Greetings all!

[Cross-posted to TECHWR-L and Techshoret]

I'm looking for ideas about team/project-tracking documentation group
managers. Our goal is to institute weekly/monthly reports that each team
member generates. These reports will be compiled into a total team
report (spreadsheet) which can be used to assess percent completion of a
project and as a learning tool for how the team structure and allocation
of resources can be improved (along the lines of the "Creating a
Tracking System" chapter in Hackos' book Managing Your Documentation
Projects).

Questions to managers (and lone writers) who generate reports:
1) What are suggested categories for such a spreadsheet? For example,
* General Systems (computer booting, e-mail sorting, system shutdowns,
report filing, etc.)
For a specific project:
* Research
* Interviews
* Learning the product
* Documentation outline
* First draft creation
* First draft review
* Second draft creation
* Second draft review
* Project management (project notebook maintenance, zipping files, etc.)
* Printing/pdf'ing/
* indexing
* editing

2) What tool/format do you use to have individual members prepare
reports (Excel, etc.) and how do you combine these reports into one
final resource tracking report?

3) Any other thoughts/ideas about project tracking?

4) Does anyone have any sample Excel spreadsheets that they would be
willing to share?

Thanks very much, in advance, for any and all help.


Debbie
