I am looking for a report that will cover the folowing
In my mind, I sort of see a 3 pager, produced by the Release Lead weekly with elements such as:-
Release Owner, Release Title : RAG previous, this period
High level freehand text of explaining why not green and RTG.
A section which has a high level time line, with key milestones only
A section which has the risks and issues aligned to the milestones (nearest first)
A section for deliverables with columns on B/l date f/c RAG and a column for commentary
A section for milestones with columns on B/l date f/c RAG and a column for commentary (these will be plucked from the plan and inserted in their reports so that things don’t drift from the plan
A section on Resources – maybe around resource challenges – we need to be careful here as confidential info can’t be displayed here
A section on their next SG and what’s occurring (or not there)
Then, I would say a couple of rows per Release associated workstreams (OTC, User Access, Testing etc.) with relevant columns in order to communicate the story that week – this will take a bit of thinking about as we don’t want to repeat the above.
There is an argument that this can be in PowerPoint or excel, but either way must be easy to get into PowerPoint.
