About This Class

How Healthy  is your project?

Earned value must be the most useful means of measuring the true health of a project known to man.

Yet so few project managers take advantage of the process.

Earned Value Analysis is a process for measuring and more importantly communicating the real status of a project, comparing:

  • The actual work complete,
  • The time taken to complete that work


  • The cost incurred to complete that work

All against  the baseline plan.

For practical project managers, the real reason for employing earned value analysis is to identify negative trends and more important, do something about them before they become a problem.

And to answer the question: “What Did We Get for the Money We Spent..?”
