Course Overview

We specialise in demonstrating how to use EVM to improve project control, not just to providing internal or external reporting.  The central concepts of EVM are relatively simple. However, when organisations first implement the method, it often highlights (sometimes significant) issues or gaps in the project management processes, rather than producing valuable data.


Earned value management is a management methodology for integrating scope, schedule, and resources for objectively
measuring project performance, progress and forecasting the project outcome.


The standard uses the term project scope to mean the work that must be performed to deliver a product, service or result with the specified features and functions. EVM can play a crucial role in answering management questions that are critical to the success of every project such as:

  • Are we delivering more or less work than planned?

  • When is the project likely to be completed?

  • Are we currently over or under budget?

  • What is the remaining work likely to cost?

  • What Is the entire project likely to cost?

  • How much will we be over or under budget at the end of the project?

  • What is driving the significant cost and/or schedule
