Earned Value Management System 

Thinking about bidding on Government or Department of Defense (DoD) contracts? Many Request for Proposals (RFP) now require that contractors have an Earned Value Management System (EVMS) in place or a plan to use one as their management control tool. Simply put, Earned Value Management (EVM) is a set of good business practices and tools for managing a project’s life cycle as well as forecasting and controlling future performance. Our highly acclaimed seminar will provide you with a clear picture of what it takes to implement an effective EVMS that meets your customer’s requirements.

During this one-day seminar, we show you how EVM principles can be successfully applied on Government, Department of Defense, or commercial programs and used to build your organization’s EVMS capability. We’ll guide you through each stage of running an effective EVMS that meets U.S. Government requirements, as outlined in the American National Standards Institute/Electronic Industries Alliance Standard 748, Earned Value Management Systems (ANSI/EIA-748).
