What is a monthly project report?

A monthly project report is a formal recorded overview of any project, including its timeline, challenges, and results. It’s shared to ensure stakeholder awareness (and to ensure the project stays on track). Keen to try one out? Our template has everything you’ll need.

Why does your company need a monthly project report?

Reduce distractions

Research suggests that 5-minute email interruptions cause a task to take 30% longer, and with multiple projects on the go, your team needs space to do the work. When stakeholders are confident that the project is in hand and a visually appealing monthly update is coming, they’re less likely to enquire randomly.

Improve clarity

Maintaining enthusiasm for a project over the long term can be difficult. A project report can be a timely reminder for anyone falling behind on tasks. Reiterating the next steps and showing clear deadlines can help employees avoid procrastination.

Enhance engagement

Every month, there are people on your team who are doing great work. A monthly project report ensures that hard work doesn't go unrecognised. It's also a great way to help others jump in, as a Project Report neatly summarises the essence of the project for newcomers.

What elements should a monthly project report include?

Executive summary

  • Key details (such as project name, date, and involved stakeholders).
  • A table of contents macro for quick navigation links to the most relevant areas.

Targets & progress

  • Graphs, images, or text to group information around your progress and insights.
  • Progress stats, such as resource allocation, budget, or time investment.

  • Ideas and links include beta feedback, risk analysis, budget details, and a resourcing overview. Use tabs to organise the ideas neatly instead of one long stream.
