The Project Value Management Professional (PVMP™) program teaches how to turn a business case into an effective "Business Value Plan" (BVP™).  The BVP approach provides an effective methodology and the “how-to” skills needed to assess, measure, and manage the benefits for any initiative.

By bringing together all the relevant value creation activities across all project stakeholders, coordinating, communicating, and tracking benefits will become more streamlined and easier to manage.

The PVMP course is based on the Governan Excellence in Value Creation (EVC™) Framework. Currently in its fourth version, the EVC framework has been continuously enhanced since 1992.

Projects where the enabling methods from the EVC Framework are applied, have a considerably higher chance of being successfully, because the project stakeholders learn how to proactively collaborate in the identification, measurement, and realization of the operational, economic, and strategic benefits from the solutions involved in the project.


PVMP complements other popular certification programs, such as the PMP, ITIL, Lean, DevOps, Scrum, and the PRINCE2 certifications. PVMP provides the specific EVC methods and “how-to” skills to identify, assess, measure, and communicate both tangible and intangible benefits from any project or solution.


PMPs that attend the PVMP training and pass the PVMP certification exam, are also eligible to receive PDU credits through our strategic partner Global Lynx.
