Agile + Earned Value Management
Agile and Earned Value Management (EVM) are inherently different approaches to managing projects, but they can complement each other in support of flexibility and bottom-line value.

1. Find a common language between execs and those “in the trenches”
2. Measure in the context of EVM
3. Translate agile metrics into common EVM terms
