There is a tremendous push in the last couple of years to use Agile methodologies along with Earned Value (EVM), or at least investigate how the two methodologies can be used together.
If you Google Agile and EVM, you will find many articles explaining exactly how to do this.But does it really make sense to do this?
Are there any real examples of people managing Agile projects who are also using EVM effectively? If the two approaches are at odds with each other, is one methodology better than another for most projects, and to be preferred? These questions and topics will be explored in this presentation.
Event requires registration.
