Earned Value Management Overview

Course overview

Earned value management (EVM) is a proven method for planning and managing project performance. It establishes a consistent way of planning and estimating all types of project work efforts.

Earned Value provides the framework for developing consistent project management measurements across projects and industries.

It is a true project performance measurement system combining aspects such as actual physical achievement and costs incurred, and comparing with planned and budgeted expectation.

It is promoted and supported by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Association for Project Management (APM) and is mandatory on many government projects.

This one-day course is designed to introduce delegates to earned value management principles and demonstrate how they can be used to monitor and control projects. Several scenario based exercises are incorporated to how earned value techniques can be applied.
