THE USE OF EARNED VALUE MANAGEMENT FOR INITIATING DIRECTIVE PROJECT CONTROL DECISIONS: A CASE STUDY

Ntokozo H. Nkiwane, Werner G. Meyer, Herman Steyn

Abstract


With large infrastructure backlogs in Africa, well-controlled projects will play a significant role in African infrastructure development. In this paper, the monitoring and/or directive use of Earned Value Management (EVM) is investigated and linked to project management maturity. This case study also investigates the use of EVM based on the financial and schedule risk distribution among project role players, and the effect of EVM on project performance. The results show minimal use of EVM in the directive control of projects; at best, the directive use of EVM is found to be implied rather than deliberate and methodical.
