Show notes: Earned Value Management (EVM) is a systematic approach to the integration and measurement of cost, schedule, and scope accomplishments on a project or task. We are starting with an introduction to EVM in which you will get a basic overview of how it came to be, how it works and we will discuss its benefits and shortcomings. We also have some great helpful resources, announcements for several PM events around the globe and you can hear a review of a new project management related podcast called The Apprenti Podcast.
