The baseline is a reference point for all the things that are true about a project at a particular point in time – the approved scope, cost, schedule and risks. It’s a critical document that allows project teams to measure how initiatives are progressing and ensure the end product meets project objectives.
Change is inevitable on any project, and it’s important to always have one eye on the horizon. If the baseline represents everything that is true about a project right now, forecasting represents everything that we can reasonably anticipate will be true about it in the future.
