Work Performance Reports 


1) Work Performance Reports are described in small sections of Chapters 4, 9, 10, and 11 of the PMBOK Guide. Review all of these sections and provide a summary explaining what are work performance reports. Also discuss the potential content and audience for these project reports. Provide an example of how you would use these in your workplace (preferably in a project setting if you work with projects).


Work Performance Reports 

Work performance reports includes information relating to work performance data such as key performance indicators, and technical performance measures (PMI, 2017). Reports consolidate and disseminate the information so that is available for decision making and taking required actions within the project. Progress and status reports are two examples of work performance reports. They aid in managing teams by providing forecasting information on resource needs and help to identify team members eligible for recognition and rewards. Work performance reports also serve as a critical input for project communication. Additionally, work performance reports contribute to monitoring performance related risks within the project and evaluating the effectiveness of project risk management (PMI, 2017).  

In the project I am currently working on, work performance reports could be used to support implementation and enhance communication within our department. Work performance reports would help to inform the internal processes and policies we develop as we implement the new project management tool. Since the work performance report includes project progress, we would have a better timeline and understanding of where the project stands. This would allow us to identify the critical points in the project life cycle and have our implementation guidance prepared with this foresight. Also, we would be able to provide substantive updates to our department on a continuous basis, which would significantly support change management efforts.
