Project Manager Metrics

By kcmillennium ·
What metrics do you use to determine whether your project managers are productive? Things I have considered include: Managing to budget, delivering on time (projetc and milestones), issues resolved, size of team managed, number of milestones managed, number of faeturs managed, size of budget, and so on.

What I really need is a way to determine who has a bigger/smaller workload and who is using their time more productivly than others from a purely PM view. This is not how shoudla PM manage development productivity.

Thanks.

Project Manager Metrics

I think using Earned Value Analysis is the way forward for you.
This is a standardized reporting tool with which you can determine how much effort has been managed in a project, against how much was budgetted. It also provides you with cost and schedule variance which gives you an indication on how well the project is progressing against its baseline.

However, Earned Value analysis should never be used alone to judge project success/failure. As you have rightly stated, risks and issues, milestones, etcs are all complementary indicators on project status.

From a purely project progress status viewpoint, on how much effort has been expended, how much should have been expended and how much more effort is outstanding, then I would recommend you use Earned Value Analysis.
