Speaker:
Tom Gilb

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear it from one of the leading lights in project management on this important topic. Tom will present the theory and practice of his Evo method for project management, together with his Planguage (Planning Language). The Evo method (also known as Value Delivery Method VDM) is a radical simplification (Lean!) from a project management view. Long-range and short-term focus is on real proven delivery of tangible stakeholder value. The method has been successfully used worldwide in IT, Software Product, Aircraft, and Telecomms situations and even Charity Planning Projects. Tom will sweep through the stages of his model from: value clarity, solution responsibility, value reporting and just-in-time planning. He will illustrate with case studies of real projects with details, and results. Make friends by delivering results. Shock your boss!

About the Speaker:

Tom Gilb has been consulting on management problems, for top management since 1962. As a result he has developed and refined his own powerful methods for management planning. He has worked for many of these years with his son Kai Gilb. These methods are jointly called Planguage, a Planning Language. They are unique in helping managers to think quantitatively about the qualitative aspects of their decisions. For example how to quantify engineering productivity, or general product quality for large organisations. Tom does not profile himself as a management consultant. In fact, he works at the grass roots of advanced engineering, systems, software, aircraft, IT, telecoms and electronics. His expertise and reputation are significant and Tom has been invited to lecture at over 100 universities worldwide. He has published nine books. The latest is Competitive Engineering.

And then join us afterwards for a networking opportunity and light refreshments including a glass of festive mulled wine.
