|The End Project Report is the Project Manager’s opportunity to analyse and measure the performance of the project against the objectives and metrics spelt out in the Project Initiation Document.||
Did we achieve our objectives agreed in the Project Initiation Document? What issues were encountered? What was the impact of changes? What was the level of quality achieved? Is the customer happy?
The Project Board will be very keen to see (and report to their respective bosses) on the successes and failures of the project. So it is important to be careful when writing your report – keep it professional and focus your analysis on hard facts – use your risk and issue logs to support your assertions. While most project documentation rarely sees the light of day once the project has been completed, final reports such as this tend to have long legs both horizontally and vertically within the organisation. Don’t be surprise to see your End Project Report statistics quoted in internal newsletters, annual reports and corporate board reports.
