What is Earned Value Management (EVM)?
EVM is a project management methodology for measuring project progress in an objective way – with calculations of time, cost and scope – in order to keep projects on track. Thanks to an accurate assessment of the project’s performance, appropriate corrective actions can be undertaken in a timely manner should the project be in danger of failing.
