Ina project administration, there are various forms of report patterns that are utilised to demonstrate the present Myki project presentation(Poston, et. al., 2019). In this, it is examine that report status have some issues and challenges which are described and also some differences among a status reports develop for group, steering, and sponsors boards.
The communication is vital for fruitful plan supervision, and status reports are the major methods that are mainly used by project managers to interact with stakeholders. Various information are required while developing project such as performance, risks, issues, problems and overall progress and many more.

Types of status reports:

Challenges of status report

In my view, the major issues and challenges concerning the report eminence is not developed and update the reports, but this is capable of enhancing the communication in the project so that they can properly manage the project. according to my individual understanding, I have analyzed that a huge figure of Myki assignment rank information were mainly mistreated by stake-holders, most of them were not planned, enclosed unrelated news, and did not able to gain the attention of stakeholders.

Targeting the audience
It has been analyzed that generally time; standing information should be unique which includes sponsors, assignment teams, and navigation board. At the time of announcement, assignment manager need to examine the entire stakeholder’s record and also evaluate how, when, and what the report is required to be relieved. There are few forms of distinction amid the rank information that are developed for specific assignment group, committee and task sponsors that are described as under:
• The report developed to assignment sponsors or map-reading commission that may have a diverse intensity of aspect in evaluation to the news which are developed to assignment group for instance technical problems or various tasks.
• Information are prepared to clients which may not embrace in the internal issues and cannot be disclosed at any time (Fernandes, et. al., 2020).
• Information developed to assignment panel members may not consist of classified data for instance budget details, economic statements, tactical decision that is important for task.
It is significant for mission director is to focus on various other factors that should be taken into account at the time of doing planning communication for the MYKI project.

It can be over and done with the position report is an imperative task communication method and this is required to be a plan, develop, and modified the Myki Project in a better manner.
