Deviation from the agreed-upon schedule can have major implications for the project as a whole. This video describes how to calculate Schedule Variance using a real-world example.

Schedule Variance may be calculated as part of a Variance Analysis Report or while monitoring an existing contract’s performance.

Top Management Use of Earned Value Data

by Humphreys & Associates on April 4, 2022

Top management relies on performance measurement data to make informed decisions about whether a project is worth undertaking and how much money should be allocated to it. This is done by examining trends in performance data over time and benchmarking the organization against others. Additionally, top management uses performance measurement data to assess the effectiveness of their own interventions to improve organizational performance.

Project complexity is increasing and costs are soaring. Despite this, top management remains ever vigilant in their pursuit of ensuring that taxpayer money is being well spent on government projects. In this lesson, we will explore how all performance measurement data are used by top management to make informed decisions about government projects. Stay tuned!
