Controlling the Project Cost, in practice
To get the project finished under budget, we need to measure cost performance on each review date. Earned Value Management (EVM), is the ANSI 748 standard method to measure the project cost performance objectively. According to EVM standard, as of each status date, three measures are enough to analyze the project cost performance. Professional project managers can practice EVM effectively with PMPeople.
Practicing the PMBOK® Guide 7th Edition with PMPeople
PMPeople can be seen as the “conveyor belt” to move gears of professional project management in the Project Economy: As a project manager, I can follow most of the 12 principles just updating the project data in PMPeople.

Controlling Projects Performance
