Auditing performance
Network:1639



In my experience, success or failure of a project depends on the changes that occur after it begins. So, having a clear process is the best way to ensure that the relevant details like how much it will cost, why it is necessary, and the impact of the change on the overall project. Also, if this is followed it will be very effective in auditing performance during or after project completion.
What are your thoughts on this?

Yes, it's very challenging. I guess it will ensure the team members and other stakeholders with the opportunity to be candid if it's conducted by an outside facilitator.

Agreed. There are expected challenges throughout a project. Having the proper processes and tools in place to navigate provides increased chance for success with a more substantial audit trail.

Anish, establishing and properly updating baselines for all key objectives is a prerequisite for being able to accurately evaluate performance as things will change over the course of a project.

At my PM team we are audited by the Governance Manager who mainly checks if all the documentation was gathered timely, if all formals approvals are available, etc... Unfortunately, I don't remember an audit on any of my project's impact on a long term, which is sad. We leave it up to Operations to measure it but - at the end of the day - we never know what we should be doing differently.

Thanks Isabel for your feedback on this.
I concur with you on this, since I cannot recall an audit after project completion on my projects in the recent past.
