Value Management (VM) Module I Training Course for Construction Professionals

 

6,13, 20 & 27 November 2021

 

WHY THIS COURSE?

In this present day, construction professionals should not only acquire technical knowledge. They must also develop various management skills to achieve project goals. Hong Kong Government technical circular (ETWB TCW No. 35/2002) mentioned that “In general VM studies shall be conducted whenever it is perceived that there are likely to be net benefits. In view of the commonly accepted fact that there should be net benefits for major projects and the relatively small cost of a VM workshop, departments should consider the suitability of conducting VM workshops for every major and complex project.  It should be noted that net benefits (which may be in terms of time, cost or quality of solution) is the key consideration rather than the mere size of a project. For this purpose, a major project means one having an estimated project cost exceeding $200 million”.

However, qualified facilitators / co-facilitators are hard to come by in HK.  To enhance the innovative team decision-making management techniques in construction industry, the HKIVM is organising this 28-hour Module I Training Course for those who have attended the registered 12-hour VM training programme organised by the HKIVM. The Module I Course teaches VM in a project-based manner.  Participants will be engaged in “real-time” decision-making using the VM methodologies during the course.
