Gap analysis is the comparison of actual performance with the desired performance. Project managers facilitate gap analysis, when it is necessary to know where the project is and when they need to assess the differences in performance. The tools and techniques used for facilitating gap analysis will have an impact on the project as they will determine to what extent the gaps would be identified. It is important, therefore, to know what tools and techniques are best to be used to facilitate a gap analysis for a project.
