The ability to plan an effective budget is critical to the understanding of planned and actual costs in a project. The only way to understand both schedule performance and the accuracy of the budget is to create a baseline. Use your text reading and the ProQuest article by Marcia Jedd to describe the linkage of a time phased approach to budgeting and the importance of a baseline for the project. How does this baseline enable measurement of project health?
I downloaded the assigned article and assigned reading for you.
