Part IV: Monitoring Progress > Monitoring Team Progress

Chapter 22. Monitoring Team Progress

Whether your team is working on a project or a continuing job, you still need to manage your work jointly. Project management really means to follow up on your plans, monitor your progress, reinforce what’s working, and troubleshoot what isn’t. If you don’t, someone above you will and you could lose whatever empowerment you started with. That’s one reason why you must spend time on charters and plans at the very beginning. Then you’ve already decided what to monitor and how to follow up and you’ve contracted for sponsor support.

Monitoring is best done by the whole team continuously so that you stay in touch with your position on your plans and schedules. Use monitoring to check team chemistry, remind each other what needs to be done, and set up early warnings. It’s better to find out early that your plans need adjustment. Frequent fine-tuning averts crises. By checking routinely, you might also discover what support members need to finish their work.
