Few project managers know that Earned Value Management produces serious prediction errors once your project is over half-way complete – Whereas Earned Schedule Management forecasts and predictions, easily out-perform regular earned value metrics – representing a significant advance in project management best practice
Discover what makes Earned Schedule different and how it accurately tracks your project’s real schedule performance so you deliver speedy on-time completion
Project Managers now have a schedule analysis tool connected directly to Earned Schedule data providing you with true time-based indicators!
If you can’t find a single online training course showing you how to understand, perform analysis, calculate and go through real-world examples for Earned Schedule Management…that’s because there aren’t any!
The Project Management Institute (PMI) have now recognized Earned Schedule as “Emerging Best Practice” and it forms part of their official 2018 Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) AND is now included within the official syllabus for those preparing for the prestigious Project Management Professional qualification (PMP)
Earned Schedule Management forecasts and predictions, easily out-perform regular earned value metrics – representing a significant advance in project management best practice
The benefits are huge – if you are using the Critical Chain Method for planning and control (and you should be), blending Earned Schedule is also a piece of cake!
Our Earned Schedule Primer is power-packed with analysis and examples.
The Earned Schedule S Curve is exactly where regular Earned Value fails and produces false completion predictions because EVM uses ‘interpreted’ schedule data derived from cost. This same false data is helplessly driven to show a schedule variance of zero at project end – whether or not the project is behind schedule!
By the time the Project Manager realizes this, the project is inextricably late, and the opportunity to take corrective action is long gone. Whereas Earned Schedule indicators do not fail and give precise status and prediction metrics throughout the entire project duration.

Our results have come through now and I scored 80% on the Practitioner Exam and I can wholeheartedly say this is down to the way you managed to turn that initially inaccessible-looking Prince2 Manual into manageable and practical advice for the exam.
Many thanks again, as I stated on my evaluation form, the course you delivered was by far the best I have been on and has set me up nicely to develop as a project manager.
I am writing because I have been promoted to the post of Senior Project Manager in my organization and it was all possible because of your Primer. It has made me understand PRINCE2 like never before. Thanks Dave, I am so glad your Primer materials have aided my professional career. I am now a superstar at my place of work! Thanks so much and GOD Bless.
I just wanted to let you know that I received my Practitioner results today and I can confirm that I have passed!!!
Thank you so very much for your help and assistance in getting me to where I am now!
Thank you once again, you have really inspired me and restored my faith in human kind by your act of kindness and support.
Your Primer is not just "promising" -- it is a highly professional work reflecting a quality level very-very close to excellence.
I am sure that I am just one more individual joining the long queue of your Primer FanClub ! My sincere congratulations and many thanks for providing the project management Community with such a quality product at such a friendly price!
I passed my Practitioner - and I am very happy! So it is with a huge thank you that I am sending you this email, for your Primer enabled me to have an full understanding of the Method. For me this type of learning is much better, as I believe that you should use all your senses to absorb knowledge. I will miss listening to your voice and the accompanying music. My career is now all on track!
Just wanted to let you know before the ink dries on my certificate, that I've just passed my PRINCE2 Practitioner exam! Although I only purchased your PRINCE2 Primer two weeks ago, the 25 video modules and Body Prime Plc mock exam scenario have really helped me. The online e-learning from another training provider simply wasn't going to cut it beyond Foundation level.
Your content has not only given me more knowledge, but has helped give me the confidence that I can apply the PRINCE2 method as it's intended - in an exam scenario and hopefully in the real world.
Many thanks. I have downloaded your Primer zip files. Had a quick look at the pdfs and started the first video.
Wow, … it is so nicely done. I’ll be recommending them to anyone I know who might need it.
PRINCE2 Approved Trainer
Just thought I should pass on some good news to you! I've just received the exam results for my Practitioner and I passed with 60%!
I used your Primer videos three times and dipped into the official manual once afterwards.
The exam was pretty tough and I don't think I would have passed if it had not been for your training skills and materials.
Many thanks for your help. I must confess I actually enjoyed studying your Primer as it enlightened my understanding of the Method!
