She expressed dissatisfaction with the slow progress of the project.

 

Progress refers to 'moving forward/success' in one instance.
'Progression' refers to a pattern of repeated, successive (one after the other) cases of progress. Progression occurs either over a sustained period of time, or over several incidences (many projects, rather than one project).
