Advanced Earned Value for Federal Government Project Managers helps you direct and manage EVM implementation across the program life cycle and build up extensive EVM capabilities to be applied to large, complex projects/programs.

This course focuses on the senior-level business, cost, and financial management competency, as defined by the latest FAC-P/PM policy, and will help you harness the power of EVM to control your programs. By the end of the course, you will be confident indicating work progress in a more objective way within and across projects and properly relate cost, schedule, and technical accomplishments. The course also will enable you to create and utilize a realistic performance measurement baseline (PMB), and provide management with information at a practical level. Finally, as part of the course activities, you will prepare an action plan to create immediate impact on your control of projects.
