Project Metrics, Monitoring – Discussion.

or this week’s discussion, assume you are heading a PMO in an organization that manages a portfolio of capital projects, and you have decided to develop a formal procedure for how dashboards have to be designed. A section of this procedure is supposed to identify the type of materials, necessary metrics, and KPI that, at a minimum, need to be included in the portfolio resource management dashboard for better monitoring and control (Reference dashboard design and dashboard content in Chapter 7 of the textbook).
