This workshop is designed to provide students with an understanding of the power of using Earned Value as a practical project control and monitoring technique to deliver added value and insight from their overall project control process. The approach adopted is to assume everyone uses some form of software for EV, therefore rote learning of the formulae is pointless, the software gets this correct (conversely, CAPM and PMI-SP training has to cover the doing the EV calculations for the respective exams). What’s needed is an appreciation of the terms used, the purpose of the calculations, and the value of the information created by the tools.
At the end of the course, trainees will understand the power of using Earned Value as a practical control and monitoring technique designed to provide added value and insight to their overall project control process and appreciate the steps necessary to implement an effective EV system in their organization.
Who should attend: Project and program managers, PMO staff, project controls staff and engineers, schedulers and project team members.
Attendees will be provided with comprehensive course notes and references to assist in the implementation of EVM in their businesses.
This workshop is available in half-day, one and two-day options:
Mosaic's EV courses are designed to provide students with an understanding of the power of using Earned Value as a practical control and monitoring technique to deliver added value and insight from their overall project control process. The courses are based on a number of key standards/systems :
Earned Value Business Management - 1 day Intensive Workshop: This workshop is designed for Business Managers and planners moving to introduce Earned Value Business Management into an organisation. Using Earned Value techniques in a practical business oriented manner adds significant additional information and power to project control process. This course outlines the techniques and processes needed to implement EVBM in an effective and practical manner.
1/2 day Overview: A condensed version of this workshop can be presented as a half-day overview, or as an executive briefing session. See more on Mosaic's Executive Briefings.
Earned Value Business Management - 2 day in-house practical workshop: Designed for people with limited Earned Value and scheduling training (eg staff in a new project office or in a business unit introducing project management for the first time). In addition to the 1 day overview, the 2 days of tuition allows time to introduce trainees to the calculations, concepts and processes involved in developing an effective Earned Value control process. At its conclusion, trainees will have a solid grounding in the processes and benefits of effective Earned Value control processes.
This course works through the basic techniques and processes needed to implement EVBM in an effective and practical manner. The course structure is based on the 1-Day outline above with additional time spent on the following aspects:
The 2 Day coursework is customized to to meet client requirements and may use a 'real' example of the projects to be included in the organizations EV system.
Also available as a short Executive
