Sets out to examine earned value management (EVM), a project management technique that relates resource planning to schedules, technical costs and schedule requirements.
Provides an example of how EVM can be implemented in a data warehouse project and how it can be used as a tool to diagnose and solve problems.
EVM is based on the belief that the value of the project increases as tasks are completed and therefore the earned value of a project is a measure of the real progress of that project.
Offers a significant analysis of EVM, its benefits and pitfalls.
