Status Report Template

 

Project: <name of your project>

 

Iteration: <the iteration that this is a status report for>

 

Implementation Status

In a sentence or two briefly describe what can currently be run to demonstrate the system.  In other words, what is now available for feedback from the customer and testing within the development team?

Attach or include a few sample screen shows to illustrate the progress.

 

Highlights

List any items of note. Breakthroughs, accomplishments, major decisions, or changes in the project plan.

Are you on schedule, ahead of schedule or behind schedule?

 

Risks or Issues List

In the following table, list any risk or issue that needs to be managed that is critical to the success of the project.

This could be anything from "we need to get good test data from our customer", to" how do we ensure the system is usable", to "performance is unacceptable".

This should be a complete historical list that is kept from the beginning of the project until the end.

Status should be one of New, Ongoing, Closed. The resolution column should be filled in if the issue or risk is closed.

Normally, I would expect a project to have about 1-5 issues or risks they are managing that are New or Ongoing at any given time.

If you have more than that then either you have a project in serious trouble or your criteria for what is "critical to success" is to loose.
