About the course

APMG International Earned Value™ is a certification based on best practices of project management professionals which focuses on how to measure project performance and progress objectively and effectively. The techniques of Earned Value Management (EVM) have become widely accepted in the public and private sectors as a means for project managers to both measure actual project performance as well as to predict future performance.  EVM provides for seamless integration of project scope, time and cost objectives and the establishment of a baseline plan for performance measurement. It facilitates the creation of accurate forecasts and reports to satisfy the requirements of governance and is also an important tool in stakeholder management in providing a baseline for performance management and demonstrating to stakeholders they are receiving value for money.

As a project control process based on a structured approach to planning, cost collection and performance measurement, the discipline is applicable to projects of all sizes across a wide range of industries.
