Abstract: Today, more than ever before,
the pressure on project participants to deliver more with less resources
on a tightly constrained schedule, demands the use of an earned value based
management process. However, there is a widespread perception in
the industry that implementing an earned value based system will bring
an added degree of bureaucracy and paperwork that may outweigh the benefits
derived from it.
This presentation will address a few streamlined
approaches to get the most out of implementing earned value on both small
as well as large projects. It will also examine different elements
that play an important role in determining how effective earned value will
be for you in your particular application. The speaker will also
discuss a case study to expose some of the dangers and pitfalls of the
"strict" interpretation of variance data related to earned value.
