Abstract:

Defence, government, and commercial organisations have used earned value management EVM techniques for years - with varying degrees of success. The Australian Ministry of Defence has required its suppliers use EVM for decades and industry has complied some organisations use EVM to manage the project internal-looking and to coordinate effectively with stakeholders external-looking others find little value, bogging down in numbers, reporting, and bureaucracy. This paper presents the work of an organisation with which I have worked Fujitsu Australia Ltd, in Canberra. They have embraced EVM enhancing relationships with customers and throughout the entire team. This presentation contains little new theory for those using EVM effectively today. The key value of Fujitsus work comes in how they have humanised EVM - including using practical plain English for the EVM code-words - and made it accessible - personal - to all stakeholders.
