What is a Project Rollup, and what are best practices, tools and online templates for teams and organizations?
Definition of Project Rollup
A Project Rollup provides an overall glimpse of the current status of a multitude of individual projects. It is usually presented as a dashboard or in spreadsheet format and shows a topline view of projects so that project managers and stakeholders can instantly evaluate their progress.
Description of Project Rollup
A Project Rollup is an at-a-glance measurement of the current scope, budget and time constraints on various projects for Project Managers and other internal leaders. The metrics covered in the Rollup are the same as those measured individually in the Project Tracker, then several projects are simply rolled up to show a top-line view. The metrics shown in a Project Rollup can vary, but usually include the following elements that are also measured individually in the Tracker:
- Project Owner
- Priority Level
- Resource Availability
- Progress Level
- Budget versus actuals
- Risk Level
The benefits of using a Project Dashboard for any project, large or small, is the ability to quickly access critical data to determine how a group of projects is progressing and make corrections that result in a more streamlined process. When all stakeholders have access to the Project Rollup, they can stay abreast of developments and progress, resulting in better communication and greater efficiencies.
