What Is Project Reporting?
Reporting… it’s what a project manager does. No matter whether you are a travel freak or a professional learner, you must have created a report once in your life, either by hand or with reporting tools.
A Project Management Report is an overview of the current status of the project. It is a record of the state of a project at a given time.
According to the size and complexity of your project, the project report may be required weekly or monthly. This report is provided to all stakeholders to keep them up to date on the project progress.
It is the use of formal and informal reports to communicate the status of your project. It is an effective way to manage expectations from your stakeholders and team members as well as provide the scope, time and budget for your project.
Project reports may not seem the most glamorous part of your job, but they have the power to ensure whether or not projects finish according to the plan.
