多数の主要業績評価指標（KPI）は一般的にITプロジェクトに一般的に影響しますが、そのすべてを追跡するメリットはコストを上回る可能性があります。 したがって、各プロジェクトは、その特定の状況に最も関連するKPIを慎重に選択して管理する必要があります。 このサンプルテンプレートを使用してKPIを定義できます。 以前に定義されたプロジェクト重大成功要因（PCSF）のそれぞれについての可能なKPIの例と、各KPIのメトリック（メジャーとディメンション）を含む表も含まれています。 「ITプロジェクトの健全性を判断する」記事と併用してください。
This single-page PDF flowchart shows the workflow diagram that clearly illustrates the stages of a typical project, which consists of relations between all parts of the project cycle. Workflow diagrams are used to represent the transferring of deliverables during the project phases, to study and analyze the working processes, and to optimize a workflow. Use it as a visual refresher or teaching tool.
