You are two days late on reporting status for a project that you are managing. The status report indicates that the project is lagging behind schedule. During the current week, you are confident of making up some of the lost time. How should you report project status?
A. Since the status report is already due, do nothing. Send out the status report next week when the project is back on track.
B. Since the status report is already 2 days overdue, you may communicate to stakeholders that you will send a consolidated status report next week. In this manner, you can avoid being untruthful or falsifying reports.
C. Send out a status report to all stakeholders indicating that the project is on track. Once this week goes by, things will be fine and the status reports will be back to normal from next week.
D. You should report project status exactly as it is. You may also mention that you expect to make up some of the lost ground, but will truthfully represent current status.
