We need to talk about Value

We often talk about "delivering value" or "adding value". We don't always stop to think about what we actually mean by value, let alone talk about it. Nick will give a whistle-stop tour of various frameworks and ideas around value, before focusing in on value co-creation.

How is Value dealt with in Lean, Agile, Customer Experience and IIBA's Business Analysis Core Concept Model? We'll be finding out. The journey will take us from Adam Smith and Karl Marx to Ikea and Uber, via Michael Porter and the Toyota Production System. Hold on tight!
