Value Management: Demonstrate Credibility by Not Just Measuring Progress but MAKING Progress to Gain a Seat at the Decision Maker's Table!

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in Groundhog day where you face the same problems over and over?


Do you try your best yet still get criticised for late delivery or for a failing service?


Unless you are contributing to the activities that create the most value you’re going to be distracted by bureaucracy and quite often become part of the problem rather than part of the solution.


This  causes friction between different departments as flow of information, delivery of projects and services become constrained, stuck in a queue or waiting approval.


Sometimes the ONLY way to get something done is to bypass the process or system that actually implemented to make the organisation more effective!


This is where Value Management comes into play.


Value Management is the process that you and your colleagues take to make sure you understand what the goal is, identify where the obstacles are that prevent your team from reaching it, figuring out a plan and making it happen. - Not just measuring progress, but MAKING progress!

This way you you can start to unblock the choke-points, straighten the kinks in the process, remove unnecessary steps and start to see improvements in the way services, products and projects are delivered.


This also means departments can cooperate better and be more likely to deliver projects on time and with more regular consistent ‘flow’.


Having set expectations in Relationship Management, Value Management effectively closes the gap in expectations between provider and customer.


This is why Value Management builds you a reputation of excellence as it shows stakeholders you can get them results.


They see you as someone who gets things done and makes an impact which makes them take notice of the value you add to the organisation.


Here’s what you will discover in the Value Management course:

  • How to gain clarity on what your goals are and how they relate to the customer.
  • How to identify and focus on activities which add the most value to the the customer and organisation.
  • How to define value and measure your progress towards your goals
  • How to avoid wasting time treating the symptoms that cause you to work overtime and get to the root cause of the issue.
  • How to improve the way you and your team work in ANY activity.
  • The simple secrets that can free up the time for you to focus on more strategic activities.
  • How to find the rationale to say no to low value activities.
  • How to overcome bureaucracy and make your team and organisation more effective.

"Jon shares his experience throughout this intensive course and gave fantastic insight into how we work in organisations - it has inspired an exciting to-do list! I can't recommend the course enough - it gets 10 out of 10!"

How would you like to help decision-makers understand what technology can do for them in the next three to five years? How would you do that?

This is why you first need to understand what the company is about, the service it provides its customers, its values, how it operates, and what its principles are to help focus on what technology applications add value or not.


Then you can come up with ideas and give decision-makers options on what will give them a competitive advantage.


Seeking alignment and direction with your business peers on the opportunity that Technology can bring means a fundamental shift in mindset and approach.


This is why in my strategy management course you will discover:

  • How to research what new kinds of competition is on the horizon.
  • How to consider the technology opportunities available to your organisation
  • How to understand the application of that technology to your company context.
  • How to inspire colleagues with new ideas so you can prepare for change and be one step ahead of your competitors.
  • How to clearly show what your colleagues are trying to achieve and how through their teams.
  • How to work out whether there is duplication of effort, gaps in key strategic areas and opportunities to leverage existing assets.
  • How to check whether different teams are aligned and working towards the same big strategic themes.
  • How to provide a timeline for the major assets that plug the gap in skills, processes and technology.
  • How to communicate your ideas to everyone in the organisation so they can understand how their role fits in with the overall strategy.

I've participated in all of Jon's 5 courses. They are fantastically accessible and immediately applicable. You'll walk away encouraged that these tried and tested techniques can give you the confidence to make the difference in your day to day work. Thoroughly recommended!
