Gate Value Method – A different approach to Earned Value


The Gate Value Method was developed by Core Consulting Group as an alternative to Earned Value for business and technology projects. Organisations often struggle with the implementation of Earned Value due to the effort required to set up and maintain Earned Value Management systems. The Gate Value Method is a far simpler approach which can provide significant benefits in terms of visibility of cost performance without the overhead and complexity associated with Earned Value Management systems, particularly where an organisation aligns to governance gates.
