July 31 – Webinar (PMI) – Utilizing EVM to Combat Corruption in International Development

23 juil

PMI’s International Development CoP with Suffyan Bashir, PMP

31 July 2014 • 7-8 AM EDT (13:00 CET/France)

management de la valeur acquiseMultilateral and international development organizations have been heavily criticized by governments and donors for not realizing expectations due to lack of accountability leading to corrupt practices, waste of resources, bureaucracy and poor service delivery. This trend has continued to plague development in the third world for decades, according to evaluations conducted on previous projects and programmes.

Many of the existing programming and monitoring tools used by development organizations do not have built-in mechanisms for highlighting shortcomings, discrepancies and financial irregularities and hence cannot effectively expose mismanagement or corrupt practices.

Although Earned Value (EV) has been utilized mainly as a performance measurement tool in the corporate world, it may possibly be employed in development programmes as a tool for accountability and highighting mismanagement of financial resources. The first challenge will be to identify and establish the appropriate EV tools that can be employed within the context of development programmes bearing in mind that development results and outcomes are not expressed as benefits in financial terms. We will then explore a couple of scenarios whereby I will demonstrate how to apply EV in monitoring and controlling development projects to ensure better accountability of project team members while also ensuring funds are not misused.

It is important to recognize that EV alone will not be sufficient to resolve financial mismanagement or wipe out corruption. It must be part of a broader framework that includes various programming, monitoring and auditing techniques that collectively strengthen accountability, enforce regulations and develop business processes that will reduce or greatly minimize illicit financial practices in development projects.(1

Pradip Mehta, a renowned and internationally recognized speaker on Earned Value, will deliver a light hearted and humorous presentation with real world examples and case studies on the use and abuses of an earned value system.

He will address a few streamlined approaches to get the most out of implementing earned value on both small as well as large projects. He will also examine different elements that play an important role in determining how effective earned value will be for you in your particular application. 

A case study will illustrate some of the dangers and pitfalls of the "strict" interpretation of variance data related to earned value.

Renowned speaker and master scheduler, Eric Uyttewaal, will present an executive overview of his book “Forecast Scheduling with Microsoft Project 2010”. He will show you how to forecast your project with just the schedule, without the need for advanced techniques like Earned Value. Forecast Scheduling builds onto his principle of Dynamic Scheduling that minimized the effort spent on scheduling projects. Eric will challenge you to forecast the actual finish date and total cost of your project, which is what most stakeholders expect from the scheduler. This presentation will show you how to create a dynamic model of the project to forecast it and take scheduling to the next level.
