Grounded for the future – cost an innovation go hand in hand
The motto of the conference “Grounded for the future - cost and innovation go hand in hand“ wants to sensitize people for this situation and encourage at the same time to confront the contradictions and understand them as a challenge for a successful project work.
The 19th Value Management Conference in Germany will be an international conference. It provides the opportunity for all people interested in VA/VE to look beyond one's own horizon and to enrich the own experience through the exchange with colleagues from all around the world.
