The one pasted below is more aimed as a straight up project status report. It uses a number of visual and structural aids to help with the rapid digestion and preparation such as colour for milestone status. You can also include progress or burn down charts in the excecutive summary
Ideally, you would create a live version, based on your project management tool of choice. Sometimes, though you just need to hand curate a template.
