Originally conceived at the Boston Consultancy Group and later endorsed by both Gartner and the Harvard Business School, using the TOP Value Equation enables you to define and communicate about your project from an 'impact to business' perspective; identify, quantify and track all the benefits available for you to deliver; and find the change activities needed to deliver them.

The agenda for the two days is:
The course is designed for all who want to work professionally in creating and delivering benefits and value: internal roles such as Project and Programme Managers, Portfolio owners, Product Managers, Governance team members, and the office of the PMO; and external roles such as those developing customer solutions and implementations, and other business development opportunities.
The course is a blend of theory, discussion, and hands-on practice. A minimum of 50% of class hours is spent in breakout sessions where you directly apply the TOP processes to a prepared case study that is provided by the instructor.
In case of a tailored, in-house course at your premises, the case study may be one of your own or to be provided by the instructor according to your wishes.
Course hours are 8:30 – 17:00. Expect to use 4 hours in preparation for the course, and two hours following day one.
The course is given by an English speaking instructor who is also fluent in Danish.
Participants receive the current edition of the TOP Value Equation theory handbook, and on request may receive soft copies of all templates used during the course, as well as 12 months free access to behind-the-wall on-line content to the TOP Value Equation Center of Expertise.
A 3rd day can be added to your course program for the purpose of preparing for and taking the TOP Certified Practitioner exam. You are welcome to alert us to your interest for this in the comments field of the registration form.
