Value Management is the overarching process that leads us to better value in our products, projects, and processes. It does this through innovation, collaboration, and the change in perspective we can achieve through Function Analysis and FAST visual mapping. It is the answer we need for stalled margins, underperforming and over budget projects: not to cheapen our products and projects, but to innovate our way to a new solution. - John Sloggy

Value Engineering seeks the optimum value for the money in projects, processes, and products. Our VE teams are able to offer alternatives to the existing solution that may improve effectiveness, improve sustainability, mitigate or avoid risks, and reduce total life/cycle cost and/or improve performance.
Taking the AVM – Agile Value Management model of focused short-lived teams to the next level (effective implementation) brings us to the twin challenges of efficiency and effectiveness:
How to structure and support the team to achieve a higher level of efficiency than previously realized – A faster response to address the problem at hand
How to ensure the team will effectively achieve the goal of rapid problem resolution – Developing the right solution for the right problem to avoid having to repeatedly revisit to problem. Fast is of no use if the team's effort does not deal with the important factors and/or root cause
In order to accomplish this several things need to happen; first, the team must identify the correct problem/situation to be addressed. What is needed by the team is a generic problem-solving model that is applicable across a broad spectrum of problem types.

A proven model exists to achieve these goals in the compressed time frame required, it is the Agile Value Management Model.
