I have already submitted a proposal for a talk. Here the proposal:

Earned Value Management can help illuminate where a project is and where it is going - as compared to where it was supposed to be and where it was supposed to be going.

In this session we will review in Odoo an example of a problematic project, and we will try to answer the following questions:
- Are we ahead or behind schedule?
- How efficiently are we using our time?
- When is the project likely to be completed?
- Are we currently over or under our budget?
- How efficiently are we using our resources?
- What is the remaining work likely to cost?
- What is the entire project likely to cost?
- How much will we be under or over budget at the end?

We will then review how the project was planned, executed and measured in order to get to the results shown.
