Monitoring

Monitoring

Once the basic framework and PAPs are in place, monitoring can commence. Actual achievement each monitoring period (monthly, quarterly etc. as appropriate) can then be plotted to create an “Actual achievement profile” (AAP). This AAP can then be compared against the PAP to provide a strategic overview of progress at any point in time and the need for intervention by senior management. If the DEE framework has been designed to also monitor organizational effectiveness, progress can also be tracked vertically through each of the subsidiary frameworks related to the activities and inputs of the sub divisions to see if their contribution towards the overall organizational objectives and desired outcomes is on track. DEE frameworks enable strategic monitoring of implementation so that senior managers are not overloaded with unnecessary details but can see at a glance, via concise  visual presentation, the areas needing their most urgent attention.
