Why Use Earned Value Techniques?

Earned Value management is one of those key concepts that you had to learn in order to pass your PMP® Exam.  Earned value is used on many government projects but hasn’t gained support in commercial or non-profit organizations.

Most organizations don’t utilize this tool because it is either too administratively burdensome, or they just don’t understand it.

In our first webinar, we will review the basics of earned value management to deepen your understanding of what it means and why this tool is so important for evaluating project performance.

This webinar Diane Buckley Altwies (LinkedIn profile) CEO of Core Performance Concepts will give an overview of the application of earned value to project management and how it can help get projects under control.

Who should attend:

  • Project managers, Portfolio managers,
  • Project team members, Project Leads,
  • Project sponsors & function/business unit managers,
  • Subject Matter Experts, Business Analysts, Scheduling Specialists and ….
  • Other business stakeholders.
