A sound baseline survey is the foundation of an effective monitoring and evaluation system. A survey is essential to efficient data gathering and analysis. Even though it may seem obvious that baseline data is required to comprehend the cause and/or effect of any study or policy implementation, baseline surveys frequently don’t receive the attention and effort they should, which reduces the effectiveness of their subsequent studies and policy implementation.
The processes involved in constructing an effective baseline survey entail some labor, which is necessary to gather relevant data that will, in the long term, increase success and understanding of the topic being examined.
A baseline survey is a clearly defined starting point for your project plan. It is a fixed reference point to measure and compare your project’s progress against. This allows you to assess the performance of your project over time.
To set a project baseline, you must first determine the scope of your project. This can be done with a scope statement, which is a list of project objectives and deliverables.
A project baseline should be documented and controlled. It should not be changed without following formal change control procedures, such as using a change request form and following a documented change approval process.
