There is a major problem with reporting. The writers often do not understand enough about the science of reporting. In addition, too many reports have been prepared monthly, which is far too late for prompt action.

The reporting framework used in an organization must accommodate the requirements of the different levels in the organization (board, senior management team, middle management, and the various teams) and the reporting frequency that supports timely decision making.

See an extract of my Chapter 14 Reporting Performance measures from Key Performance Indicators 3 rd edition.
