Using earned value management (EVM)
on your projects is like turning on the lights. It provides project managers
with a clear and complete view of project performance. It illuminates where a
project is--and should be--at any given time.
EVM is a cost-accounting system for projects. It is a monitoring tool that integrates the planning of time, scope, and cost to ensure that all three constraints are monitored and controlled in concert-- rather than isolation. Running a project without EVM can be like operating a business without a bookkeeper.
This seminar will explain how EVM is used in the reporting and control of projects. It illustrates how EVM integrates time, scope, and cost for performance analysis. Attendees will learn just how easy it is to adapt project plans for use with EVM. They will be provided with detailed rules for EVM adoption. Along with the strengths of EVM, this web seminar will also outline its limitations.
