Much is being written on the topic of process dashboards, but in reality there is not as much being done as is possible. I will start today by making the case for a process dashboard and we will pick up how best to go about doing this in detail in the coming days.

- The future will require individual projects using best practice processes to be based on the same methods and procedures
- Problems remain hidden for tool long in a project, until it starts to affect, schedule resources and budgets adversely
