End Project Report

Here you can find a simple End Project Report template in Microsoft Word/Excel format, along with explanation on how to use it.


Congratulations, you’ve finished the project!

Well, the End Project Report is also prepared when you close the project prematurely; so, I hope that’s not the case for you. But wait, isn’t it better to cancel a project that is not justifiable rather than continuing it and losing more money? Canceling projects is a sign of good project management, because when you’re not good at it, you won’t know that you should cancel the project.

What would you include in an End Project Report?

Some information about the products makes sense. But more importantly, there are usually open issues when we close the project, so we should create a list of follow-on actions, with a column for the owner. As the Project Manager, you may not know who’s going to be the owner, but leave the column there and let the Project Board, or someone else, fill it in.

Then, we can review the justification of the project for the last time; see what we expected and what really happened. It helps for the future projects. However, note that the Benefits Management Approach continues to live after the project, and there will be some people thinking about the benefits of the project and updating the information.

Also update the project objectives table; it’s a great piece of historical information.


These are the main sections of the template:

eLearning Courses

If you’d like to learn everything about PRINCE2, I can suggest our eLearning courses:

The first few lessons in each course are free. You can start taking the courses right now and make sure it’s what you’ve been looking for before you buy.

Note: The first 30% of the courses used to be free, but because of the recent constraints from PeopleCert, we’re not allowed to offer more than 15% of the scope or more than 90 minutes of the duration for free.
