Earned Value Management (EVM) - Courses, Colleges and Careers

Earned Value Management (EVM) is a process that helps to analyse, plan, collect the cost & measure the performance of a project. This method is capable in integrating scope, schedule and cost in one single system. When applied systematically, Earned Value Management (EVM) offers early warnings about performance difficulties. In addition, Earned Value Management (EVM) also promises to make better the project scope, prevent scope sneak, communicate project to stakeholder in the company and keep working group dedicated for attaining progress.

Earned Value Management (EVM) has its drawbacks too, for example, EVM can show a project under budget, or scope completely executed, while in practical terms there may a possibility exist of unhappy customers or an unsuccessful project. Managers can not fully depend on EVM; it’s just another tool of project manager’s toolbox. By extrapolating from the amount of work already put into the project, the project managers can get an estimate on how much resources the project will have used at completion.
