What is EVM®?

Earned Value Management (EVM) certification is a professionally structured course of study for individuals and organizations to objectively measure performance and project using project management techniques. Candidates are trained and certified in the ability to plan for, forecast and control project performance and problems.

The Earned Value Management is an accepted tool for integrating projects, measuring time and budgetary expectations and establishing plans to ensure and control project progress. The certification will provide candidates with knowledge of earned value management tools and techniques, and how to apply them in defined projects.

EVM® Accreditation

Harrybaker training Institute is fully accredited to train individuals and organizations on EVM by APMG, the licensed exam Institute. Harrybaker training Institute ensures that EVM training is delivered with high standards.

History of EVM®

The history of EVM can be traced to 1966 when it was introduced as a financial analysis and project management approach in the United States. It was applied first by the US Air Force, and Department of Defense and used in procurement programs. The US Department of Defense established a criterion based approach that contained 32 guidelines in 5 sections that define the EVM methodology.

The EVM was adopted in the architectural and engineering industry in 1976 as a project management methodology, and since then the technique has been taught and applied in project management. It has been used in diverse programs because it provides insight on performance measurement, cost determination and schedule requirements for projects.
