I create the mind map first. That is the way I master complex concepts. This time, it is Earned Schedule Management. While the Earned Value Management focused on cost, in Earned Schedule Management, the focus is on Time. Here is the mind map I drew, and the link to the reference document. While I am good at Earned Value Management, when it comes to Earned Schedule Management, I am just beginning my journey. I am seeing lot of parallels among EVM and ESM, and I will try to connect these two as this post improves through several iterations.
This is is a work in progress.
