Four-Part Client Report
Four-Part Titles

This Four-Part Client Report is a main reason Program Leader was developed.     Project teams of engineers, constructors, and clients have thanked me for this particular report.  The four segments set an agenda, so that meetings with clients and/or contractors are more productive and a place where quality decisions get made. It is based upon the A5 model of group motivation.  You won’t find this report anywhere else!

You can choose which completed activities to include in reports based upon date completed. This prevents the report from getting cluttered with old data.

Supervisory

This report, hardly found elsewhere, is to discuss current activities with a supervisor whose employees work on your projects.  Similar reports exist for subcontractors and WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) Managers.

Completed activities are highlighted.

This is one of four Financial Reports that summarizes Estimate at Completion Impact. Risk potential is shown in Advanced mode.

Payees
Metrics

step-change capability over free web apps and spreadsheets. It’s far less expensive and risky than competitive offerings that replace business systems. Written by an owner and contractor design/construction project manager whose software creations have been incorporated by prominent organizations, it supports issue, task, risk, and cost management for projects subject to frequent deviations from project plan or design basis.

 

Attractively designed and easily installed, learned, and operated, while forgiving user oversights,

 

Program Leader offers: a Basic mode for newcomers, guiding dialogs, report templates, tooltips, infocons, help text, wizards, data consistency checks, and training videos. In order to simplify operation, maintenance, and quick response at client’s sites (where WiFi is often private) the product operates from the user’s computer.  This enhances security as external-to-company servers are not employed.

 

In Small Project Domains, Program Leader documents agreed tasks with project team members
in a way that interactive communication principles found in The One Minute Manager* can be exercised. Program Leader affords the project manager database control so that information can be trusted. Gantt views with predecessor linkage, finish date prediction, and framing by stakeholder context visualize task flow. Performance measurement is achieved with Metric Reports.

In Large Project Domains, it facilitates managing and controlling stakeholder engagement while reporting tasks that their reports are responsible to do
in order to contribute to efficient project execution, to add to the project knowledge base, and to suggest when to engage stakeholders so that the owner’s representative and project manager maintain political support. The PM gains the owner representative’s trust when issues important to the owner’s stakeholders are attended to as promised. Therefore, Program Leader supports: developmental, engineering, construction, owner-managed, and energy service company (ESCO) projects.
