Spreadsheet Template for Weekly CAD Manager Reports

26 Sep, 2012 By: Robert Green

CAD Manager's Toolbox: Try this shortcut to creating informative reports with a minimal time investment.

As I discussed in my article, "Improve Your Job Security with Weekly CAD Management Reports," I believe that a weekly report to your senior management team is one of the best things you can do to illustrate your value as a CAD manager and build credibility. Best of all, you can reap these benefits without investing a lot of time in the process. A concise summary of your weekly activites can be prepared — and read — quickly.

To simplify the reporting process, I’ve created a sample spreadsheet. Feel free to use this spreadsheet as a modifiable template for your own reports.

You'll see a screenshot of the spreadsheet below; you can download the template file from my web site.

I’ve tried to make this as easy as possible, so you’ll have no reason not to start preparing weekly reports. Best of luck.
