Summary

This hour discusses the "manage" in project management. The first step is to analyze the ongoing project for task schedule variances and work progress. Variance tables, activity reports, and project summaries help point to progress and problem areas. Progress lines and custom Gantt Charts offer visual clues to task progress. A sophisticated Earned Value Analysis offers another management tool by comparing work progress and accumulated costs.

The tradeoffs in project tracking are very similar to the tradeoffs originally considered during the planning stage. If all else fails, you might have to reduce the scope of the project or compromise quality to meet other goals.
