When Do I Need a Project Analysis Report?

The recommended frequency of a project analysis will vary on a project-by-project basis.

  • A short-term to medium-term project may need only one or two overall assessments: one at the beginning (usually called a feasibility report) and one at the end (postmortem or impact study).
  • Longer-term projects may need several as needed, including the feasibility report and the end analysis.

A rule of thumb: Whenever you’re tempted to call multiple group meetings or you have a nagging feeling you are getting off track, listen to your businessman’s gut and conduct a project analysis. Something may be off, or something may need to be brought back into focus.

How Do I Conduct a Project Analysis?

One effective way is to outline a report in writing. You may use any kind of data management and presentation tools to help you here, including

  • bar graphs,
  • tables,
  • pie charts,
  • flow charts,
  • timelines, and
  • other statistical tools.

If you’ve ever done an assessment of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of any given venture (i.e., a SWOT analysis), you will have a good idea of what to focus on in a project analysis.

How To Use These Templates

There are a variety of templates here for every kind of big-scheme project that requires careful scrutiny of a lot of details and how they play toward the project goal. Not all project analysis are created equally. Here you can find examples for

  • risk analysis—to be taken before starting or when encountering obstacles along the way;
  • post-project analysis—the postmortem;
  • software analysis—an example of product testing, assessment, and development;
  • project appraisal and impact analysis—to touch base and see to the end;
  • investment and stakeholder analysis—to determine financial standing;
  • project management—to handle operational details;
  • financial and economic analyses—surveying the market;
  • project feasibility analysis—initial development assessment, which every serious project should start with; and
  • project gap analysis—to determine the difference between where the project should be and where it is.

On this last point, if you want to focus on assessing gaps in performance, this can also be effectively accomplished using a Gap Analysis Template.
