How To Measure The Project Return

When you talk about the return of a project, your mind immediately thinks of the economic benefit to be obtained. But return is a broad concept that, depending on the type of project, may include more qualitative and intangible aspects, such as the acquired knowledge, the achieved operational improvements or even the “social return”, derived from those benefits that a project can bring to the environment where it is developed. For instance, that can be especially relevant in solidarity projects like those developed by NGOs within their social function.

However, no doubt that, in many projects, there is an essential explicit goal to achieve profitability. The clearest example that we can find is one in which a project is developed based on a price. This price can be either previously agreed with a client or established as the budget of the project by the organization that is undertaking it.

Priority, Urgency, Status and Progress of Tasks

A project, contrary to what one might think, is not a simple, lineal sequence of tasks. There are often overlapping tasks within a project or even between different projects. In these cases, it is essential to have clear criteria to help us choosing in which tasks should we focus our efforts in every moment; that is, we need a way to analyze the priority, urgency, status and progress of the different tasks.

Priority and urgency are concepts that sometimes are confused but which are related to very different issues. Urgency –a clearer concept– has to do with the existing time restrictions (ie. the estimated time to fulfill it) and the need to meet deadlines.

On the other hand, priority is a more complex variable but it’s also more important. When setting the priority of each task, different aspects should be taken into account:

Do I Really Know How I Spend My Time?

Many times we look back to see if we have made good use of our time, whether in our leisure moments –as when we’re back from a trip–, or in our work. But, when speaking about projects, why is it so necessary to know how I spend my time?

Having this information will be very useful at different stages during a project development. In this regard, we can emphasize 3 big benefits:

Project Management & Time Tracking, A Perfect Marriage?

“A man who dares to waste one hour of life has not discovered the value of life” (Charles Darwin)

Today we want to bring out a discussion about a valuable resource than, more often than not, we want to multiply or stop: time.

The evolution of technology has brought us new ways to find out how we’re distributing time, especially at the workplace, and project management is a particular case where this effect is noticeable. When we are immersed in the execution of a project it is very important to know how much time we are spending on it. But, why? We want to show you 4 benefits that arise from the use of time-tracking tools in your project management for both those of you who occupy the position of project manager and the rest of members of the project:
