Earned Value Management (EVM) Applied to Large IT Projects

Feb 18, 2021 12:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Earned Value Management (EVM) is essential to project success. It is used extensively in the Department of Defense (DOD) and construction industries but not in the IT industry. This webinar focuses on applying EVM to large IT projects. It will present: a brief overview of the EVM fundamentals; why EVM is not used on large IT projects; how to create a baseline for the project; what a rolling wave is and how to use it; and the benefits of using EVM on large IT projects.

April 08, 2020 | 61:10 | Views: 9,601 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.32 / 5

The four knowledge cornerstones of project risk management are: Project Management(how to run a project); Earned Value Management (how to measure project performance); Risk Management (how to identify and mitigate risks); Subcontract management (how to manage subcontractors). Project risk management is essential today and for future work challenges to manage a successful project. This webinar focuses on earned value management, the second knowledge cornerstone.

Painting by Numbers: Understanding Earned Benefit-Value from a Budget View to Benefit Focus

Rather than simply delivering a quality product, project managers are now expected to take responsibility for ensuring the benefits that the product should provide. Although expectations have moved on, the corresponding tools have not kept pace. This webinar presents a novel and powerful framework by which to extend existing tools into the benefits-delivery space.

This webinar provides an introduction to the extension of the Earned Value Management (EVM) framework to the area of benefits realization management (BRM). The "third musketeer" is a new indicator, Realization Performance Indicator (RPI), which complements the existing CPI and SPI.

The Fast, Flexible and Fact based Front End: Examining Discovery the Not So Fuzzy Front End of Innovation

Donald G. Reinertsen was at Booz Allen Hamilton when he coined the term “Fuzzy Front End” in an article for PMI in the 1980’s. He did so because he thought there was something going on up there at the beginning of New Product Development but it was fuzzy. I interviewed him for an article a few years later. By then he had come to dislike the term, “Fuzzy Front End”. He felt that, after more study, there were a number of tools and processes in place (some for decades), that made the front end into a repeatable process. Together we changed the original premise to “Fuzzy Logic” for the article. That concept of Fuzzy Logic (sampling the environment, the market, technology, the competition, etc.) became the basic concept behind this important discovery stage and the basis for many popular branded processes like Hunting for Hunting Grounds™. Never mind Reinertsen’s new thinking, the term “Fuzzy Front End” was catching on by the mid-90’s in the New Product Development community and perpetuated the myth of this stage as somewhat mystical. This webinar will attempt to demystify the new product discovery.

The Earned Value Budget Square

by Vladimir Malinovskiy

The article is devoted to the underlying mathematical concepts of earned value: linear function, Cartesian coordinates and tangent. The EV visualization named “budget square” is derived from these concepts—and helps us master the earned value concept for both certification and practical needs.

Staying Sustainable After Launch

by Carleton Chinner

Most projects don't end with their launch date—they have an active lifespan and eventual decommissioning. Do you know what the true end-to-end cost of your project is?

The Integration of Agile and EVM

by Mario Coquillat

When agile practices are implemented for the first time in a waterfall environment, more predictive techniques like earned value management (EVM) will need to be integrated. Here, a practitioner looks at two sprint examples to explain how this approach works.

La Integración de Agile y EVM

by Mario Coquillat

Cuando se implementan prácticas ágiles por primera vez en un entorno de cascada, se deberán integrar más técnicas predictivas como la gestión del valor ganado (EVM). Aquí, un profesional observa dos ejemplos de sprint para explicar cómo funciona este enfoque.

How to Do Better, Cheaper, Sooner

by Donald Charles Wynes

Are you looking beyond individual departments and focusing on the value created in the full series of activities they perform to create and deliver their product? Here’s the story of one PM who was willing to step beyond her role to move the focus of “better, cheaper, sooner” to the whole chain of work her firm delivered to its customer.

Topic Teasers Vol. 112: PMBOK® Guide—Sixth Edition New Earned Schedule Theory

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: One of my colleagues told me that they are changing the earned value management (EVM) formulas. We have many projects in progress, with automated charts and spreadsheets configured with the current calculations I was taught to use in my Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification exam prep training. Is this true that the math is being altered by PMI?

The Dynamic Progress Method: A New Alternative to the Critical Path Method (Japanese Translation)

by J. Chris White

クリティカル・パス・メソッド(CPM)が1950年代に導入されたので、プロジェクト見積もりと計画における最新のイノベーションについて学びましょう。その当時CPMは大幅に改善されましたが、しかし今では現在の単純化されたCPMのアプローチではとても不十分です。今日のプロジェクトはより大規模で複雑化しており、より厳密なアプローチが求められています。CPMを使うことにより、リソースはタスク期間と切り離され、現実的なプロジェクト計画を立案することを困難または不可能にします。CPMでは「期間」はインプットです。

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.
