Please fill in actual activity for Last Month (December and January) and intended activity for This Month (February) for projects you are responsible for. For reference, the intended activity recorded for December is included where an entry had been made (it is considered unhelpful to alter this to match what actual activity was :). It is acceptable to change devproj milestones as part of this process, however if you do please indicate that you have done so below, for example by adding a Change of Plan bullet point, so that the meeting is alerted to the changes.