I wanted to get my PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner certification and had enrolled on a week long classroom course I found online, I read up and studied as much as I could, but there was far too much crammed in and reading a dull book that has no context and made no sense to me -- it was just not sinking in.
I was frantically searching online for help when I came across one of your videos on YouTube, and it all started to fall into place, something clicked and I was starting to really grasp it. Your PRINCE2 PREMIUM Video Academy Training System - the best money I've spent, really really helpful and most importantly, this gave me the confidence and I passed and am now officially a PRINCE2 Practitioner!
I am very grateful to you Dave and for helping me via emails personally - you seem to be a very kind and genuine chap!
Thanks so much Dave - highly recommended!
I would like to inform you that I have been successful in my Practitioner Exam!
I used all of your Primer, including the sample exam material, plus reference to the OGC Manual. The reference to the manual was not to clarify any of the material covered by you, rather it was to ensure familiarity with the manual's layout for the exam - particularly Appendix A and C!
I cannot thank you enough for all your kind help and patient advice. I have already started recommending your Primer and will continue to do so...
I am sure there is a massive potential market who would be amazed at both the quality and affordability of your Primer, particularly as not everyone has the luxury of having their training financed for them. Most people I have met have had to finance themselves.
I eagerly await your MS Project 2010 Primer as I have to admit, I have been unable to yet find anything to come close to matching your high standards.
Merseyside, United Kingdom
In December 2013 I passed my PRINCE2 Practitioner using JUST the Official Manual and your PRINCE2 Primer course.
No week long course, no classrooms, just me, in the house, with the manual and your course. It was fantastic and I had everything I needed to pass the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam First Time!
Thanks very much!
Thanks and best regards,
I just wanted to drop you a line to say I passed my PRINCE2 Practitioner - Thank You!
A huge part of this success was down to the excellent suite of PRINCE2 Primer materials I purchased from you.
Not only did it help me pass my Foundation and Practitioner exams, but I'll always have them to refer to if I need to brush up on any areas.
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to you for your PRINCE2 Primer playing an important part in my preparation and subsequent passing of both the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams. Once I had gone through all the 25 modules of your PRINCE2 Primer video tutorial, there was no looking back I was immediately confident about the entire syllabus and all the concepts and just needed to appear for the mock Foundation and Practitioner tests (included in the primer). I did not need even need to revise the video material a second time!
I am so impressed by your excellent and effective teaching style that I have downloaded your project management primer and will download the Agile and PMP material when I decide to study for them.
I sat for the Practitioner exam on 7th December 2011, having watched your Primer videos *just twice*
I passed the exam!
Thank you - your videos are great!!!
I would now like to get your Microsoft Project 2010 Primer and videos now...
I have passed my Practitioner Exam! Thank you for all your help! Thank goodness your downloadable Primer videos covered the entire syllabus, as the benefit that they gave me was that I was able learn the Method in my own time, rather than just having to learn it at my aggressively-paced classroom course.
Before attending the classroom course I went on, I worked through your Primer videos giving me ALL the knowledge and information that I needed. Because of this, I had a massive advantage over others on the course as I could listen to the tutor rather than trying to listen and also notes take at the same time. For anyone wanting to attend the Foundation and Practitioner training course, these videos are a must!
Don't get caught short thinking that you will learn the Method in a one-week classroom course; you will struggle, as the content is extensive and complex to learn without prior knowledge!
I took my Practitioner Exam on the 31st October. I found out today that I passed with 270 marks out of a total of 360 marks (a clear 75%!)I had no classroom interaction at all, just pure reading and the experience already gained from using your PRIMER.
The Practitioner course I went on was to give pointers (which I had already from your Primer) and nothing extra that was crucial to pass the exam. So I felt a little slighted that I went on to pay £700 for a 1.5 day course that consisted of 1 day of revision and half a day Practitioner Exam! But Your Primer was spot on...........Again thank you for all your help...it was very much appreciated .....excellent product!
Just a quick note to say that your PRINCE2 Video Primer was excellent and covered all the key PRINCE2 syllabus elements in detail and was very easy to follow.
