This paper introduces the use of project metrics and how they can provide a unique insight into large, complex projects. Traditional scheduling tools that use proven techniques such as Critical Path Methodology (CPM) are very useful for planning and determining the likes of sequencing of work but they can also result in very complex outputs in the form of network diagrams and Gantt charts. This paper discusses an innovative approach for simplifying how activities in projects can be portrayed to the project team and how insightful metrics can be applied to provide valuable insight into the health and performance of projects and portfolios.
