About the Course
Earned Value Management is an effective and vital tool for the monitoring and control of a project, program, or portfolio. This tool enables effective risk management by providing actual cost and schedule performance relative to scope and provides predictive measurements that can allow for early course correction to facilitate the successful completion of the project.
Through lecture, discussion, and activities, participants will expand their expertise in the following areas:
- Earned Value Theory: what is the basis of EVM and the efficacy of the tool
- Earned Value definitions, terminology, methods, and formulas
- Implementing Earned Value Management in a Project, Program, or Portfolio
- Earned Value Reporting
- Program Office Roles and Responsibilities in implementing and using EVM
- Earned Value Management in alternative environments i.e. non monetized work packages, Scrum, etc.
By the end of this workshop, participants will have the information and resources they need to contribute to and Earned Value Management practice and evaluate Earned Value Data. Additionally, they will be able to implement and utilize EVM techniques even in environments where full EVM reporting is not traditionally applied.
