What should be included in a status report?

The weekly team status report provides managers and executive staff with a clear and accurate picture of the performance in a company related to specific a job, project or goal.

  • An overview explaining where your team, department, company stands for this week. Focus on 1-3 main goals with measurable KPIs.

How do you write a weekly status report?

Weekly team status reports are written to inform managers, executives and stakeholders of your team’s progress in relation to the specific project and business goals and objectives. Put yourself in your manager’s position and consider: What do they want to see in this report? How will the report help in assessing if my team is on track to meet milestones and deadlines?

Here are a few tips for presenting important information in your weekly status reports:

  • Open by summarizing your team’s OKRs , and how much confidence you have that you are going to hit goals this month, quarter, year.
  • If tasks and items weren’t completed as expected last week, explain why.
  • List tasks and items in order of priority.
  • Mention any risks and roadblocks.
  • Ask outstanding questions, give kudos to your team and share additional notes related to OKRs.
