“My experience with EVMI® Earned Value Management Institute® has been really amazing! The EVMP® Earned Value Management Professional® & EVMP – Government™ and joint EVMD/EVMO™ Earned Value Management Director/Earned Value Management Officer™ certification programs that I have taken were taught by Professor Kwaku Akyeampong.

“After successfully budgeting and estimating large systems integration, development and business process re-engineering projects for many years, I did not think I would gain much from the EVMP® class, but since many contracts are now coming out with EVM as a requirement, I felt compelled to take the class. I had assumed that the class would focus on how to generate the required reports but it was an extremely comprehensive and well presented overview of program management, risk management, quality management, how to ensure your processes and systems are EVM compliant as well as the technical aspects of how to schedule activities, budget to those activities, and ensure your projects are on schedule and within budget.”

Mr. Derrick Oetting, BS (Computer Science), CCNA, MCP, EVMP®

“After receiving my EVMP® certification, I learned to address any variances and program problems before they escalate into something major. I learned how to bring the program’s problems to meetings to brainstorm a resolution. In addition, I learned that to run a program successfully, you have to allocate the program’s responsibility down to the CAMs and across to team members. I also gained more insight on how to calculate program variances and mitigate program risks; and that allocating the responsibility to the CAMs will make the program run smoother.”

Mr. Minh-Nhat Ngo, BS (Economics), MBA, EVMP®
Earned Value Management & Financial Analyst, PRAXIS, VA, USA

“Your EVMP® course which I just completed reinforces my experience over the years with EVM. As an industry standard and best practice, EVM provides transparency and accountability of a project’s performance from the Control Account Manager all the way to executive level managers. Further, as you emphasized during the course, senior management support and the integration of EVM with other management controls, such as Risk Management, Configuration Management, Schedule Management, Engineering Management, and Quality Management are essential elements of effective project management. With strong management support and the integration of these controls the project manager’s chances for managing costs, schedules, and delivering a quality product are greatly improved.”

Mr. William D. Jenison, BS (Industrial Engineering), ME (Industrial Engineering), MS (Systems Management), EVMP®
Senior Scheduling Manager, NASA, Maryland

“In over 22 years of engineering/manufacturing support I have had the opportunity to witness good and bad examples of project management on project sizes ranging from micro electronics to jumbo commercial aircraft. Effective project management is the key to successful completion for projects of any size and complexity. The Earned Value Management Institute® (EVMI®) provides training in the area of program management that utilizes real world examples and experiences in a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable manner.”

“Currently the projects our company completes are small and the budgeting is handled at the contract level, not the project level. The principles of EVMP® have been implemented and already there have been improvements in on time delivery of goods to our customer. All projects were monitored on a time scale however the method used before was in depth and time consuming taking time away from other priorities. The principles of the Earned Value Management Institute® make program tracking a simple and hassle free task” “I have experienced other styles of program management such as TQMS. The training staff was not driven to see the students succeed as it was with EVMI®. This is training that will be valuable both personally and to our company as we move ahead with government contracts in the electronics industry.”

Mr. Kurt Teets, BS in Mechanical Engineering (BSME), EVMP®
Senior Engineering Manager, Rosebud Electronics Integration Corporation (REI Corporation), Mission, SD, USA

“As a result of attaining the EVMP® certification from EVMI®, I was able to immediately apply direct knowledge and EVM planning considerations in my role as a key team member on an EIA-748-C EVMS Compliance program, as well as an overarching Integrated Program Management initiative here at the Department. In the course of developing of a standardized WBS for use in an IMP/IMS model, we were able to clearly articulate and emphasize the critical importance of planning for, and embedding EVM strategies and practices early in the planning and scheduling processes.” “The skills and knowledge gained through my EVMP® certification training were instrumental to our team’s development of an EVMS compliance program. Our implementation plan was augmented with an EVMS Compliance Toolkit containing SOP’s, self-assessment checklists and a CER handbook, as well as process validation and testing procedures. We elected to demonstrate EVMS compliance on a target program and validate the processes necessary to achieve EVMS compliance during this demonstration. The end goal to set in place an EVMS compliance program with repeatable processes that can be instituted by all Exhibit 300 Programs in order to achieve EVMS compliance.” . “My EVMP® training experience and EVMI®’s focus on the management concepts related to Earned Value, rather than simply the mathematical mechanics helped us to detail a plan to transform the practice from a mandated series of reports, beyond an early warning system, and into an executable program management mindset and technique”

Mr. Jim Gibbons, EVMP®, PMP®, ITIL®, CTT+
CEO, XO Consultants

“I felt that the homework was the most challenging aspect of the course, however, it prepared me for the EVMP® credential certification exam, and this certification will ensure [and add] quality and value to my job”

When I speak on aspects of EVM, I am reflecting EVM best practices, and its highest standards. I feel an even greater degree of professionalism, and an amazing degree of foresight in seeing beforehand the many challenges and obstacles that affect so many software development efforts, and may help put things in place to reduce, avoid and mitigate some of those perceived risks.”

Mr. Arnold Reynolds, MS (Mathematics), MS (Information Systems), EVMP®, PMP
Earned Value Management Subject Matter Expert & Principal Consultant, SENTINEL Program at Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI)

“Before the EVMP® course there was a “fog” in my thought process between the budget and the final desired product. The EVMP® course has cleared that fog for me. I am completely confident to use the EVMP® tools and implement EVM into division policy. I am able to participate in discussions and planning sessions that involve projections of possible outcomes and desired results that include realistic budget estimates and scope creep precautions.” “Lots of hard work. EVMI® is a very focused and professional organization. The practical work and case studies were not only relevant but they expanded my knowledge base and opened new dimensions of basic understanding.” “Come prepared to work day and night. This EVMP® Earned Value Management Professional® certification is one you will earn and be proud of. Study everything you can”

“Previously I served 9 years on active duty and have attended several civilian education and training courses since. The EVMP® course is presented in a way that integrates the target knowledge into each participant’s current working knowledge base. There are plenty of hands-on, practical exercises with immediate feedback. The classroom discussions create information sharing between subject matter experts (SME). There are also opportunities to form study groups and the instructor is available before and after training sessions for as long as is needed/productive. It is truly possible to take away as much knowledge as you can possibly absorb. Concerning presentation, content, and instructor competence [Professor. Kwaku Akyeampong, EVMI® President was my instructor]; EVMI® is far ahead of the rest and sets a new standard of excellence”. “The most valuable aspects of the EVMP® course for me are the: The Stakeholder Matrix – Managing Stakeholders; EVMATOM® Matrix for tracking and managing project tasks; and most valuable, the lifetime relationship established with EVMI® for onsite visits, and future mentoring. EVMS implementation seems nearly instinctive to me now.”

The Earned Value (EV) data was there, however, I was not able to leverage it effectively to regain control as quickly as I would have liked”. “This EVMP® training has given me the tools to bring order to chaos “quickly”. I can not change what could have happened or the difference that could have been made if this was part of my tool sets [referring to EVMP® training and certification] in the past. However, completion of this EVMP® training and certification certainly provides me with what I need to deliver what is required on time and within budget going forward”
