Value is defined as: 

Monetary Worth - an amount thought to be a fair eschange for something.

Full Recovered Worth - the adequate or satisfactory return on, or recompense for something.


All project sponsors are looking for value.  They want a fair exchange for the money they are investing in the project.  In common business terms, they want a favorable Return On Investment.


In project management, the value of a project is scope completed on or ahead of schedule, at or under budget and meeting all the requirements.  That is what the project sponsor wants and needs.  We need to constantly integrate scope, schedule and cost to deliver value.  The key word is, integrate.  We, as professional project managers have an obligation to provide value in return for our sponsor's investment. 


Are you tracking value on your project?  You are probably tracking progress to schedule and cost to budget but have you integrated scope, schedule and cost?  How do you know you are providing value?  How does your sponsor know he or she is getting a good return on investment?
