How to Manage an Agile/Kanban Software Project Using EVM

In this paper, the authors describe a method of using Earned Value Management (EVM) tools to plan and monitor an agile project implemented by Kanban methodology. According to their approach, at specific points in time, in order to monitor and manage the project’s progress, the project manager calculates an overall current “Value” for the project, determined according to the current status of the various tasks. To evaluate the project’s progress at the specific point in time, the manager calculates a schedule performance index, which is the ratio of the project’s actual value to a planned value that the manager has determined in advance.
