The 10 Commandments of Reporting

1. The why of reporting is forecasting

The reason why we do reporting is to gain insight from the past, learn from how the actual results have deviated from our expectations and adjust our views about the future. 

2.  Do not call reporting what is presentation of past data

Presenting past results without any insight into deviations from a reference or comparison to a benchmark does not trigger any discussion or learning.