I took my PRINCE2 Practitioner Exam yesterday and passed scoring 79%.
Thanks again and I will be recommending your course to others.
Thanks to your teaching I obtained a 78% pass. I am Elated. I am tingling all over with the advice that I have just passed the Practitioner Exam. Your Primer course is without doubt the main reason for my success. I wish you continued success and would encourage any prospective students to purchase your Primer course.
I truly appreciate your study materials for the exam and it helped me to gain my Practitioner status now. I just followed your Primer and then sat the exams, and I passed at my first attempt! Your Video training modules and the explanations given in the videos are done to extremely high standards and I am not sure anyone else can present this information as detailed and as easy to follow as your Primer.
I am pleased to inform you that I made it. I passed my Practitioner Exam with an amazing score of 60 marks (Which is almost 75%). You really are a life-saver, I almost quit until I found your website. And there we go, all done, thanks to you. I just wanted to thank you personally.
I just wanted to let you know that I have passed both my Foundation (87%) and Practitioner (74%) exams!
Your study material helped me greatly in achieving this - it was actually better than the 5 day course I went on.
Money well spent.
Just to let you know that I passed my Practitioner last week. I’m sure that your Primer course I bought from you that made the 2 day training course and exam achievable. Your Primer was well segmented, clear and concise with a good amount of general project management tips thrown in along the way. I would heartily recommend anyone think of taking the two day practitioner course including the exam to buy your course, it was more than worth the money!
Your training package and method of course delivery helped me immensely to pass my exams. I found I only had to watch your video modules once as there was continual useful cross reference and revision on previous lessons during the whole learning phase. Having your complete Primer package enabled me to pass the course with confidence. Additionally I feel that I have finally formalized what I have been doing for years.
This was not just about passing the course for me I feel confident in putting the Methodology into practice. A truly great package explained brilliantly and thoroughly. Thank you very much Dave, I'm interested in your other courses using this method and will sign up in a second! It was like a good book I could not put down, very addictive.
I would like to thank you. I passed my Practitioner Exam last week. Due to the fact I was very busy at the office I did not have anytime to read the Manual -- instead... I just watched your videos once. The combination of this training and my own experience was enough for me to Pass. Thank you again.
I finally bought your Master Class PRINCE2 for my Practitioner coming up exam... If I could rank your course 10/10 I would.... Once again you are 'the Man' David and thank you...
I just wanted to send you an email stating how much I appreciate your PRINCE2 Primer course. I found the content extremely well laid out and your video module pages (screens) are of excellent value.
I also find your voice very comfortable to listen to... all in all an excellent course.
I have also done the course by SPOCE but yours tops it by far.... very far.
Thank you very much
I have very much enjoyed your Primer training program. I basically started immediately with the first video and kind of got hooked to it. Upon David's suggestion I answered 50 test exam questions (out of 225) and, as expected, I only got about 1/3 correct. These questions are much more challenging than in the actual exam, but it was a great way to really understand the method.
The rest of the videos dived deeper into all the important aspects and are very easy to follow. Combined with reading the specific chapters in the PRINCE2 manual I noticed that my knowledge improved quickly. I did much better on the remaining exam questions, while I reviewed the material (manual & videos) on the topics of the questions I had answered incorrectly.
The foundation exam was truly a piece of cake, as I finished after 45 minutes and had plenty of time for going back to the questions I had flagged. My exam results (87%) need no further explanation that I went in well-prepared.
Also the practitioner exam went smoothly, although I noticed that timing is crucial. I really needed all the time for that exam, especially since many questions do require you to look things up in the book. So understanding the materials and knowing where to find additional information in the manual is essential.
All in all it took me about a week to prepare on my own (5-6 hours per day). I am very happy to have taken Dave's nice-priced home-study course instead of wasting over 2,500 Euros for a class-based course that basically shows you similar slides without giving you the opportunity to watch certain parts again, either instantly because your mind was wandering off or because you just want to review some topic." Another Pass!
