Under the New Acquisition Reform rules, the Program Manager’s tools for controlling a program’s cost and schedule have undergone significant changes. The government’s continual focus is to devise more efficient ways to implement Earned Value Management. Industry standards have replaced DoD C/SCSC (Cost/Schedule Control Systems Criteria) and DoD requires Earned Value Management (EVM) on all projects for both contracted work as well as in-house efforts.

EVM is an essential technique for integrating technical, schedule, quality and cost risk identification minimization and management into a cohesive process to effectively manage and improve performance on complex projects. Especially designed for Program Managers, Cost/Price Analysts, Engineers and Engineering Managers, Production Managers, and Project/Program Managers, this important seminar teaches the skills to plan, measure and more effectively manage the performance of projects from initiation until close-out. You will master the practical tools and techniques needed to improve the quality, cost and schedule performance of almost any project, regardless of size, industry, or technology. An extensive series of practical team exercises supplement the presentations to crystallize the learning experience, giving attendees the skills they need for effective day-to-day project management.

Attend and learn how to develop EVM techniques that are essential for successfully managing your project’s scope, schedule and budget.
