  • BCS Quality - Architecture Engineering: with emphasis on engineering in quality and value quantitatively

If you are booking as a BCS Member please enter the promotional code of BCSMember please also ensure you provide your membership number when registering on the day 

 Please bring if possible, a laptop or tablet etc so you can access fully the presentation. The vast digital library, and planning tools. No Lunch will be provided 



You will be introduced to the skills to make decisions based on finding and prioritizing a set of Solutions (designs, architecture components) that optimally satisfy a set of quantified Stakeholder Values or Product Values, numerically, with evidence, risks and uncertainties. Using a Value Decision Table (aka Impact Estimation Table, Value Tables). 

Value Tables can facilitate a process between managers and engineers to solicit, prioritize, communicate and reason about the decisions being taken.

 This skill set will add tremendous value to any decision taking process. A Scrum product owners, or a project manager, can logically and dynamically (in agile steps) prioritize and optimize a product backlog, or any set of Solutions to be implemented.

Professionals with this Value Delivery Certification (Evo or Evolutionary Project Delivery) approach will have the skills to manage the development team to deliver real Value to Stakeholders, early (next week) and frequently (every week). They know how to use a Value Delivery Table to estimate and track Value delivered to Stakeholders over time.

While others are focusing on delivering the right functions, a certified Value Delivery professional leads his/her team to deliver real Value to Stakeholders.


Workshop mode: You might be in a team of about 4 people who will pick a project that at least one of you were part of in the Requirements workshop. Your team will find, specify quantify and prioritize solutions to meet the requirement in a customized Google doc tool.

There will be some lectures and lots of practical work on your teams’ project. At the end of the day, your team could present your teams work.

About Speaker: Tom Gilb

Tom Gilb and Kai Gilb have, together with many professional friends and clients, personally developed the Agile methods they teach. The methods have been developed over five decades of practice all over the world in both small companies and projects, as well as in the largest companies and projects. Their website www.Gilb.com/downloads offers free papers, slides, and cases about Agile and other subjects.

There are many organisations, and individuals, who use some or all of their methods. IBM and HP were two early corporate-wide adopters (1980, 1988). Recently (2012) over 15,000 engineers at Intel have voluntarily adopted the Planguage requirements specification methods; in addition to practicing to a lesser extent Evo, Spec QC and other Gilb methods. Many other multinationals are in various phases of adopting and practicing the Gilb methods. Many smaller companies also use the methods. They have advised top management at UK Companies on Business Agile in 2013 and earlier.
