Practical Application of Earned Value Management
(EVM) to Projects
Presenter: Geoff Fitzhenry
Thursday, 21st September 2017
Synopsis: Tracking the progress of projects requires the implementation of a methodology at the start of the project. More often than not, this planning and implementation does not get adequate attention, and results in the uncertainty of the status of the project’s progress. Consequently the recovery actions, which project managers and functional leads are required to take to drive the project back on track, end up being delayed, with costly impacts to the project.
Earned Value Management (EVM) forms part of every training course in Project Management, however, applying this to real life projects is seldom accomplished. This presentation applies the principles of EVM to practical work as experienced on projects and provides insight to planners and functional leads on the practical implementation of progress monitoring and reporting.
