What exactly is your boss looking for?
There are many moving pieces in any given project and your managing hundreds of projects, so when your boss asks you for reports, what is she really asking for? Below, I’ve outlined some of the key information your boss is looking for:
- Projects by status
How many of your projects are started, in progress? Behind schedule, etc.
- Projects by type
How many small cell projects vs. co-location projects are you working on? How many pole replacements vs. LED bulb installations?
- Project start date
When did your projects start?
- Project projected completion date
When do you expect your projects will be competed? Does that date align with deadlines?
- Are you at capacity or can you take on more projects?
How many projects are you managing and how much time does each task take? Can you take on more projects? Do you need to offload projects to another project manager?
