Report Performance

Report Performance is the process of collecting and distributing performance information, including status reports, progress measurements, and forecasts. The performance reporting process involves the periodic collection and analysis of baseline versus actual data to understand and communicate the project progress and performance as well as to forecast the project results.

Performance reports need to provide information detailed enough for each audience. The format may range from a simple status report to more elaborate reports. A simple status report might show performance data, such as percent complete, or status dashboards for each area (i.e., scope, schedule, cost, and quality). More elaborate reports may include: analysis of past performance; current status of risks and issues; work completed during the period; work to be completed next; summary of changes approved in the period; and other relevant information which must be reviewed and discussed. A complete report should also include forecasted project completion (including time and cost). These reports may be prepared regularly or on an exception basis.
