PS 08 – EVM and Personal Productivity 

Earned value management involves more than setting processes and tools in place as part of the integrated management system.  Considerations must also be given to the human element of EVM – how can we improve how people use the system?  Can we help people improve their productivity when using an EVM system?  What can we learn from personal productivity systems?  How can I improve my own productivity?  Surprisingly, there are similarities that can be uncovered between the basic concepts of EVM and achieving personal productivity.  This presentation will break new ground by exploring both the similarities and differences and the cross pollination of basic concepts.  This exploration will shed new light on how we can improve the human element of EVM by applying certain productivity principles. Likewise, basic EVM concepts can help us improve our own personal productivity at work, at home, and all aspects of life.
