Value Engineering & Design Thinking Workshops
Companies and organizations often talk about the need for innovation to adapt to a changing business or operational environment, but not many organizations know how to effectively spur and implement innovative ideas. This is where value engineering and design thinking come into play.
Value engineering began in World War II as a structured process to produce and implement innovative ideas. It became a competitive edge for companies, and is actively implemented across the engineering and manufacturing industries, and required on US federal projects of over $5 million. We have Value Management Associates (VMA) and Certified Value Specialists (CVS) certified by SAVE International, the world's value engineering certification body.
Design Thinking started in the world of design as an iterative approach to facilitating innovation. Some of the world’s leading brands, such as Apple, Google, Samsung and GE, have rapidly adopted the Design Thinking approach and are developing internal "innovation labs" employing Design Thinking facilitators, and Design Thinking is being taught at leading universities around the world, including d.school, Stanford, Harvard and MIT. Our Design Thinking facilitators are certified by IDEO and the Univerity of Virginia's Darden School of Business.
PMOK Consulting can facilitate Value Engineering and Design Thinking workshops, as well as our proprietary InnoVE approach that combines the best of both methodologies to maximize innovation and impact for our clients.
