We can easily look at a project
schedule and quickly determine if we are ahead or behind of the plan. We can
make a similar inference by examining the project budget and estimate if we
have overspent or underspent, but do these two items by themselves tell the
full and true story? What ambiguity exists in using these disconnected data
points? Earned value management (EVM) integrates schedule and budget to tell us
if what we are getting is what we are paying for. A beginning project manager
needs to be at least familiar with EVM. Conduct research in the Ashford
University Library or on YouTube and provide a citation or link to a short
article or video that explains the basics of EVM. Summarize the findings of the
article or video. Each class member is expected to supply a unique source.
