Define the following:

  • How are SV and CV related to one another? Why are these terms important?
  • What are the major advantages of using earned value metrics to understand the effectiveness of project performance? What do you perceive are its disadvantages?
  • What are the challenges associated with obtaining earned value metrics? What can you do as a project manager to minimize the challenges?
  • What are your recommendations given the information above?

Lastly, conclude with a description of the value of earned value management to an organization.

Your paper should meet the following requirements:

  • Be at least 3 pages in length.
  • Be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA.
