Earned schedule white paper

Added to your Saved Content Go to my Saved Content

This new white paper produced by the APMs Earned Value SIG introduces a new dimension of Earned Value. It addresses the issue that is seen by some as the Achilles heel of Earned Value; the lack of a formal time-based calculation. In doing this, it enhances the Earned Value process and practice and does so without additional information or process burden. The concept, history, usage and benefits are covered along with a comparison of Earned Schedule to the classical Earned Value calculations and how they contribute towards making more informed decisions on your projects.

The paper can be downloaded below.

As a white paper this does not necessarily represent the views of APM and it designed to stimulate discussion and interest in the subject.

    Interestingly this concept has been one of the unofficial topics in the APMP for many years. This was because one of the accreditation assessors for the course though it was an important topic and insisted that the training providers covered it as part of the course.  However I am not sure it is appropriate for a foundation level qualification in project management. What do you think?
