Project Recovery Status Update
Throughout the project, status meetings are held both at a steering committee level as well as with the project team. Our easy to read key performance graphic immediately alerts the reader to potential problems via GREEN, YELLOW and RED indicators. The categories can include “soft” indicators such as Culture to gauge how well the company culture at the Client fits with the GSI culture.

This status is backed up by a weekly status report that further goes into the constraints of scope, time and cost.
