Value Management / Value Engineering (VM/VE)
What is Value Management / Value Engineering?
Value Management / Value Engineering (VM/VE) is one of the most powerful consulting methodologies ever developed. Originally formulated in the late 1940s by Lawrence Miles at General Electric and refined by many practitioners over the years, VM/VE is a powerful problem solving system designed to maximize the value of products, services, projects, business processes and organisations.
VM/VE is an evidence based methodology featuring team working, sense making, optioneering, stakeholder management and benefits realization. Skilled value practitioners are able to apply the framework to solve most organizational problems.
Our courses are registered VM/VE modules:
- VM1 => Foundation Course in VM / VE (brochure of all three VM courses)
- VM2 => Advanced 1 Course in VM / VE (brochure of all three VM courses)
- VM3 => Advanced 2 Course in VM/VE (brochure of all three VM courses)

The European Standard BS EN 12973:2000 Value Management was developed to keep EU economies competitive in global markets and the European Training and Certification scheme was developed within which our courses are fully approved. Certified value practitioners (PVMs) are registered to practice throughout Europe.
Unlike many consulting methodologies, VM/VE is designed to be future-proof and it constantly evolves to incorporate new thinking and innovation. You can find practitioners working in most areas of commerce, public sector and even in leading not-for-profit organisations. Contact us for more information.
