Fundamentals of Earned Value Management Training

Fundamentals of Earned Value Management Training Course Description

Fundamentals of Earned Value Management Training teaches you how to analyze a project’s performance in terms of its baseline. We will also teach you how to track the project progress via Earned Value Management (EVM). Fundamentals of Earned Value Management will provide you a strong understanding of the EVM principals and how to use them in everyday project situations, by using software models and other practical tools.
