The correct answer of where to start to create a stronger economy for our business or country is not from high-tech or microchip industry, it is from the mind of our citizen- "Value Management" is an important knowledge that combines systematic thinking with works and everyday life.

A group of "Value Engineering" colleagues thought that this kind of knowledge can influence the economic growth of the nation, business and individual, but without an adequate environment, they were not able to share this knowledge to help those who needed. After a period of preparation and promoting, this groups of people who shared a similar vision has managed to influence many others, their shared vision is to create an environment that can benefit the people of the society, business owners and the nation to create wealth and improve abilities and economy from the knowledge of the "Value Management" through promoting and sharing by an expert team and organization.
