Properly communicating is a critical factor on many projects. The purpose of status reporting is to manage the expectations of the sponsor and the stakeholders. In many cases where conflicts arise, it’s not because of the actual problem, but because the client or manager was surprised by it. Managing expectations through status reporting will keep such surprises from happening.
At a minimum, all projects should communicate status. The status process should include team members sending status updates to the project manager and the project manager sending status updates to management stakeholders. On a small project, the status update might be informal, but as your project gets larger, it should become more formal, taking the form of a Status Report.
