What you'll learn in this project management training:

Project performance measurement is critical to successful project management. Earned Value Management(EVM)helps to monitor the health and status of a project and hence is an integral part of project management. This workshop will help you fully integrate the principles and fundamentals of EVM in a simple and practical approach.

Risks are a part of any project, but if not contained it may result in cost and schedule overruns thus affecting the scope of the project. More than 70% of projects worldwide get into schedule delays and cost overrun and fail causing severe loss to the organization and the global economy.  

EVM techniques are widely-practiced across organizations to mitigate schedule and cost risks. Using EVM, project teams are able to create a measurable project baseline by estimating and quantifying the value of work to be achieved at different milestones of the project schedule. This provides them a proven technique for measuring actual work accomplished and actual money being spent by those milestones, and the ability for effective calculation of schedule and cost variances. 

This further enables them to make meaningful forecasts for the projects and programs. This is an important aspect of project management that helps project managers reduce risk and increase the chances of project success.

This workshop will help you go from basic to advanced concepts of EVM and understand how to use it to deliver successful projects. The experiential course includes industry case studies and practical work that will help you understand how EVM is used in real world situations. EVM experts can earn as high as $109,599 on an average.With projects getting more complex with increased chances of failure, this expertise will be in much demand the world over.

What You Will Learn:

By the end of this course, you will:
  • Facilitate the integration of project scope, time and cost objectives
  • Establish a baseline plan for performance measurement (Performance Measurement Baseline – PMB)
  • Understand the EVM data (PV, EV, AC, BAC, SPI, CPI, EAC, TCPI)
  • Provide an objective measurement of project status in relation to cost, scope and timescales
  • Enable accurate forecasting for projects and programmes
  • Enable detailed project comparisons across programmes
  • Demonstrate to stakeholders whether or not they are getting value for money
  • Make suggestions to stakeholders as to how project value can be increased
Target Audience: The idea audience for this course would be project, program and portfolio managers.

Prerequisite: The attendees need to have some prior experience of planning of projects and programs.
