Overview:

We all know that Earned Value Management is a project management technique for measuring project performance and progress. But many of us struggle to understand EVM, and struggle to apply EVM analysis on our projects. Attendees of this Workshop will gain an understanding of Earned Value, and how it can be used (a) to track progress to a schedule, (b) to generate forecasts for schedule completion, and (c) as a management tool.

 

In This Workshop We Will Cover:

 

  1. Introduction/refresher of Earned Value
  2. Overview of Defense Contract Management Agency's role in EVM
  3. The relationship between scheduling best practices and EV
  4. Importance of accurate reporting
  5. How past performance impacts time and cost forecasting
  6. Some practical EV analysis exercises
