Applying Earned Value Management to Testing

Add to calendar

Project managers have two main goals when it comes to their projects: deliver on time, and deliver within the budget. To track progress against these two objectives, the project management profession has developed a technique called earned value management (EVM). This method allows you to objectively measure project performance, predict cost and time, and evaluate the general health of a project. Join Bernd Bornhausen as he shares his experience with applying EVM to testing and how it changed his approach to reporting the test status of his projects. Bernd provides real-life examples and showcases how EVM for testing can be implemented in your organization. Learn what earned value management means, how you can use it on your testing projects, and the positive impact it can have on your relationship with the project management team.
