e-Documents

The world of business is moving increasingly towards storing and exchanging documentation almost exclusively in electronic formats. While document management tools solve many problems typically found in paper-based systems, they also introduce a suite of new issues and challenges.

Easy EVM Published

Easy EVM – Implementing Earned Value Management using ISO 21508:2018 is the first of a short series of books we are working on.

Easy EVM is a self-paced course-in-a-book, supported by Mosaic Project Services Pty Ltd. As part of the course, all trainees working through the materials are welcome to email Mosaic with any questions or requests for additional information they may have at any time. We will attempt to answer all emails within 24 Hrs of receipt. The book also designed to act as a reference and practice guide for people implementing EVM, and contains numerous links to additional resources.

The purpose of this ‘course-in-a-book’ is to provide practical guidance to people, and organizations, involved in either implementing an earned value management system, or using information created by an earned value management system. It provides guidance on concepts, responsibilities, integration, and processes, for the implementation and use of earned value management based on ISO 21508: Earned Value Management in Project and Programme Management; obtaining a copy of the International Standard is recommended, but not essential, to make effective use of this course.

Easy EVM, and ISO21508, are compatible with PMI’s The Standard for Earned Value Management (ANSI/PMI 19-006-2019).

The book is divided into five sections, each section includes guidance on an aspect of EVM, references, and a set of 20 questions; with the answers in Section 6. Open the Book2Look preview to see the full table of contents, sample pages, and sample questions & answers.
