Nice summary about project performance measurement.
Thanks a lot,!!

Very good tips Elizabeth!

I like the Percent Complete tip. Many times a task can be parked at 90% and no further progress is made for weeks. That is a red flag to investigate what is really going on with that task.

I personally think project performance should be monitored based on Milestones achieved. Milestones are a driving force towards project completion it gives the stakeholders a sense of direction of the project. Its easy to track and see areas of improvement.

Amazing read, thanks for sharing
