Monitoring Progress

Have you set yourself a goal this year? Perhaps you want to run a marathon? Or learn a new language? Or maybe break the world record for the biggest cupcake?

To reach your goals, you need to identify your starting point, and keep checking as you make progress. It’s going to take a lot of practice to beat the Georgetown Cupcake, though – it weighed more than 2,500 pounds! Most project managers are happy to let the cupcake record go, but do have their own goals to achieve.

Monitoring the progress of your project will help you keep track of how far you’ve come, how close you are to achieving your goals, and whether you need to redistribute resources to keep things on track.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Recognize the benefits of monitoring your project’s progress
• Explain the use of data in monitoring and improving your project
• Evaluate data to extract meaningful information

Why take this course?

If you’re managing a project, you’ll need to monitor its progress. If you don’t, you won’t know how far you’ve come, or how close you are to achieving your goals. Monitoring progress will help you make beneficial decisions for the future, manage resources properly, and keep track of important project milestones.
