According to PMForum Managing Editor David Pells, ““EVM World brings together the leading earned value management experts from around North America each year, along with experienced program managers. The increased attention on program management and EVM-based performance management in US government agencies is even more reason to attend this event. It’s very important that government program managers and contractor project management teams fully understand EVM, so this conference is even more important than most people realize.”
The 26th PMI-CPM Conference and Training Seminars will be one of the world’s largest and most important conferences on earned value in 2010. This year’s event celebrates 26 years of excellence in training, workshops, practice symposia, and tools track.

• Learn from the best in the business
• Find out “what’s new” and learn innovative EVM strategies
