#4: Project Management
Project Plans - Track Progress
Maintaining projects on time and within budget is one of the greatest challenges for any project manager. To minimize delays and cost overruns, realistic project plans are vital for keeping projects on track by identifying what needs to be done and when; time, money, personnel and resources needed for each task and phase; critical paths/milestones; interdependencies among various tasks - i.e., how delays in one task can impact others; as well as who will be doing what and when. Since the best-laid plans can go awry, a tracking system is also critical for monitoring progress.
With viable project plans in hand and real time updates from project team on hours worked and tasks completed, progress can be tracked, delays anticipated and corrective measures implemented to keep projects on-time and within budget.
