What is an Executive Summary Report?

An executive summary is a brief report highlighting the major things in a certain project. Managers who read the executive summary should get the essence of the project status without the need to get into the fine details. As with any communication, consider the audience. Include how this particular project impacts the organization as a whole if not already known. Being concise is key.

What does an Executive Summary Report Include?

The overall report should typically be between 1 - 2 Pages and should include, but not be limited to:

  1. The Goal or outcome to be achieved
  2. Overall Cost Baseline, Estimate to Complete & Variance.
  3. Schedule Baseline, Milestones, Actual and highlight any variances.
  4. Mitigation Plans if required.
  5. Risks / Opportunities.
  6. General Concerns.
  7. Future Business.