I invested in Dave's Primer, and I am very glad that I did! It is REALLY good and well worth getting. The info is precise and professionally laid out. It includes practice exams and detailed videos which cover the whole of the Method
Very rarely do I take time out to write a real thank you, but after using a your Primer, I just had to! Just got my Practitioner result back and I managed to pass with 77%. I bought your Primer before I went on a combined Foundation/Practitioner course. I sat down and watched your videos through at least twice and I did a fair chunk of the exercises.
As a techy that was looking to get to grips with the Method, I found your videos amazingly useful. Great presenting style and an uncanny ability to simplify a very dry course manual. Really liked your little anecdotes and excellent examples that clarified things superbly. The class room course was okay, but I know for an absolute fact that it was the use of your instructional videos that provided a huge chunk of my exam knowledge.
I hope your Primer gets some form of official recognition as it should be mandatory watching for people seeking to attend an accredited training course, it really should.
With a manual, your videos and a week off work, the Practitioner exam could be easily passed in my opinion (without the need for classroom training!).
I am now off to have a quick look over your other certification Primer Packs Dave, your Primer was the best 97 quid I have spent in a long long time and I am keen to see what is next on the menu!
I hope to find you well?
I received my Practitioner results today & pleased to say that I have passed!
I wanted to thank you as I found your training material extremely useful & covered processes in so much more detail than during the actual course.
So thank you again!
I just thought I would email to show my appreciation for your PRINCE2 Primer! ! bought it just a few weeks ago.
I passed my Practitioner Exam will flying colours, I am so happy. I will definitely be getting my next Primers from your website soon!
Thank you for making it so easy to understand what the examiner wants from us!
Amina Chitembo PRINCE2 Practitioner
Just a little note to say a big thank you for your PRIMER. Thanks to just the Official Manual together with your help, I've PASSED both the Foundation and Practitioners Exams !!
You are an absolute genius. I think your Primer is even better than ILX! Warm Regards, Olamide Akerele
As an experienced project/programme manager who wanted to bring my qualifications up to date, Dave Litten’s Primer packs were the perfect choice and very cost-effective. I crashed through the materials at my own pace and when it suited me, then I repeated the sections I needed to as indicated by my results in the sample quizzes/tests.
Dave is a very good coach offering easy to follow advice on understanding both the concepts and how to pass the exams - needless to say, I passed first time!
I am pleased inform you that I got through my Practitioner Exam and your training materials were immensely useful for my success.
I passed PRINCE2 practitioner yesterday, 70 %.!!!!! Thank a lot Dave, all your PRINCE2 Primer material was of great value for me. Your material and videos were very specific and clear in detail, sample exams also was the perfect complement to the official manual and the official respective course. This accreditation would allow me to advance in advisory aspects of project management in my region I do not want to forget that when I contacted you with inquiries of the material I had immediate response.
I passed my PRINCE 2 PRACTITIONER yesterday and have cleared the exam, all thanks to your PRINCE2 Primer with its extensive videos and learning sessions which has helped me to pass the exam with great ease.
I could easily access the videos on my cell phone and this helped me to study when travelling. Your sample foundation exams were a quick win in scoring and accessing key points to related focus areas.
I am proud to say that I am a registered PRINCE 2 Practitioner and all thanks to Dave's PRINCE2 Primer, the extensive videos and learning sessions which has helped me to pass the exam with great ease. It was definitely an excellent investment for me.
Just had to write to you and say THANK YOU, I used your PRINCE2 Primer and I passed my PRINCE2 Practitioner exams, finally! . . Exams and I don't get on but with your Primer, I felt so much better prepared.
The Primer was excellent, loved the audio files as it allowed me to take you out and about (mostly to the Gym) to continue my learning.
Looking forward to using another one of your Primers in the very near future - keep up the great work
All the best and kind regards
I just wanted to say thank you very much!
Thanks to your simple explanations on your Primer, I passed my Foundation exam today.
I got the highest mark in class, so I am very chuffed!
I will let you know how my Practitioner Exam went.
Thank you! Thank you! I cannot thank you enough!
