REAL WORLD EARNED VALUE: REALIZE THE BENEFITS - FORGET THE BUREAUCRACY
One of the world’s most recognized experts on achieving Value-Added Earned Value applications on real world projects faced with real world constraints, will lead students through approaches and techniques proven during more than 23 years of hands-on EV use. This depth of experience has come in a wide variety of organizational types on every conceivable type project.
Project management professionals attending this presentation will learn why they shouldn’t wait for someone to tell them they have to use Earned Value. The benefits of EV are obvious AND substantial. The professional responsibility of today’s PM pro is to establish and capitalize on this powerful concept using simple approaches that don’t require sophisticated organizational information and accounting systems or complex procedures. In the beginning, Earned Value was known as C/SCSC. In 1973, Lee R. Lambert decided this acronym should actually represent Common/Sense Cost Schedule Comparisons. Since then he has developed Validated Systems, trained thousands of users and written an critically acclaimed book on the topic.
This powerful presentation will focus on helping PM professionals understand and use the fundamental Earned Value concepts on any project—any size and/or any duration—by implementing simple, easy-to-understand methods. They will learn how to take control of their ability to Add Value to your project management contribution by using Earned Value concepts to create a realistic, fact-based, view of their project’s current and projected status.
