MoV® – Value Management

PM Solutions Australia provides AXELOS MoV® consulting services, to better assist customers maximise and realise the value from their portfolios, programs and projects.

The PM Solutions Australia applied MoV® best practice guidance, is aimed at anyone involved in directing, managing, supporting and delivering portfolios, programmes and projects. MoV® is all about maximising value in line with the program and project objectives and the key stakeholder requirements. It is not simply about minimising costs. MoV® supports the project, portfolio, programme and risk management principles of PRINCE2®, MoP®, MSP® and M_o_R®, but its main focus is on maximising value.

What is MoV® assurance?

Management of Value assurance provides essential framework and guidance on the most efficient use of resources to maximise the benefits ‘from portfolios’, ‘programs’ and ‘projects’. MoV® combines a set of principles, processes and techniques. MoV® has evolved from the tried and tested successful practice of value management used across many sectors and over many years. At the portfolio level, it reflects the organisation’s strategic objectives and sets the agenda for the programs that deliver these objectives which, in turn, defines the programs and projects undertaken to achieve the required outputs. 

How does MoV® assurance benefit organisations

Management of Value assurance provides essential guidance on the most efficient use of resources to maximise the benefits from portfolios, programs and projects.

  • Proposes a definition of value that embraces both monetary and non-monetary benefits
  • Provides a method, supported by techniques for allocating funds as effectively as possible
  • Allows you to increase the value you deliver and make better use of resources
  • Highlights the best way to respond to both external and internal influences

How do we assist organisations to better manage value?

1
Defined methodology and principles

MoV® proposes a definition of value that embraces both monetary and non-monetary benefits, and argues that the subjectivity of value increases the need for it to be actively managed. It provides a method, supported by techniques, for allocating scarce funds as effectively as possible. MoV® has evolved from the practice of value management across many sectors, over many years.

The MoV® methodology includes four integrated concepts:

  1. Principles: factors that underpin MoV. The principles are based on tried-and-tested practices over the past fifty years, and successful value management is unlikely to be achieved if these are not applied. However they are not prescriptive and organization need to develop their own policies and processes to meet their specific requirements.
  2. Processes and Techniques: the methods and tools used in MoV application. The set of processes define the structure of the approach and use of specialist techniques to provide a practical approach to understanding value.
  3. Approach: How to apply MoV to portfolios, programs and projects.
  4. Environment: Responding to external and internal influences.

Tried-and-tested value management practices

MoV® has evolved from the practice of value management across many sectors, over many years. MoV® helps to deliver more of the right things, for less and leads to more effective use of available resources. When times are good, the demand is to deliver more with less to remain competitive. In leaner times, the demands are for cutting costs in a manner that inflicts as little harm as possible. In some circumstances, value may be added by stopping certain activities or projects. MoV provides a way of addressing this in an objective and auditable manner.

Supporting enterprise agility

The MoV® method shares with Lean (and, to a lesser extent, Six Sigma) the principles of involvement of the customer, elimination of waste and greater efficiency. But where Lean and Six Sigma focus on efficient delivery, MoV is more focused on efficiency, effectiveness, and economy.

Applying defined techniques and measuring benefits

MoV® provides essential guidance on the most efficient use of resources to maximise the benefits ‘from portfolios’, ‘programs’ and ‘projects’. MoV® combines a set of principles, processes and techniques.

The MoV process delivers defined benefits in the management of value across organisations:

  • Proposes a definition of value that embraces both monetary and non-monetary benefits
  • Provides a method, supported by techniques for allocating funds as effectively as possible
  • Allows you to increase the value you deliver and make better use of resources
  • Highlights the best way to respond to both external and internal influences
