Triunity Engineering Reveals How to Implement Earned Value Management

Earned value, a critical dimension of the execution of large and complex projects, provides an integrated view of progress that enables deeper project and program analysis and faster more intelligent decision-making. With evolving government standards and security laws increasing pressure to adopt stringent cost and earned-value standards, many organizations today recognize the need to incorporate comprehensive cost management and earned-value analysis capabilities into their project portfolio/program management systems. Yet, many struggle with doing it successfully and efficiently. In this session, Sean VonFeldt will reveal:
  • Why Earned Value Management (EVM) is critical to ensuring your project is successful
  • How he successfully implemented EVM at Denver RTD FasTracks – an award winning $6.5 billion comprehensive transit expansion program to build 140 miles of new commuter rail and bus rapid transit
  • Best practices for EVM analysis and reporting (including how it helps manage/report on schedule, budget, cost, scope changes and project risk)
  • How EVM has evolved as an enterprise level analysis tool since Sean first implemented the methodology at London Underground
  • How today’s tools are making EVM more powerful than ever
