Editorial Reviews

Review

An easy read for applying EVM, a powerful project control tool…This book will cause major renewed interest in EVM! --Neal Whitten, PMP, project management expert, author, speaker, consultant

Ray Stratton clearly and convincingly explains the tools and principles that will bring control and success to projects. --Aaron Smith, Editor, ProjectsAtWork.com

An effective approach for organizations to integrate EVM ...A valuable roadmap for long term growth and maturity. --David M. Treacy, former head of the Department of Energy's Earned Value Management Program

From the Author

Applying Earned Value Management is not hard. While the US Government and the ANSI 748 standards are demanding, valuable project cost and schedule performance data can be obtained using more simplified approaches to EVM.

The goal of this book is to educate the reader on the principles of EVM and then provide a roadmap of how EVM might at first be applied, followed by additional features that add accuracy and detail to the EVM data.

The simplified approaches will not result in an EVM system that meets ANSI 748 or US Government expectations. However, they do not preclude a project or organization from expanding their EVM system to meet ANSI 748 at a later date.

This book is NOT recommended for those who plan to take Earned Value Professional certification exam. The exam is based upon ANSI 748 and this book may mislead the reader. Visit Management Technologies for more information about the EVP certification and exam.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a useful and elementary explanation of Earned Value Management Systems (EVMS). The explanation is largely accurate and explains the topic in a clear fashion that is missing in most other EVMS books. However, there are several inaccuracies. Examples of three inaccuracies are provided in more detail below. Space does not permit an exhaustive explanation of every inaccuracy.

The authors' depiction of a 5 Level EVMS maturity model is an interesting concept. Generally speaking, the overall concept is fine and the progression through the levels is logical. However the content of the levels are where the inaccuracies occur. For example when explaining Earned Value Management (EVM) Level 3 which is ANSI/EIA-748 compliant, there are inaccuracies discussed which in fact will not result in ANSI/EIA-748 compliance. What the author explains as ANSI/EIA-748 compliant for an Estimate at Completion will not lead to ANSI compliance and is explained below.

The overall construction of the book is odd. The first section is an explanation of elementary EVMS followed by requirements of an EVMS system and concludes with a discussion on the impediments to EVMS implementation. Section 2 begins by explaining the need for a maturity model and then explains each of the 5 EVM maturity levels. The first section is largely an elementary discussion of EVMS and the second section is an intermediate to advanced discussion of the elements composing the various maturity levels. A reader who requires such basic EVMS explanations as those provided in section 1, cannot be expected to follow all the nuances and ideas in section two. It is this reviewers' opinion that anyone exploring maturity models would possess a firm grasp on the basics of the subject.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first half of this book rates 5 stars for the explanation of Earned Value and particularly the section on Earned Schedule Management which is not widely known or practiced. The second half was not as good or of as much value to me but I definitely recommend the book for the first half.
