Description

Synchronizing monitoring with the pace of change ensures that information is available at the right time to inform adaptive management in dynamic settings. For complex aspects of projects, the trajectory is unknown or uncertain, and the pace may be variable. How do you synchronize to the pace of change when the pace of change is not knowable in advance? This paper provides suggestions for dealing with this conundrum.
