At pmri we are using the burn down chart and the tracking board very effectively to manage our training sessions. We are delighted with the results. We are never under accute pressure to cover the topics, and that means every topic gets its share of time. By preparing the tracking board itself, the participants gets familiar with the syllabus, and it helps to tailer the contents during the planning. At any point the participants and the trainer are sure about the progress made and the balance to be achieved. Unwanted deviations are avoided. Helps to stick to the agreed upon agenda. At peace throughout the training. We are institutionalizing it.
