Earned Value Management: from Gantt to Burn Charts

  • March 13, 2014 · 5:30 PM

Dear Agile Brisbanites,


For over a decade I have used charts to track and share progress of projects using Earned Value Management (EVM). In the past we used Gantt charts with MS Project but nowadays, in the Agile world, we mostly use Burnup or Burndown charts. In this Meetup I will share my experiences and we will work through a number of scenarios to understand the dynamics of these trend charts.


The following topics are covered:

• Define EVM and provide a brief history of it's use from Gantt to Burn charts as part of Empirical Process Control;

• Show how EVM is used in Burn charts;

• Work through a number of scenarios to understand the (different) dynamics of Burnup and Burndown charts.


Hope to see you on Thursday!
