Vincent -

Forecasting on projects following agile delivery practices such as letting past iteration/sprint velocity determine when the team will complete a release or product backlog is a modified approach to EV which is practiced on many projects.

I've rarely seen pure EVA & variance analysis (to use the PMBOK v6 terms :-) ) used in the companies I've supported as they lack the work package level cost reporting and/or work decomposition discipline needed to practice it accurately.

Similar to Vincent - not used as outline in PMBok, we typically use other models that the finance gods live eat and die by which aligns more closely to their business needs. the concepts are there just the process is different.

I have been doing IT project management for over twenty years, Vincent. We definitely use the EVM indices (CPI and SVI) to see if we are off track. EAC is not used very much.

"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy."
