Your project sponsor is not familiar with earned value management (EVM). You have been asked to provide him with a quick overview of EVM. Suggest the top three EVM performance measures (some may also be indexes) on which you would educate your project sponsor.
Explain what each measure tells the project manager. Also, identify other performance factors beyond EVM that you would communicate to your sponsor. Provide a rationale for your selection of topics.
Identify similarities and differences between action research and traditional research.
Explain why businesses might choose to implement an action research approach rather than a traditional research approach to solving problems. Support your ideas with a relevant business example. Discuss if you agree with the type of research used to address the relevant business example.
