Projects often involve large investments of money so its important that performance problems can be quickly identified and corrected.
Earned Value Management is a tried and proven technique for integrating and controlling project scope, risk, cost and schedule to improve project communication and performance management. Sometimes referred to as the performance management of projects, it provides a single source of the truth for project progress and forecasts and can be applied to any project management methodology including agile.
This webinar will introduce you to the earned value management technique and explain the simple processes to implement this valuable methodology on your projects.
