Developing the Programme of Works is an iterative process so as to ensure that it is in line and up to date with all the other Project Management Processes and documentation. It is critical that the Programme of Works is baselined before the commencement of each stage.
Once the Programme of Works has been baselined, tracking and reporting of progress must be performed in line with the requirement of the Project Management Plan. It is important that the tracking includes the updating and inputting of as-built data into the Programme of Works, so as to, capture historic Project information. Reports shall be structured in a manner that reflects as-planned (baseline) vs as-built milestones, any time risks and recovery plans if applicable.
Effective project scheduling plays a crucial role in ensuring project success.
