Speaker:
Roger Joby

A long-standing challenge in IT project management has been the lack of proper communication of the state of health of a development project by IT specialists to other stakeholders. Steve Wake will argue that use of Earned Value concepts provides management with the best available method to assure the accuracy of the project information being published for use up and down the organisation.

You are always vulnerable to uninformed challenge if you are not sure of your project status. Solid, accurate project data should be the foundation of all our management conversations. Otherwise your project could be a house built on sand.

The use of Earned Value has sometimes not been adopted because of a perception it is incompatible with agile project approaches, but Steve will show how is not the case.
