What is Earned Value?

Earned Value (EV) is a calculation that allows you to measure the amount of work actually performed on a project beyond the basic review of cost and schedule reports. EV provides a method that permits the project to be measured by progress achieved. EV calculations provide accurate data needed to forecast a project’s total cost and date of completion.

WhY is this course so important?

How do know precisely whether or not a project is on the path to success if you don't have any benchmarking tools in place? This course introduces you to several powerful performance metrics and analytical tools that can help you determine whether project goals and objectives are being met.

If a project falls off target, the project leader is responsible for maintaining a tight focus on tasks that add to the value of a project, and establishing a framework for keeping team members and other stakeholders aligned with project objectives.
