Key skills - making a difference

9.5 Monitoring progress

Monitoring progress is about keeping track of how the work with others is going, making sure you are ‘on task’ and ‘on time’. You need to know how to monitor progress in managing a group activity and being a team member. This will involve considering the relationships within the group and managing the quality of the work by using the checkpoints to review the progress towards your goals and outcomes.

Monitoring progress in working with others involves you considering your progress in:

  • managing a group activity to enable the group to achieve its goals effectively and efficiently;

  • establishing and maintaining co-operative working relationships, exchanging feedback and agreeing ways to solve difficulties; and

  • monitoring and critically reflecting on your use of skills in working with others, and adapting your strategy as necessary.
