Why implementing advanced earned value management (EVM) techniques is worth it

Nowadays, managing the various requirements of a construction project can be tricky, especially since construction projects have become more complex. These challenges are highlighted by the fact that many projects don’t reach completion within budget or before the planned timeline.

In fact, according to a study by McKinsey & Company, 98% of all projects face delays or cost overruns, with the average increase in cost being 80% of the original value.

These statistics highlight the importance of adopting earned value project management software and techniques. By utilizing advanced EVM techniques, project teams can transform their project outcomes and stay ahead in the dynamic project management arena.

Utilize EVM data to accurately forecast project performance, such as the estimated cost at completion (EAC) and the estimated time to completion (ETC). This helps stakeholders make informed decisions about the project's future by providing a clear picture of the expected outcomes based on current performance trends.

Risk management

Integrate EVM data with risk management processes to identify, analyze, and mitigate risks proactively. Use EVM metrics to prioritize risks and allocate resources accordingly, ensuring that potential issues are addressed before they impact project outcomes. This allows for a more strategic risk management strategy.

Dashboards and visualizations

Dashboards and visualizations

Create intuitive dashboards and visualizations to present EVM data clearly and concisely. This helps stakeholders understand project performance and make data-driven decisions. Effective dashboards and visualizations can highlight variances, forecast future performance, and support communication with stakeholders.


Compare project performance against historical data, industry standards, or best practices to identify areas for improvement and drive continuous optimization. Benchmarking allows organizations to learn from past experiences and external benchmarks. This helps project teams continuously refine their EVM processes.
