Here in the central IT division at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, we've elected not to do an annual report, primarily due to lack of resources. For the past few years, we have created an accomplishments document that we share with our Vice Chancellor.
I would be curious to know, for those of you who are doing an annual report, how you measure whether or not it's worth the effort. Do you receive comments? Track views online?

Subject: [ITCOMM] Annual Reports - decidedly none?
Dear fellow IT communicators,
If we may revisit annual reports once again... I mentioned a few months back that we here in Princeton IT are in the process of renewing our look and method for delivering an annual summary of our IT advancements and achievements. Our past reporting method was by way of the traditional annual report, which was both printed and published online, but only as an optimized PDF.
In preliminary meetings to discuss the direction of our future annual reports, a very good question came to the table. The question was, do we need an annual report at all?
So I'm wondering.... have any of you had this same conversation within your organizations and decided to NOT produce an annual report? And if so, what led you to this decision?
And, if any of you recently radically redesigned and updated your organization's annual report, may I contact you?
Thank you for any and all feedback! It is most appreciated.
