Part 2: Setting Target Values

Join our June breakfast and hear from our panelist who will discuss Target Value Delivery. This is the first of a two-part discussion focusing on how target values are set. Panelists will discuss their experience in developing a Project Target Value and then establishing specific target value buckets. Panelists will show us examples of the systems they use. They will provide project examples that will illustrate some of their lessons learned in developing target values. Part two will follow up on this discussion in our October breakfast to discuss how teams deliver on specific targets.
