Each has its purpose, but when used incorrectly, they can drastically reduce the value of your schedule risk assessment. Don’t risk your schedule by using the wrong model! Join us for a live webinar to learn more about risk modeling overall, and how choosing the right approach can keep you on plan and under budget.
You likely already know that earned value management (EVM) is a framework for managing projects. But what is an earned value management system (EVMS) and why is it so important to comply with EIA – 748?
The Guild chaps have asked us to poll you, our fine practitioners on what you think about the following names that have been proposed for the Guild of Project Controls Career Path Matrix Levels.
The five levels that relate to the Guild's Career Matrix are shown below...
> FELLOW Level (a right know it all) > EXPERT Level (Planning Manager) > ADVANCED Level (Senior Planner) > PROFESSIONAL Level (Planner) > INTERMEDIATE Level (Assistant Planner)
We have been asked to find out your opinions on these and to offer one last chance to propose a change or to freeze and 'baseline' them...
There has been some discussion whether or not the INTERMEDIATE Level is the appropriate term for those of us in the Assistant Planner / Scheduler, Assistant Cost Engineer or Assistant Project Controls Engineer role etc?
So, in context of the Career Path Matrix and also our Credentials, does it in your opinion reflect a reasonable 'descriptor' for this stage in a practitioners career and also for the Guild Certification they may have attained?
Test our INTERMEDIATE (beginner) Level exams and if you pass recieve a FREE Intermediate (beginner) Level Certification in one or more of the following:
> in Planning & Scheduling (GiPS)
> in Cost Management (GiCM)
> in Forensic Analysis (GiFA)
The exam is OPEN BOOK, meaning you can refer to the Guild Compendium & Reference and it has a fixed time limit, will demonstrate what you KNOW and UNDERSTAND and can be done at HOME or in the OFFICE on your BROWSER.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to get involved but hurry because time is running out and places are short, or should that be time is short and places are runing out?
