3 Examples of a Project Status Report

A project status report is a document or dashboard that communicates the current state of a project to stakeholders. This is typically a weekly report that is prepared by the project manager to communicate progress, scope changes, issues, risk, milestones, budget and schedule information. The following are illustrative examples.

Executive Overview

At a minimum, a project status report is a RAG status for scope, schedule, budget, issues and risk. The following example is appropriate as an executive overview.

Project Milestones

It is common for a status report to include the state of upcoming milestones. There is no need to list the status of tasks as this becomes a duplication of the project schedule.

Project Issues

Beyond status information at the project and milestone level, a project status report can also include a list of currently open issues. It is customary to report closed issues once and then remove them from the status report.
