As Individuals: At what point in the projectis work accomplished measured?
As Pairs: At what point in the project iscost information collected?
As Teams: If you have a choice, is it betterto collect cost and schedule information,toward the beginning, the middle, ortoward the end of a project?
1. You should start immediately and keep a running total according to work packages, etc.
2. You should collect cost information by work package as in the step above.
3. It is very important that the rate of work (slope) of the middle of the curve be at least as steep as originally planned. It is OK to stumble out of the gate but you had better make sure that you get caught up early.
