How to write a start up report for project management.

Here are some simple guidelines that will enable you to write effective startup reports in order to improve your product management within your company.

Your project management start up reports are reports that give all of the pertinent information: the who, the what, the when, the where, the why, and the how of your particular project. The other benefit to your start up report is that it will set out a systematic approach to your project management.


This means that anyone who is involved in the project will be able to refer to the start up report at any point in time to understand what the end goals and the objectives of your project are. They can also at any stage during the project look at the start up report in order to see what the purpose of that particular stage is.

Here are some important guidelines, steps, and goals that will help you write effective start up reports for your project management.

How to write a start up report for project management

1. Write a preface.

Your preface needs to be informative. The preface to your start up report has to have the purpose of your start up report. This is also the place where you outline the objectives and goals of your project.

2. Write a management summary.

This particular portion of your start up report-the management summary-will set forth all of the operational data that pertains to your project. This is where you set forth the different risks of the projects, combined with any possible alternatives to your project and the method that you are using. This section is also where you put forward all of the data that will demonstrate how your project will effect your organization.

3. Include your statement of purpose and your statement of scope.

These two statements set forward the purposes for your project. You also need to discuss how your project will contribute to and is a part of overall company goals. Your statement of scope will discuss the final products and outcomes of your project. You also need to talk about all of the different expected returns.

4. The Work Breakdown Structure

The WBS is simply a highly technical analysis and description of what the project will entail-the work that will be done. This section is set forth in terms of task summaries-including the timing, different individual assignments, and resources.

5. Project organization information
This section will carefully define and set forth the specific assignments and roles of the people involved in your project. You need to set forth a detailed list of responsibilities and personnel. Don't forget your organization chart.

6. Management System

This portion of your start up report will discuss how you will be managing your project. This means that you need to include:
The organization and format of your meetings.
The details of document control
Details of quality control
The specific process for making any changes in the project
Techniques
Review processes
Reporting processes

7. Assessment of all risks, all assumptions being made, and any dependencies

This portion of your start up report needs to be available to and helpful for all investors in your company and in your project. The project team will also need to be able to access this information at any time.

8. The budget for your project.

Here you set forth a detailed and precise budget for your entire project. You need to set forward all information about the cost of resources and the cost of material. It would also be good to include budget projections from any previous and similar projects.
