Redesigned Initiatives Overview in 2.9

Version 2.9 came out a few months ago, and one of the biggest changes is that the Initiatives section now supports Earned Value Management (EVM) projects.

Based on the EVM methodology, users regularly update how much has been spent on a project and what percent complete it is. The software then shows a graph tracking their progress and projects both budget and schedule to determine how the project is performing.

Even if you don't strictly follow the EVM methodology, the redesigned Initiatives Overview screen is much easier to use than previous versions of the software.
