Earned Value Management (EVM) can be one of the most useful tools to monitor and control the progress of our projects. However, the collection, analysis, presentation and explanation of the data can be a daunting task. The lower the project management maturity of an organization the more this is true. A project manager must always be asking if the effort going into any activity is worth the outcome being attained.  But what is it that we really learn from EVM? The project manager needs to understand the information that they can attain from the data presented by the EVM methodology. For a resource heavy project, for example IT, some of the most valuable information that can be attained can be using a simple and easy to use form of earned value.

In this sharing session we will learn from one another including a method to be presented by the session leader. Come prepared to share your good or bad experiences or just your understanding of EVM from your studies.
