Engagement Portfolio Report

The Engagement Portfolio Report is ahigh level report used to view all engagements that are active at a particular moment in time. Use this report to discover how all engagements are performing

by viewing profitability, percent complete, and comparisons to budget. Like the Ginsu report, the engagement portfolio report will show actuals to date using historical time and costs, as well as estimate to complete using projected data.

The other way the engagement portfolio report differs from the Ginsu report is in the level of detail that is available. The engagement portfolio report was intended to be a high-level view, and as such, wasn't designed to give you detailed information such as time-phased data (e.g., week-by-week breakdowns) or detail below the engagement level. Rather, the engagement portfolio report was intended to allow you to identify engagements that are in trouble. You can then use an Engagement report or Ginsu report to drill down into the details.
