Controlling Projects with Earned Value Management - Webinar

Overview

Managing project control with Earned Value Management

Standard approaches state that there are four management phases within a project: initiation, definition, execution and closure. In managing project control, it is during execution that we monitor project progress at pre-defined control points to ensure that we are on track and to forecast overruns if variances have emerged.

Earned Value Management (EVM) is an advanced technique to manage control. This is positioned as a key controlling approach by the Project Management Institute (PMI©) and as such is an important consideration when preparing for the Project Management Professional (PMP©) examination. Regardless of whether you intend to sit this exam or apply this EVM in your project environment, it is well worth exploring this technique as it relies on a clear overall understanding of the fundamentals of project planning and control. This webinar highlights the discipline of having project plan baselines (scope, time and cost) to support project control. It also enables delegates to work with suppliers and customers who may use this approach to control their projects.
