To make this practical, our project team creates a PROJECT-TO-VALUE mapping. This mapping visualises the link between project elements and value creation for the company.

This mapping is used for multiple purposes:

  • Communication tool – to explain to the broader Organization why we are doing the project
  • Decision making mechanism – Acts as a guideline for important project decisions including scope, plan, solution design, etc.
  • Project focus – As a reminder for the project team on the importance of value Realization(not just focus on “going live”)
  • Performance monitoring – This model can act as an initial step towards an effective management dashboard

“Enforce the companies’ brand name, create an optimal and sustainable work environment, reduce or manage all facility-related risks at a minimal ‘total cost of housing’.”
