PROGRESS IS CHANGE in STATE

PROGRESS is the increase in VALUE (or the STATE) from beginning to end of the period
What this means is that PROGRESS can be ascertained by reference to the change in state from the beginning to the end of any period, with no need to have any knowledge of the activities during the period.
PROGRESS IS CHANGE IN STATE


Steady State
In this case the ordinary daily activities of the period do not change the state ... the value of the state at the end of the period (EOP) is the same as the value at the beginning of the period (BOP).
GOOD progress
There is GOOD progress when the activities of the period result in a state at the end of the period that is better than the state at the beginning of the period.
BAD progress
There is BAD progress when the activities of the period result in a state at the end of the period that is worse than the state at the beginning of the period.
When this is made the central characteristic of progress measurement, it enables massive simplification of data collection and the analysis process.
