  • During a project’s life cycle, IR project managers assess projects utilizing the disciplined Earned Value Management (EVM) process and maintain the project data in IR’s EVM Data Tracking System. On smaller projects that do not require the rigor of the formal EVM process, IR implements a simplified EVM process where project value is assigned or “earned” based on the progress of each individual deliverable, and earned value is reported and tracked at the total project level. This simplified EV system allows IR to track variances and performance indexes as measured and reported at the total project level.

Our repeatable and predictive process of Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling, and Closing leads to overall program improvements across all of IR’s projects and programs.
