86209 - Værdiskabelse i projekter - en effektiv og praktisk tilgang

Value creation in projects - An efficient and practical approach

How do you secure that your projects deliver the expected business value? Gain insight and competence in the TOP Value Equation method that handles the whole project - from idea to the realization of the value - and provides you with efficient tools to optimize all parts of your project, e.g. the business case, the ongoing monitoring of progress, follow up on delivery, business implementation, benefits realization, etc. The TOP method maximizes the business value of your projects.

TOP Value Equation is a best practice method, which ties the business goals to the related benefits, the expected business value and the change activities in one single process. It ensures that these elements are made concrete and measurable, and helps you to keep the overview and maximize the value of your projects from day 1.


The method is a valuable tool in relation to any project; it is easy to apply and constitutes a strong supplement to all the common project- and program management techniques and frameworks as e.g. PMI, IPMA, PRINCE2 and MSP.

TOP Value Equation is an internationally recognized, holistic approach to value creation, which gives you the methods, processes and tools to create a value chain for your project, which can be used actively and efficiently in the management of the project.

It is refreshing and important to see an approach that focuses projects on the delivery of outcomes and benefits. TOP gives a pragmatic and easy to use method that keeps all stakeholders concentrated on ‘what we want to achieve” and ‘how we will financially benefit’.

- Mark Scotland, COO at Dwarf, former CIO at Damco
