Monitoring Tasks

The project manager is responsible for monitoring the completion and progress of tasks for the entire project. Based on the tasks defined in your timeline, develop a plan to monitor task completion. For instance, what activities will you set to communicate the completion and progress of tasks (i.e., weekly meetings, committee meetings, email updates, etc.)?

1. Hypothetically, assign estimates of completion and/or progress to each task.

· Note: Some tasks should be accurately estimated while others are ahead of schedule and some behind schedule.

2. Summarize the differences in estimated completion and actual completion.

· If the actual start or finish dates are later than originally estimated, select factors that may have caused a delay and evaluate the importance of the factors to the delay.

3. Discuss how monitoring tasks contribute to the successful completion of tasks and proactively addressing tasks that are behind schedule.

4. Outline the activities planned to communicate the completion and progress of tasks.

In this module, you will be using the timeline you completed last week. (Attached below). Follow the directions below. (See my notes in red.)

The project manager is responsible for monitoring the completion and progress of tasks for the entire project. Based on the tasks defined in your timeline, develop a plan to monitor task completion. For instance, what activities will you set to communicate the completion and progress of tasks (i.e., weekly meetings, committee meetings, email updates, etc.)?

1. Hypothetically, assign estimates of completion and/or progress to each task.

· Note: Some tasks should be accurately estimated while others are ahead of schedule and some behind schedule.

· For this part, use your timeline and make a few hypothetical changes. Change the start dates, finish dates, and variances of some of the task. Even change some of the completion rates. Remember you are making this information up as if you are the Project Manager and you are actually moving along to complete the project.

2. Summarize the differences in estimated completion and actual completion.

· If the actual start or finish dates are later than originally estimated, select factors that may have caused a delay and evaluate the importance of the factors to the delay.

· Using the changes that you made on your timeline, list possible reasons that your start or finish dates are later. What caused the delay? This should be completed in Word document.

3. Discuss how monitoring tasks contribute to the successful completion of tasks and proactively addressing tasks that are behind schedule. Why is it so important to monitor the tasks and start them on time? What happens if there is a delay? How do delays affect the project completion?

4. Outline the activities planned to communicate the completion and progress of tasks. How do you plan to communicate the completion and progress to executives, stakeholders, and your team.
