Macro & Micro Monitoring: Macro Monitoring: Includes overall business objectives, time, quality & budget. Micro Monitoring: Includes tracking individual tasks; that they have been initiated, that they are running on track and that they are due to complete as planned. www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 14

Project Status Reports: Completion of delegated tasks. Completion of key stages. Any work that is behind schedule & why. Any issues that need to be resolved. Any difficulties anticipated in the near future. To compile a project status report, you will need the following information: www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 15

Important questions to ask when evaluating projects: Is the project on schedule? Is it within the allocated budget? Have the milestones been achieved? If not, what action has been taken to correct the situation? www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 16

Monitoring Involves: The time spent on project tasks. The resources used (people, materials and equipment). Compliance with applicable quality standards. www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 17

Possible actions that can be taken to rectify problems: Split key stages to avoid each following another in sequence when there is no necessity to have one in place before the next. Re-evaluate dependencies in your logic diagram. Make use of slack time to speed up tasks. Minimise duplication of effort. Renegotiate lengthened time scales if an unanticipated problem caused delay that cannot be recovered. Decrease staff to increase other resources. www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 19

2 Questions!!! Do our cost calculations correctly reflect reality of the project? Do our cost values effectively represent the effort which was spent to execute the project? www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 20

Problems in project cost measurement: There is no way to directly measure project costs. Project cost measurement is always an indirect process, sometimes very indirect. Behind project cost measurement are human beings who can make mistakes and misinterpret the rules. In worst cases, there could be humans who have an interest in distorting cost values. www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 22

Advantages of reducing project duration It saves cost (long term); It enhances organisational growth and expansion; It enables the organisation to move on with other core business activities; and It enhances overall organisational effectiveness and productivity. www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 23

One effective way to reduce project duration is to shorten the dependency flow of project tasks. Copyright © 2012: Derek Hendrikz Consulting www.derekhendrikz.com

Effective Communication will insure that: The project team responds to the changing needs of the project and works to the best of their ability. You get the information you need to help you monitor and control project tasks. The stakeholders respond positively to the progress of the project, and remain committed to its success. www.derekhendrikz.com

Слайд 32

Managing Conflict: Treat conflict as a perceptual difference. Place your own assumptions on ice. ‘First seek to understand – then to be understood’. Separate people from problems. Go for win-win solutions. www.derekhendrikz.com
