Project Details are necessary to specify the way in which the project is represented to a viewer – they are additional pieces of information that you may discover when drilling down into a project-related data, so your understanding of this project becomes deeper or wider. Project details can be derived from specific project documents that can be used by a reader to enlighten himself on certain aspects of the project, or they can be collected and summarized in some kind of report. Project details may be requested and utilized by project auditors, by project portfolio managers, or by anyone else who wishes to learn more about that project.
Project details may refer to the following project conceptions:
- More information about the project’s business case and underlying problems;
- Project identities (identifiers of a project to point it in the company’s portfolio or register);
- Staff members (to know more about their roles, their personal details, contribution, etc);
- Project history (issue cases of project execution, and lessons learned);
- Current status of the project (budget and schedule performance);
