Value balances performance, cost, time, and risk on every project, process, and product. Value Engineering (VE) is a management practice that forces creativity and drives innovation through the analysis of functions. This presentation will offer VE’s history, methodology, applications, and benefits as one of the most results-oriented tools a project manager should have in her toolbox. This conversation will demonstrate how you, as project managers, can ensure objectivity and drive decision making on the critical path of your long-term investment.

About the PM Industry Insights

PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc. 

Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
