Federal agencies are under considerable pressure from Congress, oversight bodies and watchdog groups to spend their appropriated funds wisely and efficiently. During the execution of any project, however, cost overruns and delays are common, leading to higher costs and less effective or timely solutions.
The Agile Earned Value Management (A-EVM) approach to project management is a potential solution to mitigate those risks. A-EVM provides effective scope variance analysis, comprehensive performance reporting, and predictability that help keep programs on time and on budget.
Unlike traditional EVM, in A-EVM, we use Agile framework artifacts as inputs to the values in traditional EVM calculations. We express value delivery in traditional EVM metrics. CGI experts translate traditional Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Earned Value Management concepts to fit an Agile Delivery Framework.
