How to Create Progress Reports for Projects & Businesses

Stakeholders have a vested interest in the progress of a project, so it is important for project managers to keep them updated. A progress report is a report on the project's progress that communicates what has been happening in the project, over a set period of time, to stakeholders. It is used to persuade stakeholders that the project is sound and moving forward as expected, and allows them to make any change requests. Project managers can also use progress reports as a means to address issues that they're having and set more realistic expectations for stakeholders. Progress reports and status reports are both communication tools and provide stakeholders with vital information on the project, but there is one key difference between them.

A progress report is a picture of a project over a period of time, while a status report only captures the moment in which it was initiated. It can be one page or several, and should include a list of tasks, milestones and progress. It should also include items such as the date of the project's start, when it's scheduled to finish and the period that the project covers. Finally, it should include an overview of the contents of the report and a timeline of remaining work and when it'll be completed.
