This series of workshops are designed to provide executives and practitioners with an understanding of the power of using Earned Value as an effective 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. What’s needed is an appreciation of the terms used and the value of the information created by the tools. Workshops are available in half-day, one-day and two-day formats, either as virtual presentations (world-wide), or face-to-face in Australia.
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.
