A project gets a year late one day at a time.
Project Smart is the project management resource that helps managers at all levels improve their performance. We provide an important knowledge base for those involved in managing projects of all kinds. With exclusive weekly updates, we keep you in touch with the latest project management thinking.
In Part 1 of this two-part series, we discussed keeping top management informed of your project's status by considering the PM or PMO infrastructure as well as if and why they would need to be informed. We will continue this discussion by considering what to report to them - without overloading them with unnecessary information (thus doing more harm than good) - and how often they should receive it.
It's a given - or it should be - that we keep our project clients and team well informed of project status, issues and next steps throughout the engagement. The status report and revised project schedule should be what drive the project on a weekly, if not daily, basis. What about the rest of the stakeholders? What about those at the top of our own organisation who may not know that much about our individual projects…
