Agile Schedule Performance Management

Agile Earned Schedule Management (AgileESM©) combines the speed and responsiveness of Agile with the accuracy and control of Earned Schedule.

Since its introduction a decade ago, Earned Schedule has improved the ability of Earned Value Management (EVM) to measure and track schedule performance. Agile projects already use EVM to manage cost performance, and they can now do the same for schedule performance.

AgileESM© gives Agile teams a new practice that enables them to assess schedule performance and identify when corrective action is required. AgileESM© also offers tools that make it easy for Agile teams to use the practice on their projects the AgileESM Calculator is available today for a free trial or for purchase.

The use of Earned Value techniques on Agile projects is not without
controversy, but there is strong, objective proof that AgileESM is valid for Agile projects.
