A project progress report compares actual status and past achievements in a period, and to date, against the planned accomplishments within 1 project. A project typically has a beginning and an ending, and within that, a timeline can be visualized that keeps track of the achievements. Besides, it has milestones, activities, costs over time, RAG status, test points, targets, and forecasts, etc. A progress report describes how the actual project is fitting to the original timeline, with costs and milestones that may vary from the planned original.
For those individuals, who make the biggest impacts, have, what we call, a "high-performance mindset” and are often using professional written templates to achieve their goals faster! This is a very basic matrix in MS Word, which enables you to provide weekly updates to the involved stakeholders on the project progress that is made. Start using it, and impress your boss or colleagues with the way you are handling your projects. Typically, most progress reports will be structured along with the following items:
- Project ID;
- Project title;
- The period covering start and due date;
- Overall project status description (including a RAG Status);
- Highlight Progress;
- Milestone description;
- Latest forecast.
