Overview

Earned Value Management (EVM) is a fundamental process in both the APM’s and PMI Bodies of Knowledge and has it roots in the United States Department of Defense (DOD) Cost/Schedule Control Criteria System (C/SCSC), which has been specified for all DOD contracts for which the US government carries the risk since 1967. EVM is heavily used in the defense, nuclear, telecommunication and transport sectors and is closely linked to a development of organisational project management maturity.

Earned Value Management is a simple practical concept with significant benefits for project managers including:

An integrated view of the key elements of project status, planned cost, project progress and actual expenditure

The ability to rapidly determine the status of a project based on performance indexes

The ability to rapidly highlight work packages what are overspending and / or behind plan

An estimate of cost at completion and completion date

This course provides an introduction to the concepts, benefits, principles and processes of Earned Value Management. In particular, it will show how to implement Earned Value Management successfully, while defining the conditions that inhabit effective project performance management.

You will learn about Earned Value Management tools and techniques, from the creation of the project WBS right through to successful delivery of regular earned value reports and what those reports mean. Earned Value (EV) is a proven method for planning and managing project performance. In addition to establishing a consistent way of planning and estimating all types of project work efforts, it 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.

This course is based on the Association for Project Management guidance on Earned Value Management, and includes the associated Earned Value Management Foundation examination administrated by APM Group. It is aimed at all Project, Programme and Business Management Personnel who require an understanding of the principles, practices and issues of Earned Value Project Management

EVM is the best way to determine the real status of a project, it is a project control process based on a structured approach to planning, cost collection and performance management. It facilitates the integration of project scope, time and cost objectives and the establishment of a baseline plan for performance measurement.

EVM builds on, and therefore enforces good Project Management practice and underpins good corporate governance. EVM provides an objective measurement of what has been achieved on a project

EVM enables accurate forecasting

EVM provides project management information in a format that is easy for all stakeholders to understand and act upon

EVM is an Early Warning System that allows the timely identification and analysis of progress and cost issues and corrective actions to be indentified

EVM shows stakeholders whether they’re getting Value for Money

EVM enables detailed project comparisons across programmes

EVM can be used on a wide range of project sizes and complexity
