Earned Value Management Workshop

Earned Value Management Workshop Training Course Description

Earned Value Management Workshop covers the bases of EVM and how to establish an effective project baseline and track the project progress against known expectations. We will teach you how EVM is incorporated within the project life cycle, and through the hands-on section of the workshop, you will get to exercise the activities to develop an effective baseline.

Earned Value Management Workshop allows you to determine the crucial data points that need to be gathered to assess project progress. You will learn to do trend analysis, calculate actual cost, and properly project final cost, schedule, and performance variances. You will understand how change affects EVM and how accepted changes can affect your primary baseline.

Through Earned Value Management Workshop, we will train you to recognize the stakeholders who would benefit from EVM data and learn efficient communication tools.

Learn About:

  • Importance of EVM
  • Impact of EVM in project management
  • Scope, schedule, and budget management
  • Creating baseline
  • Impact of EVM in project planning
  • Monitoring and controlling the baseline
  • Monitoring and controlling scope, schedule, and cost
  • Collecting data
  • Analyzing data
  • Anticipating final variances
  • Managing change and the impact to EVM
  • The difference between EVM in corporations and in the federal environment

TONEX EVM Workshop Format

  • 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
