Earned Value Management Training Bootcamp

Earned Value Management Training Bootcamp Course Description

Earned Value Management Training Bootcamp helps you interpret the meaning behind the data, identify potential expenses, define proper schedule, use the proper tools and techniques to compare actual work accomplished against baseline schedules and cost, and finally determine early warning signs to receive effective understanding into potential risk areas to plan ahead.

Earned Value Management Training

Recognize what must be done to successfully implement and use earned value management in your organization to evaluate internal and contractor performance. Earned Value Management Training Bootcamp teaches you how to use Earned value management (EVM) as a powerful tool for managing big, critical projects and programs. You will be introduced to project management best practices.

As obligated by the U.S. government’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB), earned value management is a critical factor of capital planning and investment control. If applied properly, earned value enables organizations to track the project plan, actual work, and work-completed value to identify if the project is on-track. Earned value monitors how much budget and time should have been spent compared to the amount of work completed.

TONEX Bootcamp Features

  • It’s fun, interactive, and dynamic
  • It’s combined of theory and practice
  • The theoretical part is delivered in the form of communicating presentations
  • The practical section include labs, individual/small group activities, and hands-on workshops
  • Participants can bring in their own organizational projects to work on during the hands-on sessions, but they also can use the real-world cases provided by our instructors

Audience

Earned Value Management Training Bootcamp is a 4-day course designed for:

  • Senior and mid-level managers
  • Team managers
  • Project managers
  • Executives
  • Project managers
  • IT project managers
  • Project coordinators
  • Project analysts
  • Project leaders
  • Senior project managers
  • Team leaders
  • Product managers
  • Program managers.
  • All individuals at any level of an organization who are involved in reviewing key project documents, project evaluation, and project control

Learning Objectives

Upon the completion of Earned Value Management Training Bootcamp, the attendees are able to:

  • Outline key notions of EVM
