Project Status Report Template

Project Status Report Template

Any regular Project Status Report entails important information for its readers. Therefore, before starting the report, questions that should come in your mind are – For whom am I writing it? What information is relevant to this report? In case of Project Status Report, target audience would largely be senior management and parallel teams working on the same project

Milestones

Milestones indicates completion of relevant works which are going to stand as it is till the end and will help shaping the whole project. If you are making a smart-phone, acquiring lens for the camera is a milestone- that lens will remain as it is till the end. If you are building an app- completing the GUI is a milestone. If you are setting up a grocery store- finalizing vendor for vegetable supply is a milestone. Milestones should be preempted before the project starts. This gives meaning to the project and helps in efficient work- distribution. The Project Status Report must contain ongoing works (milestones on which the teams are working right now), completed works (milestones already completed), and future works. These works must be evaluated on a time-scale and the Project Status Report must give clear information on when was the work supposed to complete and when it did. Every renewed Project Report must update expected time of completion of individual milestones.

Information for Reader

The projection of information is more important than the details of it. People higher on hierarchy want as objective information as possible. Remember, Brevity is the soul of wit here. Do not give extraneous information until asked for. If some work was not completed on time, the report need not contain the details of circumstances which avoided completion. The senior management reads 100-1000s of Project Reports and they might not be interested in extraneous information.

The above two simple things can make or mar a Project Status Report. Hence, be wise to them. The presentation of report is third important thing but it depends largely on the culture of the firm you are working on. Excel, PowerPoint, Word are some common platforms.
