Overseeing tasks and metrics

Controlling is a central aspect of project management. Its role is to oversee all tasks and metrics to make sure that a project achieves its objectives. To control means to ensure that the project is on scope, time and budget. This means that there needs to be a constant exchange of information, measuring of actual performance data and identifying deviations and deciding on countermeasures. Regular team meetings provide information that can aid the monitoring of the project process.
