Project Executive Update Guide & Template
A concise format for providing a business improvement project summary update to key senior stakeholders.
The Project Update Template is a simple, concise format template for communicating essential information to key stakeholders regarding progress, findings and benefits delivered as part of a business improvement initiative. It is complementary to the Project Status Update Template, however the Project Update Template is broader, provides additional context and focuses more on presenting findings, insights and benefits rather than reporting on the status of project delivery.
The Project Update Template is best used when reporting to senior business executive stakeholders interested in the business outcomes being delivered on a project. The template should be used on a cadence appropriate for the initiative being delivered and at critical project milestones where there is important information (results, findings, benefits, insights) that need to be communicated.
Clear, concise stakeholder communication is of critical success to any business improvement or transformation initiative. While it is important to have clear reporting as part of regular program governance mechanisms, it is also essential to report upwards and outwards on critical program benefits and insights over the course of the project. Being able to communicate to executives clearly without getting “bogged down” in project delivery details is a must-do for every project.
