Is there a single word that means to reassess or reevaluate a situation at frequent intervals?

How about a two-word alliteration (e.g. "fail fast")?

Perhaps you can use monitor. According to Collins:



1) a person or piece of equipment that warns, checks, controls, or keeps a continuous record of something

verb (transitive)

10) to act as a monitor of
11) to observe or record (the activity or performance) of (an engine or other device)


An idomatic expression for this kind of vigilance is:

to keep tabs on

To monitor; to keep track of; to watch. If you are careful to keep tabs on your finances, you should be able to stay within a budget. The police kept close tabs on him during the holidays.
