Monitoring and control, thats the answer. From project to project may varied in what to monitor and control, but the proccess is the same: group of monitor and proccess control
Can you please elaborate the tasks in M & C??

Continous M&C will provide check on all aspects of projects

As PM the only thing you must to assure is you are in control. You never can assure that the project is on track. Why? Because there is a probability of being on track that you can not avoid. So, the only thing you can do is to calculate the probability to be behind or ahead and o demostrate you are in control you must show no surprises. You must anticipate the eventss. But again, taking into account that is no possibility to anticipate all the events unless you are God or any other force you believe that governs the Universe..
Network:1579 Monitor and Control

Your project management plan should indicate
* what you will monitor/control (including people, activities, and budget)
* how often
* your thresholds for green, yellow and red

Monitor metrics and milestones. Keep an eye out for critical path milestones and monitor progress towards these milestones.

Thank you Vincent, but how do we control the frequency ? During Planning or Replan during M & C ?
Simple answer is on a regular basis. As often as possible.
With incoming informations, so for most weekly. Then evaluate if replanning is required.

The team's mantra for this to achieve should be: Inspect and adapt, Transparency, Inspect and Adapt, Transparency.......Inspect and Adapt, Transparency......
