I don’t think it is necessarily a problem of “missing the point of EVM at the project manager/scheduler level. The issue is about effectively communicating results to the senior executive sponsors and customers, most of whom have very little PM knowledge.
The data must be delivered in a common format, which is the “red/yellow/green” tiered format. Inevitably, the questions will be posed “What is a reasonable scale for this metric? What results do similar operations consider as satisfactory performance?”
