Project Management

Earned Value Management (EVM) Applied to Large IT Project

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)
