10 do's and don'ts for effective progress report Purpose of a Progress Report progress report purpose do and dont We get quite a lot of questions on how to write a progress report.

Where should the focus lie? Which daily tasks are important to let everyone know? What might seem perfectly clear and understandable for one person, might not be so evident for the other. Often, it's just a matter of improving internal communications and learning to share information with others in a meaningful and timely way. Therefore, before starting to write a progress report, be sure what is expected and what is the overall goal.
