Earned Value Management for Project Performance Measurement



The Earned Value Management for Project Performance Measurement program is a training program designed to provide professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to utilize Earned Value Management (EVM) techniques for project performance evaluation. By applying EVM principles, participants can enhance project forecasting, identify deviations from planned performance, and implement corrective actions to ensure project success since EVM is considered to be one of the most powerful and productive concepts utilized in managing today’s complex projects in private, commercial, or government environments.

Program Objectives:

At the end of this program the participants will be able to:

  • Obtain knowledge in understanding and using an effective performance management system in managing technical projects effectively.

  • Manage projects using a proven, effective performance measurement technique.

  • Work with clients to define project objectives and develop a project plan and put it into action.

  • Make project decisions concerning scope, cost and schedule parameters faster, more effectively and more confidently.

  • Stay on top of schedules, budgets, workloads, and human resources issues and delegate practically and fairly.

  • Learn to avoid the pitfalls of project management by quickly identifying potential project risks and mitigate them as early as possible.
