from 15 to 35% for most projects.

This Module I course teaches VM in a hands-on, project-based manner. During the workshop managers of architecture, manufacturing, finance, quality, marketing, and engineering (civil, product, industrial, manufacturing, process) will engage in “real-time” decision-making using VM tools, to ensure quality and value while reducing the cost of their projects. Participants will apply the value methodology and decision-making skills to an actual project to gain practical experience using what they learn.
