Cumulative Flow Chart

The Cumulative Flow Chart provides project managers a timeline. To me, it is an invaluable asset for teams that want to stay on top of their projects. Keeping a good track of project progress gives us numerous benefits. The most important of these are being one step ahead of potential problems, reaching goals, being aware of deadlines and budget constraints. Once having this awareness everything will be easier.

By following this diagram, project teams will have an idea of how many tasks have been completed and how and at what pace progress has been made. With this knowledge, project teams are better equipped to achieve their goals and ultimately the ultimate goal of success. By using this data, te project team can predict potential obstacles or the project timeline can be revised as needed. The cumulative flow diagram is especially useful when using agile project management approaches that use several sprints or iterative processes. This is why i like this diagram very much.

By using cumulative flowcharts, project teams gain a deeper and more robust understanding of their operations. This makes it possible for teams to quickly identify where changes need to be made. This may include long assignments, unnecessarily repetitive, or out-of-the-ordinary tasks. By improving workflow, teams can increase project results and reduce the likelihood of delayed results or overspending.
