Target Value Delivery 

Staying within the allowable budget and ensuring the team’s innovation decreases waste and increases value to the customer are attributes of successful project delivery and can be achieved through Target Value Delivery (TVD). TVD is a disciplined management practice with several phases (Business Case Planning, Validation, Value Delivery and Value Post Construction) meant to be applied holistically to obtain maximum value. The phases of TVD can be supplemented by core components like team organization, Big Room, project planning, cost modeling, continuous estimating and conceptual design. Start your journey towards mastering each of the TVD phases and all of the core components through simulation, group discussion and step-by-step guidance in the 8-hour Target Value Delivery education course to align your project deliverables with customer-defined value.

  • Describe attributes of a team culture required to support TVD
  • Understand how to align project deliverables with customer-defined value 
  • Define the major phases in the TVD process and how they relate
  • Gain first-hand experience with the types of challenges and decisions which typically arise in TVD
