Tracking and/or monitoring progress against defined milestones and goals
Establish a process for when goals are not met
Revisit and, if necessary, revise goals on a continuous basis
Other: For LAPFF-initiated engagements, progress is monitored by the service provider and progress reports are provided to members in the form of a Quarterly Engagement Report and through presentations at Business meetings. Before each engagement meeting LAPFF sets out two or three objectives, then following the meeting an indication is provided of whether these objectives were achieved and if so how. An assessment is provided of progress, ranging from ‘no progress’ to ’substantial improvement’.
For other collaborative engagements, LAPFF will monitor companies for progress where LAPFF has a direct engagement interest or ongoing relationship with that company. For companies where LAPFF does not have a direct relationship, we allow other collaborators to evaluate company progress and report back.
