What is measured?

What is measured? The activities count the bold headings on the grid, namely:

  Work Group (WG) Health Metric Has Been Met If:

  *Active projects are approved projects in active status with resources working on them
  *This measure does not include 3-Yr Plan, On Hold, or unapproved projects
M&C < 2 yrs old The WG's Mission and Charter (M&C) Statement has been updated in the past two (2) years
  *Changes to Mission and Charter statements must be approved by the WG and Steering Division
  *Review without changes to Mission and Charter statements must be approved by the WG with notification to Steering Division

  *A change to a DMP must be approved by the WG. Steering Division approval is not required
  *Send approved DMPs to PIC for review and to for publishing
Project Health Project Health is not Red (must be Green or Yellow)
  *Project Health as expressed on the WG Health spreadsheets is calculated by combining the following measures from the PBS metrics spreadsheet:
  *Ballots requiring recirculation
  *Unpublished ballots
  *WG Missing 3 year plan items in Project Insight
  *Percentage of project insight items with next milestone behind > 120 days
  *A WG with red status on Project Health on Projects, Ballots, and Standards metrics will be incremented on WG Health as well.
