Raw work performance data is used as an input by several monitoring and controlling processes, which analyze the data to produce work performance information. This information can then be compared to baselines or other project standards. The comparisons can then be used to make decisions regarding any necessary controlling actions. For instance, poor results might indicate the need for training or remedial management actions, while good results might be a trigger for recognition and rewards.
