Launch Trajectory – Why Integrating Definition and Execution Is Critical to Development Project, Program and Portfolio Success

It isn't easy to make exact copies of even a simple product, but at least you begin that effort knowing what "done" looks like. Development introduces a special kind of challenge – you only learn what "done" looks like at the end. The critical path for execution becomes dependent upon the critical path for definition and vice versa. The development path can be thought of as a part "altitude" you wish to attain and part "distance" you must travel to get there. We'll use this powerful analogy to explore why development outcomes vary so widely, why Agile methods are essential, and to help you plot the optimum launch trajectory for any given effort.

Earned Value and Earned Schedule Analysis Worksheet

by Wilko Reinck

This Excel sheet performs the calculation for earned value and earned schedule analysis. The forecast resulting from all KPIs [time-based SPI, CPI, CPI (internal), CPI (external) and WPI] is calculated based on the different forecast methods proposed by A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). The user can choose which method shall be used for each KPI.

Project Plan/WBS Sample Template

PREMIUM deliverable
by Jirí Skrivánek

This MS Excel template is an example of a small or middle-range project including a WBS, a simplified schedule and a summary of progress, which uses earned value management (EVM). The supporting article (Stop Being Scared of Spreadsheets!) encourages mainly junior PMs to play with the template and practice their knowledge on small projects. The article is not a step-by-step tutorial. Instead of detailed instructions, it discusses a few things that are crucial to start both managing projects and advanced work with spreadsheets.

Understanding Earned Value Analysis

by Andrew Makar, PMP

Earned value analysis is an excellent technique to assess project health and apply metrics to manage your project. Use this presentation to conduct an earned value orientation for your team members.

Scheduling: Walk Before You Run

by Guilherme Calôba, PMP

When it comes to scheduling, you cannot do advanced tasks before covering the basics. Most people want to do PERT analyses and critical path sensitivities, Monte Carlo simulations and applications of earned value techniques. Those tools can be helpful in providing guidance for better decision making, but a lot of ground must be covered first.

Tricking the System: How to Track Costs for Projects with Internal Resources

by Cory Adcock, PMP

It can sometimes get lost that there are a great number of projects initiated every day that will never have a formal budget associated to them. It is important that PMs and management not lose sight that even internal projects can benefit from the rigor of cost management processes and EVM principles.

Stop Being Scared of Spreadsheets!

by Jirí Skrivánek

Scared of spreadsheets? Don't be! They are a necessary and valuable tool in the project manager's arsenal. This article and its accompanying template are not a step-by-step tutorial. Instead of detailed instructions, it discusses a few things that are crucial to start both managing projects and completing advanced work with spreadsheets.

Earned Value Management in Agile Projects

by Marcos Saboya

The use of traditional empirical project management tools can be used in a simple way to manage and control project deadlines and costs without losing the flexibility of agility. In this article, we are going to mix a traditional technique with agile management using a simple practical example.

Earned Value: Monitoring Projects More Effectively

by Dr. Kenneth F. Smith, PMP

This article highlights why project financial assessment is so prone to errors during project monitoring, and illustrates a better practice for applying earned value to analyze and report project schedule and cost data quickly and accurately.

Earned Value Management Formulas...Illustrated

by David L. Rico, PMP

The whole point of Earned Value Management is to use past project performance measurements to depict the current standings and predict future efforts and resources required to complete the project goals. If you think in pictures, this illustrated formula will aid in your pursuit of certification or provide a refreshing perspective for veteran practitioners.

When Earned Value Meets Agile

by Madhu Velamati

The purpose of this article is to guide project managers in implementing an earned value management system by following ANSI/EIA-748 guidelines in a manner consistent with agile software development methodology.

Earned Value Management for Beginners

by Madhur Shah

Earned value management is a technique that integrates scope, cost and time to highlight how the project has done in the past and predict how it is expected to do in the future. This article discusses a few basic concepts of EVM and is useful for anyone looking to get started on this topic, as well as for candidates preparing for certification.

Project Workflow Framework: An Error-Free Project Management Environment

by Dan Epstein

The project workflow framework enables even the inexperienced project manager to use detailed step-by-step guidance, examples, tools and practical advice, freeing experienced project managers to manage programs and portfolios and promoting better use of project resources to reduce the cost of projects across all industries.

A Theoretical Approach to Traditional Project Metrics-Bridging the Gap Between Earned Value and Critical Path Project Management

by M.W. Settlemire, PMP

Since work completed from tasks not on the critical path does not affect the completion date of a project, it is important to differentiate tasks that are “critical” from those that are not in order to better monitor and control them. The project performance metric, critical path task index (CPTI), offers a more holistic view in terms of schedule performance for tasks directly related to schedule completion.
