A strategy for ongoing project evaluation

By evaluating projects before, during, and after implementation, project managers can most effectively plan, organize, monitor, and control their project's activities and progress. This article outlines a strategy for performing ongoing project evaluations. It identifies four parts of project control systems and nine questions that project managers and their project teams can use to evaluate their projects. It then examines the way that project managers can use a project management system (PMS) as a reference point when evaluating projects. It defines the six PMS subsystems and the eight strategic elements of project planning. It also lists the six types of stakeholders and six pre-implementation questions; it outlines a four-part stakeholder survey for evaluating three project management functions: planning, organization, process, and accomplishments. It describes seven guidelines for measuring project evaluation results and five questions for auditing project evaluations.
