      Value Management

      Value management is concerned with the overall improvement in value to a project and not necessarily savings in cost.  Vector uses specific management tools and techniques in a systematic manner to address issues of value for money both in terms of capital expenditure and ongoing operational costs.
    • Risk Management

      Risk Management

      Risk management is still an undersold and largely under-used concept in the world of project management. At Vector we aim to identify, assess, plan for and manage potential problem areas for a project, thereby eliminating or minimising any detrimental effect on the project’s objectives.

      Benchmarking

      Benchmarking is a process used in management, and particularly strategic management, in which organisations evaluate various aspects of their processes in relation to best practice.  Vector helps organisations to develop plans to adopt such best practice, usually with the aim of increasing some aspect of performance.
