Metrics Based Project Governance

Pam Morris - 2005
The Scope Manager's role is both that of 'quantity surveyor' & project auditor. This paper defines this role & descibes the process & the benefits of the metrics they bring to a project. It discusses how organisations typically do not harness the potential of the metrics personnel in their organisation to pro-actively assist project teams manage risk. The engagement of independant Scope Managers on a project assists in assuring successful projects or providing early warning of projects in trouble.
