Value realization is one of the most challenging disciplines today, but the Value eXpert certification program is uniquely designed with value modelling training and project mentoring in the participant’s own existing company projects.

This ensures the highest level of knowledge transfer and skills building to meet today’s organizations’ cross-disciplinary competency requirements for professionals involved in new and existing projects.

The certification program has been structured to build on the existing competencies of the practitioner and infuse a new way of thinking, working and modelling. This is done through intensive classroom training, in-depth tutoring and coaching throughout the modules, as well as with hands-on project experience where you apply the acquired transformation, change and innovation modelling techniques and its related disciplines.

The certification program with Individual Performance Coaching is designed by the Global University Alliance.

The Value Management Lifecycle

In the context of value modelling principles, the course participant will learn to think and split their work into the 6 different Value Lifecycle phases. The lifecycle thinking is vital as it represents the course of developmental changes through which the value components and the related objects and artifacts change in terms of innovation and/or transformation as it passes during its lifetime. From analysis, design, construction, implementation/deployment, run and maintenance to continuous improvement.
