Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi Carlos,

We believe that senior management commitment is the top issue when trying to implement either enterprise project or earned value management. Another example of this, is that senior management sometimes believe their commitment is made when they approve the implementation and sign the check/cheque. We believe that senior management need to actively participate throughout the whole implementation to improve its chances of success.

That said, the other items are critical to any successful deployment, particularly the ones you mentioned.

Best Regards,

Emily
