Earned Value Management

Accurately understand project progress.

GK# 2845

Course Overview

This course teaches you the fundamentals of EVM so you can understand how to establish an effective project baseline and monitor project progress against known expectations.

Learn how EVM is integrated throughout the project life cycle. Practice the activities you go through to establish an effective baseline. Identify the critical data points that must be collected to analyze project progress. Learn to conduct trend analysis, calculate actual cost, and accurately project final cost, schedule, and performance variances. Understand how change impacts EVM and how approved changes can impact your original baseline. Identify the stakeholders who would benefit from EVM data and learn effective communication methods. Finally, review the differences of EVM in a corporate and federal environment.

Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.
